Elska Magazine, a publication dedicated to sharing the bodies and voices of diverse men from all over the world, has put the spotlight on the gay men of Haifa, Israel for its latest issue, Elska Haifa.
This issue was made in beautiful Haifa, Israel’s most diverse big city. Inside the bookazine you’ll get to intimately know a dozen local men from the local LGBTQ community, comprising representatives from the city's sizeable Jewish, Arab, and post-Soviet cohorts, presented through a combination of intimate photography and honest storytelling.
Each of the participants was shot in their city's streets and many too were photographed in their own homes, dressed in their own style – and sometimes not dressed at all. Each also wrote their own text, printed here in Arabic, Hebrew, or Russian (all followed by English translations, where applicable). Topics range from tales of love and loss, of seeking self-acceptance, of searching for a better and freer life, of ‘sexcapades', and of what life is like for a queer person living in this place.
Elska Haifa features twelve chapters, dedicated to the following local participants: George N, Semion K, Mohammad R, Boris L, Uri K, Yehonathan B Y, Guy L, Dia H, Eyal R, Dotan M, Alex P, Amir S.
