Today I released the second issue of my monthly online magazine.
February. Where that very special, and increasingly corporate day brings us together incelebration of love. Pancake Day. No, wait… Valentine’s Day. Although it’s religious and spiritual history has been replaced by a more capitalist interest, Valentine’s Day means that February is all about love. And, as such, February’s issue of Feed Magazine is about love too.
It’s not just Thornton’s chocolate, Hallmark cards, and M&S flowers, love is a complex unconventional battle that spans a lifetime – if it’s real. Love comes in many forms, it does not have to be platonic, requited and hetero. Love can be between one man and his football club (p12), and a football manager (p14), one man and his AI bluetooth earpiece (p22), or the love shown towards refugees (p4).
There are many ways of showing one’s love. This issue of Feed Magazine explores love expressed through poetry (p8), through song (p20) and through a pair of of rainbow coloured laces (p14).
This issue of FEED Magazine is meant to show the diversity of love, and also the adversity of love. We hear a first hand account of a straight man being victimised for showing his support to the rainbow laces campaign – a campaign that aims to fight homophobia in sport.
A book review of Rupi Kaur’s Milk & Honey shows that Love is not sweet and soft, it’s painful and prickly.
Issue 2 features movie reviews of unconventional love stories Her, Inside Llewelyn Davies, and O.J.: Made in America.
