Library Exhibition Celebrates Transgender Lives

Wednesday 20 November is the Transgender Day of Remembrance, commemorating those who have died as a result of transphobia, either through violence or by being driven to suicide. The month of November is a focus for Transgender Remembrance, for raising awareness of the continued hostility and violence endured by transgender people within our communities and for seeking the better understandings that bring tolerance.

The 'Living My Life' Exhibition has been curated by Lancashire LGBT in association with Lancashire Libraries, and it is a series of inspiring images that capture and celebrate the individual lives of transgender people. It will be on tour around Lancashire libraries in November marking the month of Transgender Remembrance. The exhibition aims to present positive images of trans people and also to improve understanding of the issues and challenges that trans people face.
Read more info about the exhibition here.

It will be launched at Lancaster Library on 31 October 2013 from 6pm to 8pm with an event at which people can meet Beth, Lee and Jasmine from the exhibition. Refreshments will be provided and everyone is welcome. Lancashire LBT hope that as many people as possible will come to the launch event or to see the exhibition during November.

The exhibition tour dates are as follows:

Lancaster Library 31 Oct – 9 Nov 2013
Blackpool Central Library 11 – 16 Nov 2013
Skelmersdale Library 18 – 23 Nov 2013
Burnley Central Library 25 – 30 Nov 2013
