I created my magazine – The Unrecognized Gender

Hereby I proudly present the magazine created all by myself, from interviewing and writing to layout designing and printing: The Unrecognized Gender (with 48 pages)

A preview of the magazine:

Having spent three months on the entire product, I finally finished it with transgender people (generally refers to people who aspires to belong to sex that is different from his or her biological sex) as the main theme.

Apart from telling personal stories of several trans-men (Female-to-male transgender people) and trans-women(Male-to-female transgender people), it also looks into medical, legal and social impacts if a gender recognition scheme is to be implemented in the territory.

A couple of infographics and a timeline of related events were also attached to show the development of the LGBT controversy and the procedures of sex change application in Hong Kong.

It is my conviction that this magazine, which probably may be the first-ever and only publication that provides a universal view of the scheme and its consequences in the city, can be very meaningful to the public.

Thank you, my 20+ interviewees for accepting my interviewing and sharing their stories with me, especially for transgender interviewees who might have undergone life-long struggles.  I cannot thank my professor enough, who offered me so much help and advice during the process.
