This article explores Dry Your Eyes, Princess, a project that used oral testimony and photography to narrate the experiences of trans veterans of the British Armed Forces, an umbrella term for people whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from the sex they were assigned at birth. It discusses the historical background of the underpinning research and the impact of the project. It also reflects on some of the methodological considerations that arose as a result of the close collaboration between an artist, a historian and the trans community, particularly in relation to queer oral history.
