Photographer Mia Nakano has spent the last eight years documenting still images and video of queer Asian-American and trans women from across the country for her Visibility Project.

In the video collection, the women discuss everything from how they deal with pronouns, the process of coming out in their own families, and general issues of gender and sexuality.

Nakano is on a Southern tour promoting the Visibility Project, and she'll be speaking at Rhodes College on Friday, November 7th. The free event will take place from noon to 1 p.m. in Hyde Hall of the Catherine Burrow Refectory on campus.

Those with specific inquiries about the event can contact Dr. Evelyn Perry, assistant professor of anthropology and sociology.
