Arin Andrews, Edie Charles, Valentijn de Hingh, Ashley de la Cruz, Sawyer Devuyst, Peche Di, Dezjorn Gauthier, Trevon Haynes, Katie Hill, Eve Lindley, Niki M’nray, Ryley Pogensky, Ines Rau, May Simon, Ahya Taylor, Maxie Neu, and Gisele Xtravaganza. These seventeen extraordinary men and women, transgender individuals with diverse experiences and unique personal stories, are the faces of Barneys New York’s Spring 2014 campaign: Brothers, Sisters, Sons & Daughters.

Shot by iconic photographer Bruce Weber in New York City, with interviews by longtime contributing editor at Vanity Fair and author Patricia Bosworth, many were photographed, interviewed and filmed surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones. By depicting these human connections, Weber was able to represent both the struggles and triumphs a trans person may face in relation to their gender identity.

Barneys New York is proud to support the transgender community by partnering with two leading voices in the trans community, the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) and the LGBT Community Center (The Center) on the campaign hoping to help break stereotypes and build social acceptance of transgender people—long-standing goals of both The Center and NCTE.

To help further support The Center and NCTE, Barneys New York is pleased to donate 10% of all sales from its 11 flagship stores nationwide and Barneys.com on February 11th to the LGBT Community Center in New York City and the National Center for Transgender Equality. Total proceeds will be divided evenly between the two charities. www.barneys.com
