Making Trans Histories Project

Gender Minorities Aotearoa co-developed and participated in this fabulous project from Te Papa Tongarewa Museum of New Zealand:

Trans Past, Trans Present; The Making Trans Histories Project.

”Trans people from their teens to their 70s were asked to identify objects of personal importance and to share the objects’ stories. What emerged was a quirky collection that is a testament to the diversity of trans experiences, and which disrupts established (and cis-written) narratives about trans lives.”

We are so grateful to Project Coordinator Will Hansen, and the team from Te Papa, for their enthusiasm and vision.
