Today is the release of our latest Elska edition, set in Cape Town, South Africa. It’s our sixteenth issue, but our first to be made in Africa, and we're excited to present it to you.
Among African cities, Cape Town is unique in its demography, being home to a majority mixed-race ('coloured' in the local parlance) population, plus large communities of blacks and whites. The fifteen men featured in the issue reflect this multiethnic make-up, and in the stories they wrote, some discuss racial issues, which are exist some twenty-five year after the end of apartheid. Cape Town is then also the gayest city on the African continent, serving as a magnet for queer people across the region, who can live freer here than anywhere else. Some of the stories also touch on this, revealing how special this place is in Africa.
Also available is our companion e-zine, Elska Ekstra Cape Town, where you’ll find behind the scenes tales, extra pics of three guys from the main mag, plus five additional guys and stories not published elsewhere.
