Safe Space by Hélène Mastrandréas


“A safe space is a place where I can express myself, where I can be vulnerable. As a queer person, I need that in order to take the strength of being who I am.
I met Bella, a trans woman who is transitioning right now. Together, we decided to stage a safe space where she could express who she already is, beautiful and vulnerable, during the ritual of the bath.”
