The exhibition aims to share "the narratives of hope, despair, ambition, confidence and desire" with objects "as diverse as the trans experience itself.”
It's a small collection of around 120 objects, accompanied by several interesting videos, running on continuous loops, and has a mission to bring real trans people's stories into the public consciousness, rather than the often sensationalised and unsensitive reports that are presented in the media. It's free to enter, and is housed in a single hall at the college's main base near Oxford Circus. I was touched reading many different tales, and the exhibition brought home to me just how diverse the experiences of the trans community are.
Anyone (whether able to visit the exhibition in person or not) is also invited to add their own contribution to the museum's online presence by adding photos about their own journey on its Instagram page, https://www.instagram.com/museumoftransology/, using the #Transology tab.The exhibition runs until 22 April.
