Faces of Fairness

Project Description

Faces of Fairness is a multi-media project that brings greater visibility to the once hidden Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered community in West Virginia. The project also explores the numerous issues and inequalities that impact LGBT West Virginians across the state.

This groundbreaking project is the first of its kind in West Virginia and is comprised of a touring photography exhibit, a documentary film, and a web-based archive.

To date, Faces of Fairness had interviewed 14 LGBT West Virginians in 6 counties. The participants articulate the many issues that face LGBT West Virginians including second-parent adoption rights, medical benefits, hospital visitation rights, employment and housing discrimination, advocacy and political representation, transgender rights and protections, marriage equality, and bullying.
