LGBT persons living with MS photo-exhibition

This website is part of  a PhD research project that explores the psycho-social experience of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans* (LGBT) individuals living with the chronic condition of multiple sclerosis (MS). MS is a degenerating, autoimmune, neurological condition which is highly unpredictable and individualised and it has physiological, psychological, and social impacts. This study set to illuminate the MS experience of LGBT individuals.  The participants were the experiential experts of this life experience and they provided visual (photos) and verbal (interviews) testimonials.

Some of those photographs were used in the exhibition that followed and it was an integral part of the project. The photographs, exhibits and the captions were used as means of expressing an experiential truth, and alongside the engagement event that accompanied the exhibition were used as a platform. A platform for the LGBT persons living with MS to share their life stories directly with the public. The website is an immediate outcome of the exhibition and the engagement event. Here you can find the virtual version of the exhibition with a gallery of the photos, a summary of the engagement event, and the discussions that ensued; some information about MS and LGBT individuals; and a number of links that provide more details about the topic.
