Outcome - exhibition launch event
Wed 3 May 2017, 18:30 – 21:00 BST
Over 100 portraits (and counting) of LGBT people with the attributes of their everyday life, and a photograph of themselves as a child.
Photographer Tom Dingley's Outcome project captures people from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) community as they are now - as out adults. With each person holding their own childhood photograph whilst also containing a reference to their current daily lives.
Outcome celebrates the diverse and varied roles LGBT+ people can and do fulfil. The portraits demonstrate there are LGBT+ people represented in all aspects of everyday life, challenging stereotypes as to what LGBT+ people look like - becasue there is no absolute definition.
Our launch event features readings from lesbian poets Joy Howard and Kate Foley, and music from Sheffield’s own Out Aloud choir.
The Outcome project has been published with Arachne Press.
