The Museum of Transology: Halting the erasure of transcestry through collect-ivist curation

The Museum of Transology is raising awareness of the history of trans people. The Museum is presenting a collection of over 250 everyday objects representing 108 trans people's gender journeys from 2000 - today. These Include: fashion, beauty products, artist's installations, personal ephemera, medicines and gender clinic documentation, short films and music.

E-J Scott, Lecturer (and a University graduate) is the collector and curator of the Museum of Transology. He will discuss the Museum's collections and consider the inherent challenges surrounding archiving trans identities and categorising the objects' gender performativity.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear about this ground-breaking and hugely successful exhibition.
