El sabor del sol / Sun's taste 2021
When I discovered my gender identity, the containment and acceptance of my mother before my transition, made our bond transcend beyond the change.

I'm a 21 year old student of Sound and Image Design and I'm also a musician. I just love art and the way it can impact people, my belief is that the world would be a better place if we all just accept each other, that way everybody would be able to be themselves without feeling judged, and the best way to make this happen is by sharing our lifestories. Our life is art.
Since I am a trans man, I started transitioning about 3 years ago and I've been lucky enough to have support from my family, friends and couple. This experience has taught me a lot, and in the process I met really nice people and professionals who helped me through. Now, my way of helping others it's not by leading an example, but raising awareness and letting people who are struggling with their gender identity, know they're not alone. Not only them, but everyone else around them.
