At its heart, SAY LOVE is simply individuals telling their stories.

At its heart, SAY LOVE is simply individuals telling their stories.

Where did Say Love come from?

Say Love started with two ladies in a coffee shop talking about writing a piece about being gay. It rolled into people telling their stories through photography, movement, music, spoken word, narratives and scenes.

What is the concept of Say Love?
The common denominator between all humans is love. To give love is to show love for oneself. Only then, can one truly show love for others. The desire and mission of the project is to create dialogue between people and forge a path to understanding.

Why are you doing this?
I am an artist, and an educator whose parents aren’t fully accepting of the fact that I am in love with a woman, and I want to present a story that speaks to them and people like them.

What is the future of Say Love?
The future is January 29th and 30th at 8pm at Gallery5.
In this next installment at Gallery5, the Say Love Project has chosen the theme Love and Hate. The artists aim to show themselves and the LGBT community as individuals…people…human beings, through visual art, movement, music, spoken word, narratives and scenes. The goal for the ensemble is to break down hate and fear through the power love and personal stories.

The SAY LOVE Project, Gallery 5, and GayRVA present:
