SKITTLES, in collaboration with GAY TIMES, Queer Britain, and Getty Images, has offered a glimpse into the collective’s forthcoming QUEER JOY exhibition.

From May 11 to May 13, an exhibition centred around the idea of “Queer Joy” will be showcased for free at Liverpool’s renowned Royal Albert Dock, courtesy of SKITTLES.

This exhibit aims to delve into the concept of profound happiness that brings meaning and warmth to the lives of the Queer community.

The exhibition will showcase striking portraits of queer people, captured by a variety of emerging international photographers. Through these images, the pop-up exhibition aims to shine a light on the unfiltered, queer self-expression that is vital to the LGBTQ+ community and highlight the feeling of Queer Joy. 

Guests will be invited to capture their own images within the space, pick up a packet of SKITTLES, and will also have the chance to have a portrait captured by a local queer photographer.

The QUEER JOY preview in Liverpool signals the start of a yearlong mission for¬†SKITTLES,¬†GAY TIMES,¬†Queer Britain,¬†and¬†Getty Images¬†who are helping millions of people to¬†‘See The Rainbow’ by working to improve LGBTQ+ representation in photography.

This year, the group will be capturing all identities in 1000+ images, to help tackle stereotypes in media and better represent the vibrant and dynamic LGBTQ+ community within the UK.  

Ryan Pardo-Roques, senior brand manager, SKITTLES said:

“Liverpool has an impressive history when it comes to LGBTQ+ movements and we‚Äôre thrilled to reveal a glimpse of our QUEER JOY exhibition in the city. This month, we will see a Europe-wide moment of cultural unity in Liverpool and we‚Äôre hoping that the exhibition will help further spark the feeling of queer joy, vibrant expression, and togetherness.

“The exhibition marks a three-year journey with our brilliant partners to help¬†create the LGBTQ+ archives of tomorrow, shaping theminto the dynamic and representative collections they ought to be. By helping people¬†‘See The Rainbow’¬†we hope to drive more acceptance through visibility!”

The free-to-attend exhibition is open from Thursday 11 until Saturday 13 at The Grand Hall in Royal Albert Dock Liverpool.
