The second issue of the country's newest gay publication, Junior, hit newstands this week. I have not got a copy of it yet, but luckily I had an entire b&w swimsuit spread delivered to my mailbox before the issue went to print.
From what I hear, there is already much improvement on the second issue of the magazine, and the editorials I have seen so far look amazing, and much more focused than those from the first issue. I am particularly attached to the one published here since it was inspired by photographer Alair Gomes. I have been completely obsessed about Alair's work for the past year, and it seems that the magazine editors are on my same frame of mind. I was asked to write the intro to the editorial but am not sure yet if it made to print.
The pictures above were shot in Rio by Fernando Torquatto as a tribute to the late Alair Gomes. There are many other incredible edits in the new issue of Junior, and you will be getting exclusive pictures here soon. For the time being, head over to MixBrasil for a look at some pictures which did not make it into the magazine.
