No Asians: FRONT COVER Goes There Comments (0)

Next-Magazine(Image via Next)

Raymond Yeung's Front Cover film makes the front cover of Next Magazine in the form of shirtless beauty Jake Choi. Inside, Yeung says of the marginalization of Asian men in the gay community:

In the mainstream gay scene, Asian men are rarely seen as attractive or sexy. We are constantly exposed to images of male beauty which are predominantly white. Male desirability in the scene is all about bigger, hairier, taller, etc. Asian men on the other hand are often desexualized or seen as weak, camp and feminine. So in order for a gay Asian man to fit into the gay scene, he often has to distance himself from all the negative stereotypical images associated with Asian men.  But as you cannot change the color of our skin, how do you fit in? A lot of Asian men tried to fit in by dating white men. That's one way of fitting in. Because then you are not seen as an outsider.

Pabon-ass-1

Edwin Pabon's photographic obsession with the male backside makes the frontside of Next (December 19, 2014). Inside, he explains:

“I shoot homoerotic nudes, but for whatever reason, I rarely shoot frontal. Maybe I feel like it's giving too much information, or maybe it's just 'cause I like the backside better.”

I'm going with answer B.

IMG_7536Prove it!

As of midnight last night, it was exactly six years since my first post. It's been a tough thing to keep up with a dayjob and outside activities, and just when I think I might walk away, a valuable connection or interesting opportunity or a kind word comes my way. Thank you all for reading me.
