All Genders Yukon
Transitioning into Visibility
 2018 05 Edge Invitation

Transitioning Into Visibility is an art exhibit that showcases the lived reality of transgender, two-spirit and non-binary Yukon residents and families in an intimate collection of voices. The evocative work of more than 20 local artists gives voice to a community that is seldom heard. From invisible to visible, each piece of work in this riveting collection is a powerful testimony to the trials and triumphs of people of all gender identities and expressions.

All Genders Yukon and Ignite Counselling are grateful for the sponsorship of The Wandering Bison, Yukon Arts Centre, Yukon Government and Arts Underground, without whom none of this would be possible.

Transitioning Into Visibility features the artwork of more than 20 transgender, two-spirit, and non-binary artists along with family members and loved ones. Artists range in age from six years old, to old enough that we know better than to ask! The works were created in therapeutic group and individual sessions in the care of a competent, Registered Art Therapist and Canadian Certified Counsellor who are the only medical professionals in the Territory who have received World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) training and certification. Works were created between September 2017 and April 2018.

Thank you to our sponsors and partners.
