BRICKS is a London-based independent print publication and online platform exploring social-political issues within fashion, music, arts and culture. They've connected the best emerging creatives in fashion and art with world-class talent, as well as amplifying the voices of the new generation of climate activists, BLM organisers and trans rights activists.

Issue #13 - The Be Tender Issue

Amanda Lepore is the first BRICKS #13 The ‘Be Tender’ Issue cover star, interviewed by Bimini Bon Boulash.

The ‘Be Tender’ Issue explores love, friendship, creative collaboration and the need for compassion. As the world turns increasingly hostile, Bricks believe it's imperative to focus on the creators and creativity inspiring kindness, empathy and unity.

Inside the issue, Chloe Grace Laws examines the embarrassment of sharing your work online, Madeline Reid uncovers why kindness is taking centre-stage at Copenhagen Fashion Week, and Prishita Maheshwari-Aplin investigates the hypocrisy of creative and community care organisations and their lack of solidarity with Palestinians.

Plus, there's a takeover from the new artists of Hysterical and interviews with sculptor Leo Costelloe, musician Declan McKenna, author Jason Okundaye, photographers Sian Davey and Ezekiel, and Courrèges Artistic Director Nicolas Di Felice.
