Beloved Queer and Trans Photography and Storytelling Project announces 2nd Canadian Tour

Toronto's top dog photographer and founder of the Rescued by Love Project kicks off 2024 Tour for Trans Day of  Visibility

Toronto— Celebrated dog photographer Jack Jackson has announced that the Rescued by Love tour will kick off in British Columbia to celebrate Trans Day of Visibility on March 31, travel around the Yukon in August for Pride and wrap up in Newfoundland and Labrador for Trans Awareness Week in November.

Jackson started his non-profit, storytelling project five years ago to show what happens when people experience discrimination, isolation or hate and how people thrive when they feel loved. His portraits and narratives capture the bond between queer and trans people and their rescue dogs who have often overcome significant challenges together.

Asking Jackson about the choice of dates he advised, “Whilst there has been far more awareness of trans issues in the last 10 years, it’s disheartening to see the recent use of trans people for cheap political point scoring. Despite the headlines, I don’t believe this scaremongering by politicians is reflective of actual public sentiment. I think overall there’s a growing trend towards awareness and support of trans people. Positive representation, visibility and stories from trans people are crucial to continue this trend which is why I am so passionate about this project.”

Applications are now open to take part in the free photography project. The only eligibility requirements are that you be 2SLGBTQ, own a rescue dog that has had a significant transformative impact on your life, and you’d like to help other people by sharing your story.

Individuals interested in donating to the non-profit or businesses looking for attractive sponsorship opportunities can find more information here.
