The exhibition

A celebration of work from an intergenerational arts programme for LGBTQ participants


In collaboration with Age UK, on 4th December 2010 Gendered Intelligence hosted an exhibition showcasing the work by participants, aged over 50 or 16-24. Participants had been exploring how age plays a part in forming one’s gender identity and sexuality, and how different genders and sexualities are expressed across our aged (younger and older) bodies. The art works featured were a range of photography, film, drawing, creative writing, spoken voice & performance workshops.  The  event took place in the New Studio at Central School of Speech & Drama.

About 100 people attended the event.  Here’s what some of them said:

Let’s make it annual – bigger and longer running

A splendid and creative occasion, covering a wide range of topics and I found parts very moving

In over 20 years of working in the LGBT sector I have never been in a room where there been such a mix of LGBTQ people, young and old. A totally unique magical intergenerational LGBTQ event. Well done.

Wonderful music by a great female artist. Her song-self written was very moving.

Wish I could have been a part of it! Really great atmosphere and experience, really enjoyed the mixed media displays and music accompaniment! MORE PLEASE!

I found this a very affirming,  inspiring and creative performance. Reassuring as a mother of a transman

Wonderful – brought back lots of memories and felt very inspired.

Great to see we can blend gender, sexuality, age and come up with a fantastic inspirational collage of experiences.

Moved, moved, moved… so glad I came today.
