About the exhibition

In Seahorse Parents, four pregnant transgender men proudly present themselves as ‘Seahorse Parents’, as the seahorse is the only species in the entire animal kingdom where the males are the baby carriers. What is a pregnant body ‘supposed’ to look like? How do these pregnant transgender men navigate a biased world? And what world do the parents hope to bring their children into?
