A transgender, non-binary artist has blown up on social media after sharing an image which shows themselves ‘free bleeding’ in public.
Cass Clemmer, a menstrual health activist and artist from Washington D.C. who does not confirm to a specific gender, and prefers to use they/them pronouns, caused quite a stir online after sharing the image on July 12.
The photo features Cass sitting on a park bench, having bled through their khaki pants, while holding a sign that reads: ‘Periods are not just for women.’ They then added the hashtag #BleedingWhileTrans.

Periods do not make someone a woman, and it’s not only women who have periods.

Artist Cass Clemmer, the artist and activist behind Toni the Tampon – an Instagram account about a travelling tampon, plus a colouring book based on the adventures of menstrual products – wants to help spread this message, and explain to people why periods aren’t just a women’s issue.

As a trans and nonbinary person, Cass doesn’t identify as a woman, preferring they/them pronouns. Cass also menstruates.
