In Santiago, Sebastián Silva used to come and go from an artist collective, a house rented from some Catholic nuns downtown. By the time he was eighteen, he was experimenting with shrooms and rapping in hippy-hop band CHC… I met Sebastián at his apartment in Brooklyn just as his most recent film, Nasty Baby, about a gay couple trying to conceive with their female BFF, hits screens.

25-year-old student Marius in Berlin (originally from Tromsø, Norway) sometimes moonlights as a mushroom forager to earn a bit of pocket money. Here he is in Schorfheide, a so-called biosphere reserve in Brandenburg, near the Polish border. Read more

Prem Sahib

It's Frieze Week in London, and BUTT's placing all bets on Prem Sahib, not that it's a competition or anything. It's just that his show at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, full of alluring surfaces and innuendos, is such a fascinating deconstruction of gay space, while his more petit, adjunct show at Southard Reid confirms Prem's status as this season's go-to guy for conceptual art.

'Every Good Boy Deserves Fruit' by Calvin Corvidian is quite possibly the first ever English as a Second Language book that you don't have to pretend to be straight to read. Calvin, who is both a teacher of other ESL teachers and lifelong student of languages, set out to write a novelette with learner levels in mind, and one directed specifically at gay guys. Read more

By Boytronic
Synthpop act Boytronic was 'founded by accident' in 1983 by an underage Holger Wobker and Peter Sawatzki in Hamburg, Germany. Their best-known hit 'You', which peaked at number ten in German charts, just got a grand re-issue treatment from Josh Cheon's Dark Entries Records. Stream the seven-minute, 12-inch remix and...

Mixtape by Chris Cruse

Interview by Danny Calvi
There hasn't been a Spotlight party since May and expectations are sky high. Spotlight (the name of the party a comment on how L.A. nightlife had sadly become all about social media hogging) has quietly charmed the pants off L.A. homos and a cute line-up of international deejay talent, dropping in after hours and staying til sunrise. So hooray that Spotlight's finally switched back on this Saturday, and that for the occasion, resident Chris Cruse has recorded a yummy hour-long mixtape — one, you could say, for the water crowd.
