In the deep end: Stripping down for underwater photography

GayCities encourages you to stay safe during the Covid 19 pandemic. If you choose to travel, we recommend that you follow all CDC Travel Guidelines and adhere closely to all local regulations regarding face coverings, social distancing and other safety measures.

We may still be quarantined in fundamental ways–no bars or crowded restaurants that are staples of gay life quite yet–but chlorinated water has been deemed safe, so people are diving back in at a safe distance. GayCities unearthed this interview and photo montage from last year to remind us of the liquid pleasures ahead as a nation besieged by its own national leadership haltingly (and, hopefully, carefully) opens up again.

Photographer Lucas Murnaghan‘s 10×10 Photography Project celebrates queer Canadians in the arts.

In an exclusive partnership with GayCities, Lucas shared some of his underwater work.
