April Ashley: Portrait of A Lady
(Museum of Liverpool exhibit 2013 09 27 - 2014 09 21)

From the Museum of Liverpool's page:-

Born in Liverpool in 1935, April Ashley MBE, a former Vogue model and actress was one of the first people in the world to undergo pioneering gender reassignment surgery. As one of the most famous transgender individuals and a tireless campaigner for transgender equality, she is an icon and inspiration to many.

In this exhibition, for the first time, we explore April’s very public story through her previously unseen private archive and investigate the wider impact of changing social and legal conditions for all trans* and lesbian, gay and bisexual people from 1935 to today. You know that I would not post links to other people's articles unless they were well worth sharing. This is definitely worth reading - and this exhibition in Liverpool is definitely worth going to see. I heartily recommend that you see the exhibit and visit the site.
