Elska Berlin is our second issue, made in one of the world's gay meccas. It quickly too became one of our most popular issues ever, and after selling out some time ago (and receiving loads of requests to make more), we finally decided to reissue it. However, we didn't do a simple reprint. We decided to redo the issue completely, going into our Berlin archives and selecting each image and story from scratch. The result is over 50% previously unpublished images, making the new Elska Berlin attractive for old and new customers alike. We also chose to redo the print version in our new bigger and lovelier format, making it all the more attractive.

The issue is divided into twelve chapters, each dedicated to one particular man who the Elska team met on their trip to Berlin. Each chapter includes a dozen or so images, taken of the subject both in the city streets and at home, dressed in their own style or often nude. Each chapter also includes a personal story contributed by each guy, sort of like an intimate conversation or diary entry. The goal of the magazine is to act as a sort of virtual transport to the city, inviting readers to meet a selection of local guys, get to know them, and fall in love with them and the city.

Features images of / stories from: Bastian C, Marc Y, Diego S, Luca T, Roman T, Emil T, Colin C, Falko D, David P, Heiko M, Matija M, and Raphael K.

We also recommend ordering Elska Ekstra Berlin, available separately, for loads of outtakes, a behind the scenes diary of our Berlin trip, and to meet the following additional men: Shir N, Luca T, Alessandro G, Adam G, Ticha T, and Max E.

The photography of ‘Elska Berlin’ and ‘Elska Ekstra Berlin’ includes work by Liam Campbell, Fedya Ili, Jonathan Lemieux, and Andriy Melnyk. The stories are written by the subjects themselves.

Welcome to Elska, a project about sharing the bodies and voices of guys we meet all over the world. Referred to by The Advocate as ‘probably the nicest, most sincere magazine to have ever been created’ and also described as ‘part intellectual queer pin-up mag and part sexy anthropology journal’, you won’t find celebrity gossip, models, or lifestyle tips here. Instead come travel along with us get to know a diverse cross-section of queer boys everywhere through intimate photography and personal storytelling
