In the summer I did an interview as part of a local trans oral history project. This interview - and some of the stuff we've created with Not Right - will form a small part of an exhibition in Birmingham from this weekend until early March.
From Gender Matters:
This exhibition explores and celebrates the living memory and history of the transgender community in Birmingham and the West Midlands.
Through compelling sound, photos, video, artwork, poetry and artefacts, ‘Mapping my Journey’ brings to life the places, events and personal journeys – for some decisive and swift but for others spanning decades – which makeup the heritage of the West Midlands’ transgender community over the past sixty years.
These stories represent part of our community’s heritage and aim to capture, record and preserve unique individual experiences of being transgender.
