The wreath in the April Ashley: portrait of a lady exhibition

Yesterday, Wednesday 20th November, was Transgender Day of Remembrance. We laid a wreath in the ‘April Ashley: portrait of a lady‘ exhibition at the Museum of Liverpool to commemorate all those who have been murdered or taken their own lives because of transphobia.

Representatives from Armistead, Merseyside Police, Transforum, Homotopia and Trans-Chester joined visitors and staff in a minutes silence.
April herself suffered transphobia throughout her life, from family members, the media and also strangers in the street.
You can find out more about hate crime from members of the trans community and Merseyside Police in the exhibition.
