Across the world we are faced with barriers that stagnate our evolution as a species. As we make great strides in equality, whether it be gender, race, sexual orientation or a host of other issues, we continually also take giant leaps backward. “Transform” strives to convey individual stories, but to also force us to examine whether any one person’s struggle is more valid or more deserving of our understanding than another. Maloy asks that our next great transformation be to embrace the beauty of the human experience in all of its forms. To understand that just because someone else’s path may appear different than our own, that we are all united through the pain and exaltation of the never ending changes that make up the life of every human being.
