Pioneering Voices: Portraits of Transgender People

Pioneering Voices: Portraits of Transgender People is a traveling exhibit from the Family Diversity Projects. It includes photographs and interviews with a diverse selection of transgender people and some of their partners and children. Through first-person accounts and positive images, this exhibit seeks to challenge damaging myths and stereotypes about transgender people and to educate audiences about this marginalized, and often invisible group of people. This exhibit explores the many aspects of gender identity and variance by sharing these important, ground-breaking stories.

The Center for Diversity Education is hosting Pioneering Voices from Febuary 12 to April 7, 2017 in the UNC Asheville Karpen Hall Lobby. This exhibit is presented in conjunction with Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933-1945, an exhibit produced by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Together, these exhibits provide historical and contemporary perspectives on the lives of the LGBTQ community. Guided group tours are being offered for both exhibits.
