Back to Iceland... with Haukur G from Elska Reykjavík

In twelve issues of Elska, our third issue, Elska Reykjavík, is still our top seller. And not by a hair either, but by nearly 20%. That third issue was our sort of homecoming adventure, the one we shot in Reykjavík, Iceland. It's the place that inspired the name of the magazine, and a place that I hold dear to my heart.  So mixing my love of Iceland and the love people have shown to our Icelandic issue, it would seem like a no-brainer to do another issue there. But could it work? Already Reykjavík, with less than 125,000 people, is a bit small to find enough guys. It probably only worked at all because the culture is so open and LGBTQ-friendly. But what about another city? Well, Iceland's second biggest city, Akureyri, has just 18,000 people.  So as much as I'd love to publish "Elska Akureyri" or "Elska Reykjavík vol. II", I just don't know if it could be done.  But maybe one day.
