Breaking the Binary: A participatory exhibition about non-binary identity in Leeds

Breaking the Binary has been created by Cat Lane as part of a practical dissertation to explore the diversity of non-binary identity, understanding and presentation in Leeds.

The exhibition showcases stories and opinions of the participants involved in the project, through interview video clips, photos, quotes and artwork.

“We want to show that there is no one-way of being non-binary, there are no rules!”

“We encourage you to enjoy experimenting with your identity and hope you find solidarity with our stories.”
