No One Magazine is a brand-new print publication highlighting the creativity and diversity of queer culture across the world through nightlife.

Each issue will journey to a new city, acting as an “intimate record” of ever-evolving queer identity by documenting the communities and collectives that live there.

Prioritising preserving queer history and platforming unrepresented perspectives, the publication will highlight the stories of the marginalised through five key aspects of queer nightlife: Music & arts, self-expression & aesthetics, venues & spaces, physical & mental health, and night-time politics.

Available online and in print, each issue will be released annually in spring and can be pre-ordered via the magazine’s official website.

Following a launch party held in Amsterdam, the first edition ‘Issue 01: No One in Amsterdam’, will be available for shipping on April 26.

Describing a visit to Amsterdam’s queer party, Supernature, the editors revealed to Mixmag: “This vivid encounter… was perhaps when the seed for No One Magazine was initially sown”.

“There, for the first time, we saw the meaning of ‘queer’ manifest: a harmony of beauty, fierceness, individuality, and community”, they detailed.

Contextualising Amsterdam’s queer community within its historically progressive stance on social and cultural challenges, they concluded: “For our first stop, Amsterdam felt like a natural choice”.

They described the little-known pockets of queer collectives further afield such as a “thriving ballroom scene in Ho Chi Minh City” or a queer bar in Pristina that exists right in the middle of a “rowdy, macho-dominated street” with hopes to gather stories from places such as these and more.
