I am working with an association whose members provide a service to the transgender community. This service is a standard part of the M to F transition process and is not in any way sexual.
I am looking for tasteful, respectful shots of M to F individuals in relatively ordinary clothes and makeup. Head shots are good, but I'll gladly consider whatever is available. It is important that these people be transgender, as opposed to transvestites, cross-dressers, drag queens, men wearing women's clothing as a joke, etc. The people in the images should be attractive, but not sexualized. They should be well-groomed and have no facial hair other than eyebrows and eyelashes.
The transgender community is, for obvious reasons, very private, so this sort of image is hard to find. So far, I've only found one image that approaches my requirements. Can anyone provide more?

I only have editorial shots but cannot confirm they are genuine transgender. If you're interested in checking them out, I can give you a private lightbox link. Just sitemail me.

Note: My friend is openly transgender, has written songs about it and has also been the subject of a documentary.

@tirc83: Many thanks for the reply, but I can't use editorial shots for this project.
@Eyejoy: I'd love to see more pictures of your friend! Definitely potential there.

BTW, to those of you who sent me Sitemail, I just discovered that it exists and that I have messages! I appreciate the messages and will respond shortly.

Many thanks to those of you who have sent me images from which to choose. My association members are very happy that they are finally getting some images that will help them to include their many transgender clients in a positive and respectful way. I am getting a Lightbox together for them to choose from, so if anyone else wants to send me options, they are most welcome.
