HORST #02

Being gay today – between acceptance and anti-homosexual legislation. We take a look at one social taboo, homosexuality in old age, and one sexual one: genital modification. We say goodbye to a relic of gay culture from the last generation: the porn cinema. We also met up with fashion legend and well-known Horst fan Jean Paul Gaultier, plus cult fashion designer John Varvatos. Sound designer Michel Gaubert creates the modern man’s playlist exclusively for HORST. Plus: guys in corsets, a Burger Girl, digital media for the gay community and …… penises!
