The world was a little less handsome when BUTT magazine shuttered ten years ago, leaving a gaping void where the provocative self-proclaimed "Magazine for Homosexuals" once was. Established in 2001, the magazine rejected a normative, commodified image of homosexuality and created a global community of like-minded readers in the process.
So a little bit of good news for once: in an exclusive partnership with Bottega Veneta, the paean to all things posterior (and beyond) is back. With their 30th issue, BUTT is relaunching with a focus on cross-community solidarity and sexual freedom, with contributions from queer artists and thinkers including Ajamu X, Sunil Gupta, Clifford Prince King, AA Bronson, Billy Vega, DJ Babynymph and more, more, more!
Bottega Veneta and BUTT will pre-launch the magazine on March 3rd in Paris with a three-day installation at Palais de Tokyo including the installation of one of Saša J. Mächtig’s K67 Kiosks. The massive 100-page issue will launch worldwide and online after, sure to be absolutely rammed full of the thought-provoking content and luscious photos we've been missing out on all these years.
