Second–year Commercial Photography student Will Corder will debut his Same Love photography project with an exhibition at Poole Library.
The exhibition, which coincides with LGBT History Month, shows same sex couples taken at their homes.
According to Will, the Same Love project, “aims to stamp out homophobia and champion equal marriage by exploring same sex relationships to showing them for what they are – caring relationships between two people. Gay, straight or otherwise – it’s the same love.”
The project will start with an exhibition in Poole Library and move onto other public spaces to raise awareness of issues surrounding the public opposition that the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill has met.
Will added, “There is a high level of public misunderstanding about what it means to be in a same sex relationship which is driven by the stereotypes and ignorance that surrounds the LBGT community as a whole. As a marginalised minority group, whose members fear persecution, the voice of the LGBT community often remains unheard. This project will help raise their voice and spread the important message at a time where support is needed to ensure that equal rights are recognised.”
The Same Love project exhibition will launch at 6PM in Poole Central Library on Thursday 6th February, more information can be found at facebook.com/sameloveproject.
