“Nightlife operates as a zone of playful exchange. It’s a space of exposure to difference that can change your take on things, or how you feel about the world. The best nights make new things possible.” – Kane Race, Archer Magazine #8
Welcome to Archer Magazine issue #8: the SPACES issue.
“Space and safety are key to human experience,” writes Archer Magazine founder Amy Middleton in her editors letter. “For people with diverse identities – the people whose voices we amplify through this publication – safe spaces can sometimes be hard to find.”
Online space. Physical space. Bodily space. Emotional space.
Nightclubs. Sharehouses. Detention centres.
This issue has it all.
Yeah, we had to put a sticker over Tilly Lawless’s nipple, because that’s the kind of world we live in.
Don’t worry, you can take it off later!
