Overpass To Nowhere

Marcus Knupp  takes us on a journey to a place we’ve always dreaded to go and thankfully, haven’t  reached yet. To quote Samantha in HER: “The past is just a story we tell ourselves.” Here is Marcus’ version.  My mother and I had pulled off of highway 85 a good 4 hours outside of Atlanta, Georgia; she was driving me to

Book Club: BEARDS – An Unshaved History

Read More

  There hasn’t been another quite polarizing all-encompassing topic in (gay) men’s history as The Beard. A token of simultaneously maturity, religious belief and sometimes sloppiness – facial hair has always been carrying symbolic value based on its form, length, thickness and color. Spanning from a lazy 3-day-stubble to a monk-length beard and from precisely contoured piece of barber art

Have you met Jimmy? He’s been around for about 4 issues now and doesn’t plan on going anywhere. JIMMY is one of a few zines from LA focusing on queer culture while stroking a hairy chest.

Printed Matters #3: BLEND

Read More

Where do you see yourself in 7 years? I bet JOFF wouldn’t have been able to answer this question correctly even taking the wildest guess possible back in 2005. I takes courage and a plethora of multiplex talents to be the editor in chief and creative director of BLEND magazine. Some say it takes a village to put an amazing

Printed Matters #2: Death

Read More

Forrest Martin has more than a strange name (for my understanding of names, at least) to him. He is the mastermind behind Death magazine – a publication for existential hipsters, art enthusiasts and other culture obsessed homos. Forrest approached me earlier this year and sent me a couple of magazines over to Berlin. I was impressed and immediately wanted to

Printed Matters #1: meat

Read More

Guess what – print still does matter. You can make an awesome online publication, but you won’t get further with it. Print has definitely not the same value it had at its peak. Thus, it has a different position now. Buying print magazines is luxury; owning and collecting them has turned to a lifestyle not everyone can afford. I remember

DUST Magazine

Read More

In the industrial cities, tiny little particles in suspension flutter, coming from industries, cars and sometimes even from hydroelectric power stations: it’s the DUST. Hidden, silent, omnipresent in our lives, it lands everywhere: the house, the roof, among the hair, the fingers…. DUST is a publication that will be launched on September/October 2010 and that is brought to us with

Client #1

Read More

If someone told you there is a summer hole where nothing really happens and no news get published, tell them to shove their boredom and lack of motivation you-know-where. There is some fresh breeze on the queer press front and for once this freshness is not just a cheesy metaphor. Client is a truly unconventional (we’ll se about that!) magazine
