To coincide with Sydney World Pride in Australia, The Little Black Gallery presents BOYS! BOYS! BOYS! World Pride, an exhibition of works by 62 queer and gay photographers, is at Working Dog Gallery, Sydney from 23 February – 11 March.
BOYS! BOYS! BOYS! is a project by The Little Black Gallery curated by co-founder Ghislain Pascal, to promote queer and gay photography.
It now represents more than 60 photographers from 30 countries – including China, India, Iran, Poland, and Russia where gay rights are repressed and queer lives under constant threat.
BOYS! BOYS! BOYS! includes exhibitions, books, a bi-annual magazine, photography competitions & courses, and an online art platform.
Working Dog Gallery is a new art gallery set up by photographer and educator Paul McDonald in St Leonards, Sydney, Australia.
Ghislain Pascal said: “It’s great to be bringing BOYS! BOYS! BOYS! to Australia to celebrate Sydney World Pride. In the past years we’ve had exhibitions in Amsterdam (The Ravestijn Gallery), Cologne (Galerie Biesenbach), London (The Hospital Club), Los Angeles (Fahey Klein Gallery) and Paris (Tom Greyhound) – so it is good to head down under to Australia where we already have a large following. This is our largest exhibition to date featuring all 62 photographers we represent. It is really important for all of my artists that we exhibit their work to the widest possible audience. The whole point of our BOYS! BOYS! BOYS! programme is to persuade people that it is OK to buy art by queer and gay photographers to hang in their homes.
The publication of Volume 5 of BOYS! BOYS! BOYS! The Magazine will also be celebrated. It features ten photographers: Ahmad Naser Eldein (Palestine), Nigel Grimmer (UK), Lagartier (Mexico), Hannes van der Merwe (Canada), Jacopo Paglione (Italy), Francisco Rosas (Mexico), Ruben Van Schalm (The Netherlands), Liu Tao (China), The Skinny Type (UK), and a special feature and interview with Shen Wei (China / USA).”
