Elska Magazine, known for its commitment to amplifying diverse voices and celebrating the human form, turns its lens to the enchanting city of Tbilisi in its latest issue, aptly titled ‘Elska Tbilisi.’ This edition takes readers on a journey to a place that, despite its rich cultural heritage, remains relatively uncharted in the wider world.
Liam Campbell, the Editor and Chief Photographer of Elska, shares his vision: “I imagine that making a gay publication on Tbilisi, a place few in the wider world know much about, might seem like an odd choice, but it’s a city I have always wanted to feature for this project, one of my top five favorite cities in the world.” His dedication to showcasing the beauty of Tbilisi and its LGBTQ community is unwavering.
In a country where LGBTQ life is often fraught with challenges, ‘Elska Tbilisi’ provides a platform for 15 local men to share their personal stories, moods, styles, and, at times, their naked bodies. Through intimate photography captured in their homes and on the streets of Tbilisi, these men offer a glimpse into their lives, giving voice to the vibrant LGBTQ community in Georgia.
Elska Magazine’s commitment to diversity and inclusivity shines through in this issue, highlighting the resilience and strength of individuals who proudly embrace their identities in a society that may not always fully understand or accept them.
