Location: Birmingham Museum
18th January 2014 - 16th March 2014
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.

Being Transgender or Gay is not a choice, being Transphobic or Homophobic is, so don't be a Twonk
