Abundance is a story pantry affirming Transgender and Gender Diverse (TGD) people as they age. The project was inspired by recent research on TGD elders experiences of ageing and abuse. We heard from TGD people that, alongside strategies to address rights violations, there is a need to affirm TGD identities and build hope. Abundance draws on the wisdom of TGD elders, in partnership with younger TGD folk, to document stories and offer hope for TGD people as they age.

I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed working on this project. It made my heart sing! It’s still singing!
With support from City of Melbourne, we launched the Abundance workshop as part of the Victoria’s Seniors Festival 2017. Award winning film maker Logan Mucha was also there to capture the day. You can see his film here.
The Abundance Project is a collaboration between Lisa White – The Social Photographer and Dr Catherine Barrett of Alice’s Garage.
