“Despite both medical and legal consensus, 30 states allow health insurance plans to exclude transgender-related health care from coverage. Most of these states are in the South, Midwest and Great Plains, and most have a relatively high proportion of rural residents.” #linkinprofile #reportage #atlantaphotographer #editorialphotographer #georgia #makeportraits #transgender #trans #healthcare #everydayruralamerica

Some scenes from the destruction left behind after an EF-4 tornado hit rural Lee County, Alabama and killed 23 people on Sunday, March 3, 2019.
I met Rodger Adams, 68, as he was clearing a fallen tree from a friend’s yard who had not survived the storm. Adams only realized he knew the homeowner once he arrived, to help his son clean up a co-worker’s property, and someone referred to the victim by his nickname, Road Dog. David “Road Dog” Dean, 53, was home alone when the tornado struck, completely destroying his trailer. Family members solemnly sifted through the debris, setting aside personal effects where the home once stood. Dean’s motorcycle and semi truck were left undamaged. Two houses away, on the same side of the street, Grenadas Baker’s house was damaged, although unlike Dean’s, still on its foundation. Grenadas, 38, services Coke machines for a living. He, his wife, and their children had just finished a late breakfast when they realized they had to seek cover immediately and headed into the bathroom. When they emerged, biscuits sat neatly on a plate next to the stove, while the roof over, and entire wall behind, the sofa were gone. A tree branch pierced their toppled dining room table like a thrown spear. Baker, who was taking insurance photos when I met him, said that he was thankful. “I mean, we were scared. But the Lord kept us. Things you can replace. Lives you cannot.” Read more about the storms and what you can do to help @nytimes, thoughtfully reported by @alanblinder and Patricia Mazzei. Thanks to @morriganm for allowing me to help tell these stories.

Houses lay shredded, entire neighborhoods flattened and at least 23 are dead in the wake of Sunday’s storms in Lee County, Alabama. Tornadoes hit Alabama, Georgia and Florida on Sunday causing destruction. By Sunday evening, continuing into Monday, search-and-rescue workers rushed to help the communities that were pummeled by the storms. Gov. Kay Ivey of Alabama said she had spoken with President Trump and received assurances of federal support. @audramelton shot this photo on Sunday of a neighbor carrying out a basket of salvaged clothes in Beauregard, Alabama.

Buddy Pittard was a conservative Christian who thought his beliefs about capital punishment were unshakable. A death row inmate proved him wrong.
