Birmingham (UK) art gallery exhibition

phpThumb.php The mapping my journey exhibition at Birmingham art gallery explores and celebrates the living memory and history of the transgender community in Birmingham and the West Midlands.  It’s free. It includes some non-binary as well as binary trans people. It’s got a mixture of videos, posters, presentations, audio stuff, display cases & writing. Definitely worth a visit. Running until 20th March.


I’m here, I’m queer, what the hell do I read?


This site has a great list of books – see the Books with Queer (Gender Non-Conforming) characters/themes section on the left hand side. Yeah OK it’s books aimed at teens. Yeah OK, I still read kids books sometimes. whatever..

Open barbers

Open Barbers  is a hairdressing service for all genders and sexualities led by Greygory and Felix. They offer a personalised and warm haircutting experience with a queer and trans friendly attitude. They seek to promote the diversity of identities in society and celebrate people’s appearance in the way they wish to be seen.

Mostly based in London, though they do things around the UK. They’ve got some great photos on their tumblr.
