jacket, badge

Department: Social History
Accession Number: 2019.137
This jacket was bought by Steve Allen from a charity shop and was one of his favourite things to wear. The badges on it include "Sister not cis-ter", "Transphobia it stops here", "Men of quality respect women's equality".

“Wearing my jacket was a public declaration of the politics, ideologies and ideals I adhere to. A suit of armour - I was showing the world my pride unashamedly. It took time to find my style and the confidence as wearing it meant a visual statement of being ‘out’“.
Steve Allen, 2019
