This year, HUNGER turns 10 and we’re ready to celebrate in style.
For SS 21, we’re excited to announce the theme of HUNGER’s 20th issue: community. Documenting the power of people coming together – whether that’s in the name of a common cause, mutual aid and support, or a shared culture – the issue takes us from local communities in Liverpool to the stars advocating for the rights of global communities on the international stage.
To coincide with the issue announcement, we’re also revealing our first cover stars. Rising Birmingham rapper RoxXxan talks LGBTQIA+ acceptance in the music industry. Musician Stefflon Don discusses the prejudices faced by young mothers and making her way as a woman in rap.
