Challenge your assumptions and celebrate diversity

Brimbank City Council is proud to present Outing Disability – a photographic exhibition.

The exhibition is part of the Midsumma Festival and presented in collaboration with Family Planning NSW, GoWest and internationally acclaimed photographer Belinda Mason.

This captivating series of portraits provides a rare insight into the hopes and dreams of 23 unique people as they share their struggles and triumphs of coming out, exploring identity, discovering love and finding pride.

The exhibition challenges assumptions and invites viewers to enter a world of strength and a celebration of diversity.

The exhibition will be opened on Monday 16 January and includes a panel discussion, featuring Sally Goldner from Transgender Victoria, Mellem Rose from Bisexual Alliance Victoria, Jax Jacki Brown (freelance writer) and one of the exhibiting artists Steve K, who is travelling from Sydney to take part in the discussion.

Bookings are required to attend the opening and to view the exhibition.
