An essential participant in the Changing Minds project has been Margaret Pepper. After 35 years of being married as a male, Margaret decided to start taking hormones in order to become a female. Documenting the difficulties associated with the LGBT+ experience through interviews, talks, workshops and her artwork, Margaret has played a vital role in informing the project.

Generously donated to our archive, a selection of Margaret's artwork is available to view in the gallery below, alongside 'Margaret's Story' - a collaborative film made by Redbridge Rainbow Community and Eastside's own Alexia Dickinson.
