Much of our obsession with astrology, our obsession with projections about the future, has to do with our anxiety about the present. The state of our world has queer and marginalized people uneasy. But it’s in times like these that the future doesn’t make us anxious, but instead excited to take control of manifesting the world we want to live in. Many of the themes in this issue are a projection of a better queer future: Olly Alexander’s tech-obsessed artistic practice or the visionary outlook on the modeling industry of New Pandemics. Then there are those which comment on the future, by way of looking at the past, like Jacob Tobia’s harrowing tale of navigating the gay world as a genderqueer person, Jim Parsons’ honoring of the AIDS epidemic, or Tom Capelonga’s survey of queer pop culture in the Twentieth Century.

When we take time to look at ourselves and our past, we start to pay attention to what the patterns of our life are telling us. But learning about yourself “is not the same as leading a meaningful life,” reminds astrologer Chani Nicholas. “It’s a portal into something that, if worked with, meditated on, leads to everything else.” We owe ourselves the time to evaluate the space we take up. That awareness gives us reason. It guides us forward, into everything that follows.

More than a magazine, Hello Mr. is a community of men who date men. The introduction to a new conversation. From 2012 to 2018, it amplified the voices of emerging and established artists, writers, and photographers who helped shape the change in LGBTQ media by championing more inclusive representation of queer people. Each of the ten issues reflects a range of experiences in a neatly-curated museum, carefully built to exhibit the stories of gay and queer men during its respective time of publication. From the start, Hello Mr. was a space to understand one another better through a deeper understanding of ourselves. But it became something bigger. Together, we built a platform to showcase unheard queer stories on a global stage.
