AN exhibition by a Burnley artist which has been dedicated to transgender teacher Lucy Meadows has has gone on show at a county museum. Miss Meadows, 32, was found dead at her home in March, just three months after telling pupils she was undergoing a gender transition. Painter Chris Fittock said the works were inspired by his own four-decade struggle to come out as a cross-dresser. He said he hoped his work would ‘help spread the message of acceptance’ towards the transgender community.
