The queer mag featuring food and naked men you’ve always wanted has just arrived
A queer magazine featuring naked men and food has finally arrived.
‘Mouthfeel’, which features a combination of erotic photos of men and recipes, profiles of chefs, and pictures of food, is out now and has already sold out in print.
Created by Mac Malikowski, who washed dishes in the Momofuku Ma Peche restaurant, the magazine was inspired by his experiences of homophobia in the food industry.
Speaking to The Cut, Malikowski said: “I wasn’t even out when I was washing dishes at Bar Boulud, but I learned how to say the word faggot in, like, six different languages.”
On the magazine’s site, he said it “is not a gay men’s Good Housekeeping… I wanted to bring together the culture I live in: a combo of food, coffee, humor, hardcore, and some hot guys here and there to keep it interesting. My favorite media always carries the torch of counter-culture. And counter-culture to me has always generated the best in food, art, music and my favorite types of guys. It’s a natural equation to me.”
Issue one, which is sold out in print is available to view here.
