Showing at the Pine Street Gallery over the next week, KISS is a series of photographs taken at queer community events across Sydney over the past few months, documenting expressions of love and the joy of a good pash.

Curated by Nick Baldas, the images were taken at the Valentine’s Day Marriage Rights Rally, smARTarts Youth Festival, an afternoon with Harbour City Bears, and the Rainbow Babies and Kids Christmas Picnic.

The exhibition documents real people participating in a peaceful protest in favour of relationship equality.

You can get involved, too. Visit the Kissing Booth at the Sydney Star Observer stall at Mardi Gras Festival Fair Day on February 20 and pose for a pash.

Your photo will then be sent to the Pine Street Gallery where it will become part of the travelling exhibition.

Take a five-minute wander down Cleveland St to Pine Street Creative Arts Centre and collect a hard copy of your image, free of charge, as your memento of Fair Day.

The exhibition runs from February 19 to 26, and launches at 11am-4pm on Sunday February 20.
