Love is Love

Love is Love: A Walk Down Memory Lane With LGBTQ Rights Dave was commissioned by Joey O’Gorman as part of the Catalyst Walks series

This walk considers the narcissism of confessional narratives, the politics of sexuality, and the skulduggery/pragmatism of people taking on other people’s politics for their own benefit/the benefit of many. LGBTQ Rights Dave talks about his life and all he’s done for LGBTQ rights (like voting NOT to get rid of Section 28 AND against gay couples adopting children – cheers Dave) and then fighting for gay marriage cos he’s all about LOVE (and votes). It’s basically an embodied exploration of appropriation, assimilation, and arseholes.

Thanks to Jordan Hutchings for the photos, Leonie Hannan for the video and to Queer Space Belfast for their participation.
