Hello Mr.: Honesty Lasts Longest

31 oktober 2016,

Hello Mr. is simply put an honest portrayal of men who date men: not flawless but realistic, not seductive but endearing, and in no way superficial but utterly insightful. Since 2013 this magazine has proven itself to be more than flash, glitter and nudity – it’s a magazine, a community, of honest men that openly share their interests, loves, hopes and fears with the rest of the world. Though stylish, funny, and alluring in just the right places, Hello Mr. is a bi-annual magazine with a strong individuality and authenticity.

Hello Mr. is universal. It doesn’t cater to one ideal consumer, one stereotype, but attempts to interest curious and open-minded gay men from all over. And we think it succeeds. Filled with interviews, essays, fiction and visuals it’s clever – more than anything else. Carefully curated, the magazine is food for thought – sometimes easily digested, other times confusing or heart-breaking. After all, this is life, and each and every issue the magazine manages to portray the wide scope of everyday homosexuality: whether the stories are about loving moments spent with partners, success-stories in business, romantic nostalgia or illness, death and heartbreak – Hello Mr. tells all. Its name suggests just that: it speaks to you, its reader, and treats you like an everyday friend, sharing joy or, sometimes, pain.

The latest issue, issue 8, features – as always – a wide arrange of stories. On the cover is the musical Hamilton’s leading man Javier Munoz – who shares his mouth-dropping story of being HIV positive and getting diagnosed with cancer during shows. He tells of his motivation, his drive, to get back on stage – not for others, not even for himself, but for the story. To share it, to show that a story can mean something to others – even if it’s just one person. Keep going, fight, 'let ‘em see you'. Javier’s inspiring story is in theme with the rest of the issue: performing, whether on a stage, or in everyday life. So much of what we do, how we act, what we say – even sometimes, what we feel – is so often for others: our audience.

What drives a person to have something to say – to get up out of bed in the morning, go out, and tell a story? This and other questions - like what does it mean, or when is it you are writing a ‘Great, Gay Book’ - are discussed by A Little Life author Hanya Yanagihara [read an excerpt of the Dutch translation] and Garth Greenwell. In an extensive interview, performer and director Stephen Galloway tells of the obstacles in his profession, and the challenges he’s faced to define himself. Yet issue 8 holds so much more: artwork by Timju Jeannet, poetry by Ocean Vuong, a day in the life of designer Robert Storey and so on. Hello Mr. is a magazine about men who date men: a clever community that peaks interest, ingenuity and intoxication, all the while being realistic rather than flawless. After all, honesty lasts longest.
