Queer mug is a fun-filled project combining the joys of communication, with a large dose of humour, seriousness, and a dash of surprise. Sharing a cup of tea, coffee or champagne is a form of gesture that initiates friendship, conversation, a sense of community, a meeting with a stranger or a friend. The aim of using the everyday object, the mug, is to create a simple way of reaching in and being present in everyday lives of many Kristiansanders. Queer mug invites itself into people’s homes with the diverse, colourful, and unique mugs, and wants to initiate a more open and including conversation. With a Queer mug in ‘every’ home in Kristiansand.
