The magazine published photography and interviews with renowned gay artists, and became well-known with its very first issue, which showed German fashion designer Bernhard Willhelm in nude portraits taken by Wolfgang Tillmans. Since its first issue in May 2001, BUTT has featured many gay artists such as Casey Spooner, Michael Stipe, John Waters, Heinz Peter Knes, Edmund White, Terence Koh, Walter Pfeiffer, and Slava Mogutin.
The ‘veritable home of faggotry’ returns for the autumn with its typically arousing 31st issue, themed Freedom. Inside, the pastel pink pages feature the likes of Arca, Leilah Weintraub, Max Arion, Soufiane Abarbi and more, as an ‘exciting group of contemporary queens celebrate their definition of freedom big and small.’
