Cakeboy

 

Sean is the editor and creative director of queer zine Cakeboy, founded in spring 2015. The print and digital publication has received praise from i-D, New York Magazine, Out, Dazed Digital,  Cosmopolitan, Nylon & more. 


In 2015 I successfully raised $5,000 on Kickstarter to print the second run of the magazine. Now in its fourth issue, the zine stays true to its roots with a small print run but global footprint with distributors in Paris, London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Toronto, LA, Mexico City and more.

What began as a zine inspired by a blog has evolved into a collaborative art project examining masculinity through fashion, beauty and humor.
