On Sunday Surat-Shaan Knan will talk to us about the Twilight People project, Britain’s first and only source of trans & faith history and heritage. This hidden history explores the intersection of trans and faith identity via oral history, photography and film. The collection is now at the London Metropolitan Archives; its legacy is still growing and developing, e.g. book publication.
The Twilight People pop-up exhibition will be on display (free) at Exeter Central Library, Castle Street, EX4 3PQ on:
Saturday 11th February, 09.00 – 17.00
Sunday 12th February, 12.00 – 16.00
