Basil is the founder and director of Transilient. Transilient is a traveling photo and interview-based project. They candidly document transgender and gender non-conforming people in their day-to-day lived realities using only their voices.
The project attempts to humanize, educate and destroy the assumption that trans folks are solely defined by their physical experience and their oppression. To bring about understanding and tackle transphobia we aim to weave transgender lives into the overall human experience instead of merely focusing on the transition.
Transilient's objective is to create a platform that is accessible to all people, in and out of the trans community.
