Sex sells, but does love? Gay culture is the barrage of thirst traps, hole pics, and an ongoing plea to send nudes. It is scrolling through grids of torsos and faces in an inexhaustible cache of sex and possibility. So don’t be surprised when you begin to feel as though people are disposable because there’s another hot guy around the corner. Yes you’ve got a lot of likes, but darlings, where is the love?

To counter this superficial trend of dehumanization and hyper sexualization (which we admittedly may contribute to) this week we are dedicating our MCM feature to two babes, Miguel and Justice, and what might be described as a burgeoning love story.

Rather than beginning by preaching against the insidious mores of technology, Miguel recalls the positive impact it had on him, “I’m from Westchester, New York, in a little town named Yorktown. It’s not an area that I feel shaped me at all, if anything it was the lack of people who I was able to identify with that made me reach out to form my identity. Constantly seeing queer people online, even fifty minutes away in the city, shaped how I chose to present myself growing up.”

There hadn’t been any tremendous difficulties in coming out aside from a little discomfort after an encounter with his father, “He picked me up from school, which he never did, and kept repeating ‘Miguel you can tell me,’ until I finally did tell him, but the reaction was the same as my mom’s, ‘We all knew all along.’” After that, Miguel says most of his family needed only ask his parents to which they would correctly confirm.

GAY DIVORCE NYC WORLDPRIDE2019 T-SHIRT
GUTS NYC
$30 – $35

I make the kind of T-shirts that I’d like to find in future thrift shops; a new companion with its own story from a former life.

I knew I’d have to cook something up to celebrate the monumental NYC WorldPride 2019. What I didn’t want to do was make something that felt pandering or kitschy, perhaps the more lucrative route—A route I foolishly evade at every opportunity. READ MORE

OVERSIZE “THE FACE” T-SHIRT
GUCCI
$550

As someone who is, above other forms, a print designer, I’m beginning to miss the tactile world. The smell and weight of paper. And before the “world wide web,” magazines were an instrumental way to dip into the ephemeral currents of how culture was evolving.

One of my favorite publications was The Face, a British music, fashion and culture monthly magazine published from 1980 to 2004. I trusted its journalism and respected it’s taste.  READ MORE

BRYAN PANT SU19
STÜSSY
$179.95

Can you believe the word fuccboi has been around so long that it’s already adapted a new disambiguation? Now I don’t know precisely which came first but I remember when fuccbois were just hypebeastswaiting for hours outside the Supreme store for a new drop in their Pyrex shorts.

Now I think it’s fair to still consider Supreme a fuccboi staple. People will spend 800% mark up for what is basically an iron on print t-shirt. That’s what we call (in a less gay context) dickriding. READ MORE

Us (dir. Jordan Peele)
[Digital / Blu-ray/ DVD]
$22.99

If you’re into cinema then you’ve probably heard everything there is to say about Us—Which is a lot. From funny, confusing, frustrating, stunning, to gaining masterpiece status with a 94% fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes.

This is coming after the pitch perfect release of Jordan Peele’s freshman debut Get Out, which underscored that not only are black narratives potentially lucrative, they are a genre that is implicitly rich with unmined possibility and content. READ MORE
