Boys! Boys! Boys! Volume 5 – Paris Photo – 1-12 November on Paddle8

Boys! Boys! Boys! is a celebration of established and emerging queer and gay photographers. Combining more than 90 works by artists like Will McBride and Andy Warhol, as well as up-and-comers Tyler Udall, David Charles Collins, Aurélien Nobécourt-Arras, and more, Boys! is an evocative and exuberant testament of self-discovery, gender identity, and boisterous youth.

A limited selection of featured works is now available in a buy-now format through the debut Boys! Storefront, highlighting some of the auction’s biggest hits from past and present. View the Storefront here.

BOYS! BOYS! BOYS! is a global project, working with more than 50 photographers from 20 different countries, to promote queer and gay photography. “When we started this journey two years ago we could never have imagined it would grow into such a huge project”, said curator Ghislain Pascal, The Little Black Gallery. “That said, it still shocks me the level of homophobia we receive from the media and Facebook who refuse to feature photographs of men.” Future plans include a new Boys! Boys! Boys! book to be published by Mendo and teNeues in April 2020.
