Pocket-sized, pink and super gay, the first issue of BUTT magazine arrived in the spring of 2001, sweeping aside the clichés of the mainstream homo press. Ever since, BUTT has maintained its independence, resisting clean-cut commercialism in favor of frank Q&As, revealing photography and a delightfully direct take on sex between men. Just by being its horny, happy self, BUTT has attracted contributions from the world’s best writers and photographers. Meanwhile, frequent BUTT parties and the CLUB BUTT social network have mobilized an international army of loyal friends and fans in sexy solidarity.
The more than 90 men who appear in this girthy brick of a book include the pop stars Ed Droste, Jayne County, John Holland, Nico Muhly, Stephin Merritt and the handsome Andy Butler, the gallerist Javier Peres, the very fine artists Wolfgang Tillmans, Ryan Trecartin, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Francesco Vezzoli, Don Bachardy, AA Bronson, Paul Antonio, Roger Payne and Slava Mogutin, the talkative ballet dancer Stephen Galloway, the cinematographers and pornographers Bruce LaBruce, John Waters, Joe Gage, Rosa von Praunheim and Buck Angel a.k.a.
"the man with the pussy', the fashion designers Bernhard Willhelm, Marc Jacobs and Rick Owen, Madonna's brother Christopher, several renowned authors including Gore Vidal, Edmund White, Didier Lestrade, Dennis Cooper, Vince Aletti and the gossip journalist Perez Hilton, numerous sex professionals and porn stars such as François Sagat, Arpad Miklos, Greek Pete, Tommy DeLuca and Your Big Dick Host (not his real name), the super sexy all-American Jason Whipple and the equally hot Julian Ganio from London, the legendary Swiss photographer Walter Pfeiffer and his British colleague Dave Butt, the Canadian twins Ian and Marc Hundley, the hysterical performer Jonny Woo, the Dutch hobo Dirty Danny, a garbage man from New York City called Marcello and a house cleaner from Los Angeles called Marco.
Indeed it's a dazzling mix of men who splash their personalities all over the pages of FOREVER BUTT.
