Pre-order our latest print, ‘The Family Issue’ – from related to chosen, we’re celebrating the partnerships, communities and collectives formed around shared values, identities and love.

This issue sees our cover stars, queer advocates and chosen family Munroe Bergdorf and Reece King, discuss rewriting gender expression in the fashion industry, queer love, and the joy of chosen families during these unusual times. ⁠Our second cover star duo features artists Chella Man and MaryV Benoit sharing how art, disability, queerness and self-love have shaped their understanding of family.⁠

Inside the issue, find interviews with photographer Nadine Ijewere and with DJs SHERELLE and NAINA of Hooversound Records. Meet the creative collectives behind London’s most exciting designer names – Saul Nash, Chet Lo, Bethany Williams and Rhi Dancey – get down with London’s newest and have your dating dilemmas fixed by this issue’s agony aunt, Self Esteem. Our Politics Editor Prishita Maheshwari-Aplin explores the reality of queer parenthood and adoption in the UK, and our Culture Editor Emily Phillips speaks to long-distance families separated due to COVID-19 on how they remain connected in different continents.

Plus, 100+ pages of fashion content, new sustainable shopping pages plus even more from our network of contributors.
