About this project

Phile Magazine is a biannual publication which investigates sexual subcultures, both obscure and well known, from a sociological point of view. 

Issue One will feature 130 pages of cerebral content and thought provoking imagery. Our contributors range in ethnic background as well as gender and sexual identities. It contains articles, interviews, photo essays and creative writing which explores how those who resist normative societal structures create space to express their truest desires.

The publication combines elements of an academic journal, an art book and an erotic magazine. With Phile, we aim to encourage a more empathetic understanding towards people and communities who live outside of normative or binary structures.
