BUTT Issue 31
The sudden return of your favorite fag mag continues with a thrilling 31st issue. Comedian Jordan Firstman goes cruising with Bruce LaBruce. NYC nightlife legend Sophia Lamar talks straight with Arca. Artist Soufiane Ababri contributes his ‘bedwork’ and speaks out. Two photo series by Wolfgang Tillmans go global. BUTT no. 31’s cover star Yoni, an Ethiopian asylum seeker in England, bares all. Over the 100+ pink pages, this exciting group of contemporary queens and many others celebrate their definition of freedom big and small.
Founded in 2001, BUTT is as brash as its name suggests. Filled with explicit interviews and rose-hued photography, the bi-annual magazine informs gay lifestyle trends, inter-views creative queer and publishes editorials that are both non-sexual and deliriously horny. BUTT’s aesthetic is authentic, intimate and shameless. A global community of readers has gorwn around the subversive magazine, looking to its pages and website for creative connection and good sex. Literate yet inclusive, cute but kinky, BUTT is the subject of two anthologies with Taschen (2006, 2014), a documentary (‘After BUTT’), and countless stories from a whole generation of homos. From 2012-2021, BUTT took a hiatus, but after ten years, BUTT is back, already with two issues in 2022.
