Exhibition Monday 10 October until 15 October, 10am-5pm (4pm Monday 10th)
The Outcome project: Photographer Tom Dingley started his #Outcome project in 2014, to photograph LGBT people with the attributes of their everyday life – their work or their interests; and holding a picture of themselves as a child – showing that it does get better, by providing young LGBT people with role models for life beyond adolescent angst, uncertainty and bullying. The message is: No matter how hard it is growing up and coming to terms with your sexuality or identity; you can be who you are, living a successful & happy life, out of the closet. The aim is also to help breakdown stereotypes of what a LGBT person looks like, or can be – because there is no absolute definition; as the project shows.
Tom has exhibited the ongoing project at London Pride, Brighton Pride, Student Pride, Digital Pride and as part of LGBT History Month celebrations. Adding more portraits to Outcome over time; the collection now includes Lord Chris Smith, Elly Barnes MBE, Britain’s Got Talent’s La Voix, Bake Off’s John Whaite, The Apprentice’s Sanjay Sood-Smith and Emmerdale’s Alicya Eyo and many other people. The project is a celebration of all LGBT people, known and unknown.
