The exhibition Ik mag zijn wie er is (I can be whoever is there) shows portraits of elderly trans gender people. They were pioneers who discovered their feelings at a time when there were hardly any examples and role models. In the project Elderly Trans Genders, visual artist, film and theatre maker Erik Alkema and storyteller and writer Eveline van de Putte recorded their stories in a series of film portraits. Eveline van de Putte also published a book about them. This video exhibition about their insecurities, desires and courage will be on view in the Library of Utrecht (Neude) for a month from 19 November.
