Printmaking – 2nd Place
Definition is a photo lithographic print addressing the refusal of the Ohio Department of Health to change gender markers on the birth certificates of transgender citizens, regardless of any surgeries or legal changes they may have made. This ban both serves to legally invalidate transgender identities within the state, and place those affected in a state of permanent uncertainty and contradiction regarding their legal gender.
