King Kristina Alexander, exhibition and theatre about trans-persons history
Many young transgender people today feel a loneliness in their thoughts about gender identity. Threats, violence and, abuse are commonplace. This project challenges norms and reduces prejudices by demonstrating transgender situations – both today and from a historical perspective. By taking participants on a journey through history, from the time of Queen Kristina until present day, the trans-perspective can be written into history. It also gives the understanding that the struggle for personal gender identity has been going on for centuries.
What the project delivers
Exhibitions and performances in six areas around Sweden. As well as, workshops, lectures, and discussions.
