Blood for thought

A graffitied Israel tourism poster I saw on the London underground. I guess this person feels as though the Jewish state has more than a little blood on their hands and aren't too keen to visit.

Candy mag is no joke

Luis Venegas is an influential contributer to the gay community's beloved Butt magazine and has recently launched Candy: a fashion mag which celebrates drag, trannies and gender-bending culture (and not to be confused with Phillipines' highest selling teen mag of the same name).

Sadly, trying to hunt down a copy of Candy is like trying to find the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, because Venegas only publishes 1,000 copies of each issue.

Ash Stymest as Amy Winehouse:

The mood of Candy is playful and excessive, but Venegas asserts that, "When I dress up as Anna Wintour, of course it’s a parody, but it’s not a joke. And I want the clothes to look as good as possible, and the style to be as flamboyant as possible".

Here is Venegas himself as Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour (with model Andres Bourque as Vogue's red-headed creative director Grace Coddington):

Candy's most famous cover-shoot involved two of my favourite men, James Franco and photographer Terry Richardson:
