We’ve been following Candy Magazine since it’s debut issue, since when Luke Worrall appeared on the cover as the beautiful and mesmerising Lucy Worrall. It’s a magazine I personally hold close to my heart, and a publication that really needs to be talked about.
The magazine is a pioneer, a trail blazer, what founder Luis Venegas has created is without doubt, a real genuine game changer within not only the industry, but society. It is beyond fantastic to have a positive force dedicated to gender, especially within this moment, a time where change can be implemented, where difference is truly fought for.
We have been speaking about the lack of Gender role models in mainstream media over the last few weeks. Well, perhaps this is a beacon, a gleaming light, not in the form of a person, but the form of an entity, a movement, something that can be so much stronger than one human being, a symbol of change.
With only 1,000 copies an issue the reach maybe small currently, but as we all know, in 2012 it’s no longer about reach, it’s about influence.
We can truly say that Candy Magazine’s genuine passion for the beauty and mystery of gender and androgyny, their love for this incredible journey influences far beyond each copy of the magazine.
Times are changing, and it’s movements such as this, that can really make a difference.
