The Pool

TEXT BY: Anna Favero // Italy/Germany || ILLUSTRATION BY: Verena Spilker // Germany

It was like diving in pools of liquid past. Suddenly I’m eighteen, an awful glass of amaro and a cigarette in my hands, listening shyly to my brother’s…
Death On The Beach 2

Death on the Beach

TEXT BY: Michael Ampersant // Netherlands || ILLUSTRATION BY: Heather Sinclair // Germany

Shy as I was, I would always make sure that I wasn’t entering the wrong cabin, or walking in on somebody forgetting to lock the door who would then be standing there with his pants half-down and his tiny dick, looking embarrassed or angry and later show up in my dreams.
Travelogue 1

Travelogue – SAFE project

TEXT AND ILLUSTRATION BY: Julia Lama // Spain

Not so long ago I traveled from Spain to Poland to take part in a youth training, where we learned how to raise awareness on sexuality (sexual education), assertiveness, feminism and equality through methodologies of non-formal education.

Time’s up

TEXT BY: Stella Andrada Kasdovasili // Hungary/Greece || ILLUSTRATION BY: Ranafarba // France

“She talked for an hour or so. Told me everything. How everyone got divided. Everything got very complicated. Identities clashed. First came the men, then gay men, then trans men, then trans women, then women, then lesbian women, bisexuals (they really had it ugly, nobody ever believed they were even a thing), asexuals, metrosexuals, non-binary, queer. Riots, protests, violence in all possible ways and forms.”

Darling Fitch

MULTIMEDIA PROJECT BY: Darling Fitch // Germany/USA

“Arising from the cesspool of Berlin’s queer party scene, Darling Fitch’s A Stranger Sound is a dark yet ultimately affirming transgender coming-of-age story.”

Louder

TEXT BY: Catriona // UK || ILLUSTRATION BY: Julia Lama // Spain

“I identify with being bisexual, as opposed to pansexual, as I see being bi as being sexually and romantically attracted both to people of a different gender to you and to people of the same gender.”

Stop Talking, Start Doing:

My experience with the eBay Startup Cup 2018
TEXT & PHOTOS: Lazar Mikov // Germany / Macedonia

“If someone told me that our team would generate revenue on the first day of our business I would have laughed in disbelief. Yet that’s exactly what happened at…”

Faces of Pride: Slavco Dimitrov | Skopje Pride Weekend

“Heteronormativity has always been also co-constituted with a class system of capitalist exploitation, racial divisions and exclusions on the grounds of ethnicity, hence fighting sexual and gender inequality must attend to all these other inequalities and systems as well.”

Faces of Pride: Jessica Lima || Ljubljana Pride

“It’s time we work together, and that we work through/despite our differences. It’s important to stay true to our political goals, but we need to be able to compromise and be able to come together as a community and do the work that needs to be done: educate, raise awareness, organise & mobilise, etc. Our egos cannot stay in the way of our work.”

Faces of Pride: Emiel Wijnberg || Maspalomas Winter Pride

“Gran Canaria and Maspalomas are one of Europe’s favourite LGTB destinations and is therefore the ideal place for our visitors to be who they are. But at the same time our tropical island is only few hundred kilometres away from countries on another continent where being who you are is neither allowed nor accepted.”

Faces Of Pride: Julia Maciocha || Warsaw Pride

“For me it’s important because it’s gathering many minorities, not only LGBTQ people. We have 13 demands and more and more people are joining the parade because they feel this is their celebration too. It’s only one day in Warsaw when people can wear rainbow, hold hands and be protected by the police. It’s like a big breath we take, that we have to hold for one year.”

The Christening

TEXT BY: Jocelyne Rigal // Ireland || ILLUSTRATION BY: Tigrowna // Germany

I broke the uneasy pause which followed, with a statement which boomed throughout the car. ‘But that’s nothing to worry about!’ I said, making a wide gesture as an invitation for tolerance.

If I Should Fall Asleep – CW: Suicide

TEXT BY: Cassia Gaden Gilmartin // Ireland || ILLUSTRATION BY: Avital Yomdin // Germany

It’s nine o’clock, evening but not yet night, and the sky is the colour of peaches. Colours, rather. A pinkish red in the high places and yellow nearer the horizon, as if the sun’s split open and leaked all over the sky.

In Ireland and in Love

TEXT BY: Jocelyne Rigal // Ireland || ILLUSTRATION BY: Lea Daniel // Ireland

How do you heal a broken heart? Mine had been reduced to shreds by Mairead, an out and proud lesbian I met at work. Mairead, all hoodies and short hair, didn’t take my feelings for her seriously because I’d had two babies
