A comprehensive guide to what's happening at Birmingham's museums.

Mapping My Journey

Mapping My Journey

Location: Birmingham Museum

18th January 2014 - 20th 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.
