Through close readings of self-published books, grassroots exhibits, traveling slideshows, photography workshops, correspondences, and short-run publications, Goldberg explores modes of dialogue that revolve around the production of influential images to study how the permission (or lack thereof) to take and distribute images of trans and queer individuals was first achieved, the release said.

Goldber's late father, Ira, and mother, Ellie, were longtime members of Bnai Keshet until they moved to Florida.
