What Makes a Man?
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

Trapped by societies gender normative expectations, this person struggles daily to live his life as the man he is in a society which tells us men do not have breasts.
Often people ask, "Is this a man with Gynocomastia or a preoperative transgender man?"
Either way, he is who he is on the inside. He is saving up his money for an expensive and transformative surgery.
Sometimes multiple surgeries are required to reshape a man's chest whether his "moobs" (man boobs) are from Gynocomastia, too much estrogen at puberty, being in transition from female to male, or some other reason. Yet this person clearly identifies as male even tho he feels like "a work in progress" May he reach the place in life where he loves his body; no matter how he arrives there.
This is a photo from Gender DiverCity, my photo blog project, exploring gender diversity in identity and presentation, body, mind and spirit in the world around us. You can see more Gender DiverCity photos at http://genderdivercity.blogspot.com/
