Our love is the same love

Same Love Project

Couples! Do you fancy having your portrait taken in the comfort of your own home for free?

If so, photography student Will Corder might be your man as he’s working on a community based photography project called ‘Same Love’ and needs same-sex couples in our area to be sitters.

The project, initially confined to the Bournemouth area but now spreading east, was inspired by a quote from Stonewall:

“Long-term gay relationships are being publicly compared to ‘bestiality’, ‘slavery’ and ‘child abuse’ by opponents of equal marriage who will stop at almost nothing to prevent Britain’s lesbian, gay and bisexual people from enjoying this last measure of equality.”

Corder has decided to fight back with his camera and to make a body of work which can be shown in local public spaces like libraries and schools in the area where the photos were taken.

He said:

“Same sex couples are no different to any others.  I want to show them for what they are – caring relationships between two people. Gay, straight, or otherwise, it’s the same love.”
