“Visibility is a gateway to addressing equal rights. The more queer people are seen and represented, the less criminalized our bodies become. With #VisibleLove we’re not only showing the bodies but also telling the stories – we’re ready to talk.”
– Christian Ruess, Creative Director and Founder of Container Love
Creatives, photographers, directors, editors, designers, artists, the people of our core team are working hard for a world that is more accepting, a society that is more equal. Coming from all over the queer spectrum and beyond, it’s our duty to set an example for real inclusivity where everyone has a place at the table. We are living in strange times, times full of hate and social tension with discrimination still being present beyond the polished, corporate surface. Everything we do, including our international exhibition series, Visible Love, was brought to life to fulfill one sole purpose: to make Love visible for everyone.
Container Love is a collective of many different people, each of us coming from very different backgrounds. We are gay, we are trans, lesbian, bisexual, non-binary, straight. We are colorful, we are all over the spectrum and we are everywhere. We believe that real, lasting inclusivity can’t be enforced but needs to be taught. Education and enlightenment can take many forms and our Visible Love exhibition and event series is indeed one of them.
