Summer 2023, 'Resilience'
Boy.Brother.Friend ‘examines art, fashion & theory through the guise of the diaspora male experience.’ A poetic and visually stimulating magazine, this sixth issue explores the notion of resilience, 'a key requirement to survive, and maybe even thrive one day', as founder Kk Obi writes.
Inside, a spotlight on the fashion industry's role in the wake of BLM, a history of the Afro-Palestinian community in Jerusalem, interviews with Ethiopian queer activist Faris Cuchi Gezahegn and trans performance artist (and former preacher) Va-Bene Elikem Fiatsi. And on the back cover, a tease of possible sister publication, Girl.Sister.Friend?
Large and beautifully printed, you could almost fall into its pages. Almost.
