We are writing to cordially invite you to attend our photo exhibition, “TRANSCENDENCE: Transcendence Journey: Incarnation of Charm and Elegance.” This exhibition is jointly produced by the Association of World Citizens Hong Kong and Photographer Candy Yeung. It features eleven portrait photos of transgender people living in Hong Kong representing their authentic side and for the public to understand the current situation of transgender people living around us. Through this exhibition dedicated to the transgender community, we hope to share the stories with our guests coming from all walks of life.
