For more than 30 years, New York based photographer Allen has been documenting transgender culture worldwide, and has for her show at Yeelen captured the transgender community of Cuba through 80 vibrant color photographs. Opening in October 2015 in one of the largest constituencies of Cubans and Cuban-Americans outside of the mother country, never has TransCuba been as relevant in time and place than in Miami.

Allen’s work focuses on the details of the everyday lives of her transgender subjects, engaging with family and friends andthe community at large in Cuba; and revealing the growing visibility and acceptance in a country whose government is transitioning into a more “relaxed” model of communism.
