As part of the CELEBRATE: LGBT History in Cumbria Project, photographer and visual artist, Colin Tennant, spent time with a group of older people from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in Cumbria and documented aspects of their lives.
The project explores what it is like to be LGBT in a predominately rural community. The photographs illustrate the subjects’ daily lives and the connections they have to the places they call home.
A small selection of images will be shown outdoor in the garden of Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery between 13th and 26th of June 2016, while the full series will be included in the CELEBRATE exhibition from 10th September until 30th October and Elements festival.
CELEBRATE is developed in partnership between Tullie House and OutREACH Cumbria and supported by Heritage Lottery Fund.Suzanne Manuel
