From Saturday 24 July 2021 to Wednesday 1 September 2021, 10am – 4pm.

This photographic exhibition explores the dark of discrimination, faced by the LGBT+ parent/carer community, and the light of family life.

Brought to PHM by Proud 2 b Parents and artist Allie Crewe, this insightful exhibition has been created through working with LGBT+ parents/carers and their children for over a decade.

During this time many families have shared their own stories, difficulties and struggles whilst navigating the heteronormative idea of a family. Proud 2 b Parents therefore wanted to capture real family life from the LGBT+ parent/carer community and bring awareness of their lives and the ‘normality’ of everyday life.

LGBT+ parents/carers and their children are often overlooked due to their intersectional inequalities and can feel isolated within the community as family-based services do not often meet their needs. Therefore, raising awareness and understanding, whilst challenging assumptions is vital for these ‘unseen communities’, a key aim of the service Proud 2 b Parents offer.

Family Friendly exhibition, allowing families to see the similarities between family lives.  Suitable for all ages.

Please note the museum is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
