With a mission statement that reads "Stories of survival and freedom. No judgement.", new magazine Hycide challenges readers and viewers with captivating, raw articles, photo series and videos. Housing projects, butch lesbians called "aggressives", drug addicts, you name it: the focus is on survivors, and yet many of the features also manage to show the love and brotherhood/sisterhood still present in spite of the adversity.
Big up to founder Akintola Hanif, his talented collaborators, and creative consultant Jamel Shabazz for the powerful visuals and stories.
