UNICORN : Issue 1 / Myth
59% of young LGB people are bi. There are more bi people than lesbians and gays combined but no-one talks to them, hears them, or gives them a platform to express their identity well.
Bi Pride UK launched the world's first bi arts & culture magazine - UNICORN.
The content in the first issue is as diverse as you can get; photography, music, illustrations, animations, poetry, articles, opinion pieces, and a cover with a ridiculous amount of bi lighting involved.
The first issue is themed around ‘Myth’. Artists from Central America, South Africa, and all over the UK took this theme and either made art with it, or talked about what ‘Myth’ means to them. An incredible article from singer and producer Nalu talked about the myth of womxnhood and exploring sexuality in LGBTQ+ RnB and Hip Hop. Blogger Finley explained the myths of being a gay transgender man, which talks about bisexuality also. Illustrator Bee Anderson offered up some awesome queer illustrations as well as a bespoke ‘Myth’ peice. And so many more.
For our first issue ‘Myth’, we put self-proclaimed ‘femme renaissance’ performer Victoria on our front cover with her amazing cover story titled, ‘Mythical bis, threesomes, and fingers in pies’. As you can guess from the title, it is an epic article on the myth of being bi, the struggles with identity, threesomes and orgies, and making awesome art along the way.
