Une revue de photos et d'interviews (en anglais), qui à chaque numéro fait un focus sur une ville, et part à la rencontre des mecs gay pour des portraits intimes.


This issue, our 46th adventure, was made in Madrid. This marks our very first time in Spain, truly a long time coming, where we left wondering what took us so long.

Inside the issue you'll get our classic blend of honest photography and personal storytelling, revealing the lives of a smattering of ordinary local men from the Spanish capital. As usual for Elska, the experience is quite revealing, but for this Madrid series especially, the experience is rather moving. While the bodies of our Madrileño boys are being shared, it's especially their hearts that are on full display.

Some of the stories you'll read here include: Rodrigo F C's look back at love found during a protest march, Juanmanuel E B's piece on how giving pleasure to the one he loves is what gives himself pleasure, Santiago F C's story on how helping someone else helped him and changed him forever, and Ignacio P's inspiring tale on the emancipation of his body.

‘Elska Madrid’ features ten chapters, dedicated to the following local participants: Edu R M, Santiago F C, Luis Maura, Jose C M, Juanmanuel E B, Alonso R L, Pablo S M, Javier Conde, Rodrigo F C, Jose B, and Ignacio P.

We also recommend ordering the companion zine ‘Elska Ekstra Madrid’, available separately or as part of the ‘Bundle’, to get more exclusive content. This includes five more men for whom there wasn't room in the main mag, namely Frobisher A, Guille G T, Jesus M, Kristján Óli S, and Luis G. Also included are behind the scenes tales and outtakes from the making of our Madrid series and a special feature on how we chose our cover art.
