The IDENTITY Project – A Portrait of a Community, by award-winning photographer Chris Jepson, is an exploration of what it means to identify as a member of the LGBTQ+ community today.

In collaboration with Seahaven Family Pride, this compilation of portraits showcases the vibrant spectrum of faces within Seahaven’s LGBTQ+ community. The objective is to challenge stereotypes and dismantle assumptions linked to perceived identities, and give young queer people and those from marginalised backgrounds role models to look up to.

Homophobic and transphobic hate crime continues to be a blight in our society. Hate is often motivated by the unknown, and by displaying this exhibition, the project will help improve community cohesion through making visible the depth and similarities in the identities we share.

The first exhibition of the images was at Seahaven Pride at the Martello Fields, Seaford on 26th August 2023.

A second edition is coming in early 2024 – GET INVOLVED NOW!
