A safe space is a place where I can express myself, where I can be vulnerable. As a queer person, I need that in order to take the strength of being who I am.

I met Bella, a trans woman who is transitioning right now. Together, we decide to stage a safe space were she could express who she already is, beautiful and vulnerable, during the ritual of the bath.
