The LGBTQ+=Me project created a portfolio of artworks originally envisaged to form a travelling exhibition for schools in East Sussex. The pandemic situation has meant that this is not currently feasible.
As an alternative, the team approached TechResort in Eastbourne who have digitised the art and created this online alternative.
We hope you find it enjoyable and thought-provoking
“I got out of this project more knowledge and a better understanding of the community past. It has definitely solidified some of my beliefs and made me feel like I need to help people, even within our community, understand what it is like to be me.”
“I learned how far we as a world have come and how far we need to go to make everything the best it can be. I now have a stronger respect for the people of the past who fought to make it so I could be me now and have a bigger desire to fight for total equality for future generations. I hope that what I have learned and what I have done can be used to help make the world safer for the next generation everywhere”.
“I enjoyed the project very much, it was fun learning about other people’s experiences”
“I’ve learnt a lot about LGBT history and how we’ve progressed over the years . I have a better understanding of what LGBT people have gone through and also how to be more comfortable in your sexuality and gender expression.”
“I learnt that lots of people don’t understand what being LGBTQ is really about”
“I learnt about other young peoples experiences of current LGBTQ issues”
“People got to express how they feel about being LGBTQ”
