Exhibition from "Twilight People" Project Opens in Coventry and Tours the UK

twilight people


One of the outcomes of the "Twilight People" project, co-sponsored by the University of Warwick's Centre for the Study of Women and Gender and the Department of Sociology, is a touring exhibiton. The exhibition was launched in February 2016 for LGBT History Month at Islington Museum and is now touring the UK. It will be shown in Coventry from May 4th to June 24th in The Pod (more details below). The exhibition will then tour the UK (for more information, click here).
The theme of the Twilight People exhibition is ‘body and ritual’, covering primarily the time period from the 1980s to today. Physical transformation, religious rituals and religious fetish objects (e.g. hairstyle, accessories, head-gear, jewellery, tattoos) are very often important symbols to mark both faith and gender journeys. Twilight People will capture the voices and images of gender-nonconforming people of faith and interpret them in a heritage context.
