CANDY is a publication respected and appraised in the fashion and transversal communities for 11 years, while still being a niche publication with strong visuals and evolving graphics, daring casting and diverse content.
When CANDY started there was nothing like it and we are happy to have contributed to change. It is the perfect time to shed even more attention on our community now that all eyes are looking and much more open to see what we are showing.' -Luis Venegas.
Candy is Luis Venegas completely new, never-done-before kind of fashion magazine. It’s called Candy, as a playful tribute to one of the greatest transvestites ever existed, Candy Darling.
Candy is the first style magazine completely dedicated to celebrating transvestism, transexuality, cross-dressing and androgyny, in all its manifestations.
The transversal world has looked to fashion magazines for inspiration for decades, but a fashion magazine has never returned the compliment: examining the transversal world in all it’s diversity.
Candy is a magazine for everybody. A space for individual freedom, a publication that pushes people to take on the persona of what they always wanted to be.
The approach of the new magazine to this theme will be similar to the usual feeling of Luis Venegas original magazine Fanzine137, often described by journalists as unconventional, personal, elegant, unique… and hopefully surprising. Of course, Candy is also about great fun… This is supposed to be a party!
