About the exhibition

Outing Disability invites you on a reflective journey into the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people with disability. This captivating series of portraits provides a rare insight into the hopes and dreams of 23 unique people as they share their struggles and triumphs of coming out, exploring identity, discovering love and finding pride. Challenge your own assumptions about disability and enter a world of strength and celebration of diversity.
