You refuse to believe that you ever like pink investigates the relationship between the photographer and mother Dena with her daughter Margaret, a young adult with Autism spectrum disorder who recently announced the new name and non-binary identity as Alex, and while Dena fully supports this, she’s learning who the new person is, learning to love who Alex is becoming, and considering her own evolution as a mother. The project You Refuse to Believe that You Ever Liked Pink unfolded over a year during which Alex and Dena came to understand what their transitions looked like and meant.
