1 June to 30 July 2017 | Opening: 1 June, 5.30
The Naughton Gallery, University Rd, Belfast
The Naughton Gallery proudly presents a comprehensive survey of the history of Hello Mr. magazine. Founded by New York-based Ryan Fitzgibbon in 2013, Hello Mr. consistently features an intelligent collection of articles, stories, interviews, photographic essays and reviews, starting meaningful conversations about the values and aspirations of a new, culturally inquisitive generation.
Celebrating and showcasing the diversity of gay culture, Hello Mr. is more than a magazine. It is a community of “men who date men”, starting new conversations about their interests, loves, hopes and fears. Whilst reflecting the varied experiences of gay men today, the magazine’s readership is much more widespread. Content is fuelled by reader submissions from around the world – ranging from interviews with musicians, artists and athletes to essays on notions of identity and progress – ensuring that Hello Mr. continues to maintain the universal relevance it has enjoyed since its debut.
To celebrate the launch of the exhibition, Outburst Arts joins Hello Mr. and the Naughton Gallery for a very special performance collaboration at the QFT about all things Manly. Hello Mr. LIVE presents: MANLY An evening of music, comedy and spoken word about masculinity, developed in collaboration with the Naughton Gallery at Queen’s and Outburst Queer Arts Festival.
