Museum of Transology: Saving QTIBIPOC Transcestry

Book tickets
Until 09 Oct

A free exhibition from the Museum of Transology – Saving QTBIPOC Transcestry.

From Black Trans Lives Matter protest placards from London in 2020, right back to Zsarday’s beloved fur coat from her infamous 1992 Black Cap performance, this free exhibition by the Museum of Transology showcases a selection of objects from its QTIBIPOC collection tracing the intersectionality of the donor’s black and brown trans lives.

Using their own choice of artefact explained in their own words, the contributors take control of curating their personal stories, their expression of gender and their rightful place in transcestry.

The Museum of Transology is the UK’s most significant collection of objects representing trans, non-binary and intersex people’s lives. Each object donated to the Museum of Transology has a brown swing tag attached to it, with a handwritten message explaining its significance to the owner. This means both the story and the object are archived as two parts of a whole, never to be erased or overwritten. This is a deliberate strategy to ensure the experiences surrounding trans, non-binary, and intersex people’s everyday lives are recorded in their own words, forever.
