This summer Brighton Museum launches Be Bold, a series of collaborative events and exhibitions funded by Arts Council England and programmed in partnership with Brighton & Hove’s LGBTQ communities.

The Museum of Transology is a bold, brave and profound collection of artefacts and photographic portraiture that began with donations from Brighton’s vibrant trans community. Now comprising around 150 objects, the crowd-sourced collection is the largest collection representing trans people in the UK – if not the world.
