Representing queer culture in a positive light is something I feel passionate about.

Homosexuality was criminalised in my home country of Ireland until 1993, and growing up images or depictions of homosexual love or queer lives was either absent or, later on thanks to American sitcoms and tv shows, strangely sanitised and only played for laughs.

With this project I wanted to find examples of homosexual long term relationships; a long term relationship was something that was seen as unlikely if not impossible for gay men to attempt or achieve in my youth, especially with gay marriage not being legal.

I put out a call for couples who had been together longer than two years and interviewed them about their relationship as well as shooting their portraits together.
