All the fear I had about coming out was self-generated. The sky didn’t fall down. The sun came up the next morning. Eureka!"

Candy: First 'Transversal Style' Fashion Magazine Launches

Candy

Luis Venegas, the Madrid-based editor of fashion and art publications including Fanzine 137, has launched his latest.

VenegasCalled Candy, Venegas describes the publication as the first "Transversal Style" magazine: "the first fashion magazine ever completely dedicated to celebrating transvestism, transexuality, cross dressing and androgyny, in all its manifestations."

Candy's cover model is Luke Worrall.

 Writes Venegas: "Never before in history, have men and women had so many opportunities for body modification, or so many ways to change their appearance from head to toe: from the softest options like make up, to permanent transformations courtesy of the surgeons' knife. Now the 21st Century is truly underway, there's no need to justify ourselves, only the ability and need to celebrate the diversity of lifestyles and options, the freedom to choose on every level. The possibilities are as infinite as the amount of people there are in this world. CANDY is a magazine for everybody. A space for individual freedom, and a publication that pushes people to take on the persona of what they always wanted to be."

The magazine is a limited edition and 1,000 copies are available.

Check out a very cool video promo for the magazine and a shot of the cover model out of drag, AFTER THE JUMP...
