Newcastle Exhibition Launches ‘Outing Disability’ Photograph Exhibition
Portraits showcasing LGBTIQ stories of coming out, transitioning, dating and finding acceptance.
Following a ground-breaking opening exhibition in Sydney last year, the Outing Disability photography exhibition is coming to the Newcastle Region Library in May 2015.
Developed in collaboration with internationally acclaimed photographer, Belinda Mason, Outing Disability is an intimate portrait series which takes the viewer on a journey into the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) people with disability.
Outing Disability showcases photographic portraits with individuals’ stories of coming out, transitioning, dating, and finding acceptance in a world that often makes invisible, the sexuality of people with disability.
The launch will be attended by Federal Member for Newcastle, the Hon. Ms Sharon Claydon, State Member for Newcastle, the Hon. Mr Tim Crakanthorp, and launched by ABC Newcastle Mornings host, Jill Emberson.
Date: Friday 8 to Saturday 30 May
Time: Monday to Wednesday 9:30am-8pm, Thursday to Friday 9:30am-5pm, Saturday 9:30am-2pm
