‘A queer trans masc magazine’
A brand new, thick-bodied, visually-led publication centering trans masculine members of the queer community and created by Manchester-based creative Ben Saunders — alongside a whole host of queer models, poets, writers and contributors. Inside you'll find photography, erotica, illustrations, interviews and a very useful list of queer community resources to boot.
Strap is one of a handful of new queer magazines for and by the community who don't necessarily identify as cisgender gay men — which is the audience LGBTQI+ publications historically tend to cater for (The Bittersweet Review and HÄN are two others who are also platforming diverse queer voices). As such, Strap is a welcome addition to our shelves. And an incredibly hot one at that. Uff.
