'When you are someone that falls outside of categories in so many ways, a lot of things are said to you. And I have had a lot of things said to me.'
In None of the Above, Travis Alabanza examines seven sentences people have directed at them about their gender identity. Sentences that have stayed with them; sentences that have impacted them for better and for worse; sentences that speak to the broader issues raised by a world that insists that gender must be a binary.
Through these sentences, which include some of their most personal transformative experiences as a Black mixed-race, working-class, non-binary trans person, Travis Alabanza turns a mirror back on society, giving us reason to question the very framework in which we live and the ways we treat each other.
Travis Alabanza is the subject of the exhibition 'A Girl for the Living Room' by Rene Matic at the Martin Parr Foundation 13 JUL - 13 SEPT 2023.
