We are your new Headmasters and we are here to teach you a lesson. Lots of lessons, actually: social studies lessons, language arts lessons, phys ed lessons, science lessons and art lessons. If you're lucky there may even be spelling and handwriting lessons. And we are not afraid to assign homework.

We, your Headmasters, are smart and sexy gay men, so each limited edition of Headmaster magazine will be smart and sexy as well. Headmaster will feature clever writing, provocative photography and mind-blowingly nifty art projects. Some of it may be funny. You never know.

We are a collective with backgrounds in art, design and writing. Your Headmasters are dedicated print enthusiasts and magazine aficionados. We are also all manly man-loving men. Readers of Headmaster will likely notice a great many manly images within the magazine.

Money raised for this frankly rather queer project will go directly towards printing and distribution costs. Any money raised beyond our goal will help us pay contributors and make our magazine bigger (more pages!) and fancier (fancier pages!) Raising above our goal will also allow us to get cracking on Issue #2, which will surely feature fun and thrilling new surprises.
