Program Description

Specific Event Details

Authentic Selves is a museum-quality traveling exhibit including photographs and interviews with people of all ages who are trans, nonbinary, and gender fluid along with their family members. Through first-person accounts and beautiful images, this exhibit seeks to challenge damaging myths and stereotypes about trans and nonbinary people and to educate about this group of people.

This exhibit explores the many aspects of gender identity and variance by sharing stories. By encouraging people of all ages to affirm and appreciate diversity, this traveling exhibit contributes to the process of dismantling the destructive power of prejudice and intolerance. As a tool designed to prevent bullying and increase empathy and connection, Authentic Selves aims to make the world a safer place for all people.

This exhibit is presented in partnership with the Plymouth-Canton chapter of PFLAG. Founded in 1973, PFLAG is the first and largest organization dedicated to supporting, educating, and advocating for LGBTQ+ people and their families.
