In conjunction with Palm Springs’ Gay Pride Weekend Celebration, Savage Gallery presents a special Weekend exhibition: In Between & Outside: Portraits by Sara Swaty.

This portrait series examines different perceptions of gender and how it related to sexuality through exploring the human body and gender identity across a broad spectrum of individuals.

The works were created with an interest in how cultural preconceptions concerning gender have created unattainable ideals about masculinity and femininity. Subjects range from those born into a gender they do not identify with, to transgender individuals who have physically transitioned, thus altering their bodies. The images aim to share the personal stories of a gender variant community while challenging stereotypes that LGBT communities face.
