meat is a London based Gay Pinup Fanzine, which celebrates (extra)ordinary guys through stylish, sexy and un-retouched portraits.
Notching up 25 issues (and 4 special editions) each a full colour 48 pages (and including a 6x4 colour print), meat has developed a cult status amongst lovers of printed-paper and hot fellas.
A quarterly party at the legendary Royal Vauxhall Tavern, launches each issue. The cream of London DJ’s including Jim Stanton (Horse Meat Disco), John Sizzle (Gay Bingo), The Sugalow Boys (Songs of Praise) and residents the meat boys attract London’s gay glitterati, bears, club kids and cubs-next-door.
meat is for everyone and singles out no one photographer, and publisher Adrian Lourie aims to photograph as many men as possible in order to fill each issue with a diverse range of amazing regular blokes in their own clothes (and out of them).
