The Outcome project so far. Photographer Tom Dingley started his #Outcome project in 2014, to photograph LGBT people with the attributes of their everyday life – their work or their interests; and holding a picture of themselves as a child – showing that it does get better, by providing young LGBT people with role models for life beyond adolescent angst, uncertainty and bullying. The message is: No matter how hard it is growing up and coming to terms with your sexuality or identity; you can be who you are, living a successful & happy life, out of the closet. The aim is also to help breakdown stereotypes of what a LGBT person looks like, or can be – because there is no absolute definition; as the project shows.

Tom has exhibited the ongoing project at London Pride, Brighton Pride, Student Pride, Digital Pride and as part of LGBT History Month celebrations. Adding more portraits to Outcome over time; the collection now includes Lord Chris Smith, Elly Barnes MBE, Britain’s Got Talent’s La Voix, Bake Off’s John Whaite, The Apprentice’s Sanjay Sood-Smith and Emmerdale’s Alicya Eyo and many other people. The project is a celebration of all LGBT people, known and unknown.

The Launch Exhibition:

The University of Greenwich will host the launch and first exhibition as Tom is a Greenwich Alumnus and many of the portraits were taken locally. While exhibiting at the university, he plans to have as many of the 112 portraits on display as possible. Tom will have pop-up studio days for LGBT people who would like to be photographed for Outcome at the above address on Tuesday 11th & Thursday 13th October – drop in or arrange beforehand. The university is organising a number of events linked to the exhibition, including a public Q&A panel on Wednesday 12th 1-2pm.

Sarah Cretch, Head of Alumni & Development at the university says: “We are so proud that Tom is an alumnus and fully support his work. Tom and the whole Outcome project are a great inspiration for all our students and staff.”

Beyond the book.

The University Gallery Manager, Alumni Office, IT staff, LGBT Staff Network, and Students’ Union LGBT group have all been amazingly generous with time and space and organisation and have got involved in the project with enthusiasm. We are very grateful!lgbt-uni-logolgbt-uni-logo

The exhibition will be open Monday 10th October 10-4, and Tuesday 11th (Coming Out Day) to Friday 14th 10-5. Everybody welcome, and we are encouraging school parties, so if that might apply to you get in touch!

The launch party and private view is invitation only – Contributors, Arachne Friends and Funders – you will be invited automatically; apologies to everyone else, but do please come to the exhibition, or the other events around the launch – which are…
Tuesday 11th (Coming out Day) and Thursday 13th: Outcome photographer, Tom, will be hosting pop-up studio days if you would like to be part of Outcome. If you are LGBT and would like to be photographed do get in touch to suggest a time. Each person will get 20 minutes – so please come ready to be photographed and ideally with a copy of a clear childhood photo of you) before the age of 15, and by yourself please. Book your slot by contacting Tom: @OutcomeLGBT  – or tom_dingley@hotmail.co.uk
Wednesday 12th 1-2pm a free public Q&A panel about coming out featuring contributors to the project and the Students’ Union LGBT group (we haven’t finalised who yet). We think there will be tea and biscuits after. There are other events just for staff and students.
The book will be on sale throughout the week in the Gallery (whenever we are there, which will be most of the time) and at Greenwich Waterstones, next to Cutty Sark Station. You can of course also buy it from us via our web shop 

Ten days left to raise cash for Outcome LGBT Portaits book

With ten days to go on our crowd fund for Outcome, our first non fiction title, and our first photographic book, we are at 87% of our target. If you would like to back the crowd find you can do so on Kickstarter please spread the word, we still need  £304. It’s an all or nothing crowd fund, so if we don’t meet the target we won’t get any of the money and there will be no book.

We’ll be doing a round-up of where we are with the photographs later in the week, Tom had a pop up studio at the Ku bar in Leicester Square on Friday and is planning another this Friday,probably at the same place, so if you are interested and have yet to be photographed, get in touch! Although we are aiming at 100 photos of which 80 will be int he book, the more we have the more we can choose from, and the more flexible we can be in providing tailored versions of the exhibition to galleries, libraries, museums, community centres, schools and colleges. If you run one of these and would be interested in hosting the exhibition, please get in touch.

Outcome in Lewisham

An opportunity to see an exhibition of some of the photographs that will be part of Outcome, our first Photographic book. If it takes your fancy, you can get involved by being the subject of a portrait (if you are LGBT, obviously) or by helping us raise the money to print the book, or by offering studio or exhibition space.

last chance to see…

Our Cover Artists Exhibition at Lauderdale House closes soon, your last chance to see the pictures ‘in the flesh’ is this Sunday. There have been modest sales, but we’d really like all the artists to go away with at least one picture sold. They are a brilliant, diverse lot, and the exhibition looks terrific (though I say it myself, who curated and hung most of it!)

If you are thinking, I can’t possibly afford a piece of original art, then two of the artists have limited edition books with their illustrations in, for a very modest sum, which will obviously be an investment for when they are famous… more info in the catalogue

Obviously you can buy direct from the artists at any time, contact details for all of them here but there is something about seeing their work together, on the wall, that is rather special!
