Today, long-time friend and member of Baxter St, @mariettepathyallenofficial’s retrospective opens at the @museumofsexnow. Congrats, Mariette! ‘Rites of Passage, 1978-2006’ will be on view until September 8th.

Mariette Pathy Allen has been photographing the transgender community for over 40 years. The selection largely highlights a time before the internet, when often hard-to-find newsletters and magazines were essential lifelines, and protests and in-person conferences were one of the few safe spaces to be ‘out.’ #ritesofpassage #mariettepathyallen #museumofsex #photography #nyc #baxterstccny
