About Elska 05 (Taipei, Taiwan):

This edition was made in Taipei, Taiwan. It's our first edition to leave Europe, and we chose what's fast becoming Asia's LGBT capital as its setting. As a country whose identity can be associated with defiance against Chinese communism, Taiwan's spirit of freedom spreads into the gay community, with one of the most vibrant and open scenes on the Asian continent. The response from Taipei's local boys was so great that this became the hardest issue to edit down.

Not to be overlooked, showcasing Asian men, especially in a way that highlights their sexuality, is still a rarity among gay publications, or among all publications for that matter. Despite the bombardment of advice that no one would buy an Asian issue, we did it anyway, because of course Elska believes that all men are beautiful, sexy, and totally lovable. "No fats, no fems, no Asians" - fuck that! 

In this issue you'll meet fourteen Taipei local boys, each contributing their own local story. Plus in our Elska Dehors series, you'll also meet two other boys from beyond Taipei. The first is by Paul Sixta, shot in Rotterdam, Netherlands; the second is by Jean-Baptiste Huong, shot in Paris. France. These are two of the most talented gay photoartists out there, and we're proud to have them in Elska.
