Experiencing Interruptions?

BRidGE

The mainstream society is a river that is composed of typical gender ideologies--- a river full of stereotypes and binary gender models. There's a group of transgender people spending their lifetime chasing and finding the true self in spite of being ostracized and discriminated against by the crowd. They rather are at their last gasp than giving up. ID is the abbreviation of "Identity". That fact that we identify ourselves as a part of the society and human beings indicates that we deserve physical self-determination as our fundamental right. Unfortunately, when transgender people want to be the “real” gender they desire, they are still compelled by the social institution to let self-proclaimed experts that they don’t even know decide who they are. In the circumstance, their gender identity becomes small and insignificant without any choice. Therefore, “id”, in small letters, resembles an insignificant existence or the lowness they must go through to get an ID card that represents their self-identification. Being kept in bondage of the society and being attacked by discrimination, transgender people have been tormented deeply. The only belief they hold on is to stride over the river of stereotypes and binary gender models and to authentically present their true self.
