British MP Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, in his book Friends, Voters, Countrymen (2001) commented that should gay marriage be OK, he “saw no reason in principle why a union should not be consecrated between three men, as well as two men, or indeed three men and a dog”.
As part of Pride season, and following Johnson’s logic, C4RD presents Queer Dogs, a celebration of LGBTQ+ people and their dogs. This is a progressive, collaborative exhibition: artists and amateurs are invited to make drawing portraits of LGBTQ+ dog owners with their canine companions. Drawings will be added during the exhibition period.
If you are an LGBTQ+ dog owner, you may send us an image of you and your dog, from which a drawing will be made by the artist collaborators at C4RD. If artists want to collaborate on the day, they may bring their unframed submissions to C4RD from 2pm on Friday 5 July and during the exhibition; these submissions will form part of the exhibition, and be given to the Albert Kennedy Trust for fundraising or be archived at C4RD.
