Unlimited access to ELEMENT along with 5,000+ other digital magazines and premium stories
ELEMENT is Asia’s first inclusive men’s journal providing progressive fashion & lifestyle contents and insightful interpretations on LGBT current affairs, social issues, culture around the world and in particular, Asia. It's a bi-monthly publication with 6 issues per year for annual subscription.
In this star-spangled issue, Dutch transgender model Valentijn de Hingh bedecks our cover. Find out the story behind her dress on the cover, why the designers used flags of 71 different countries to form its train, and what those countries all have in common. (Hint: The photoshoot took place at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.) In our hall of fame, critically-acclaimed filmmaker Scud Cheng discusses the inspiration behind his wildly contentious movies, and how he uses sex and nudity to tell a story. Also, we’ve got a treat for you. In this issue’s Men We Love section, we feature not one but two hunks: Hong Kong’s Catry Lee, and US’s Kenta Seki. Under the Community Affairs section this month, we deliberate on the friction within the LGBTQ circle. Lastly, we invited the cast and crew from the short film “HURT” to be our YumYumBoys this issue. Follow them as they visit new restaurant Epiphyte, and find out what tickles their appetite.
