What started out as a small, sweaty dance party in the UK has since become so much more, offering its fans parties across the globe, a line of apparel and merch and its own signature zine. Today is the premiere date for Daddy Issues #2, the brand’s second venture into print media. And Hornet is offering its readers a sneak peek into the sexy, NSFW photography of the Daddy Issues second issue.
Founded by OLLYWOOD and Borja Peña as an East London party, it now takes place in East London, Madrid, San Francisco and Los Angeles, with “pop-ups” coming soon to New York (April 29), Mexico and Chicago.
Daddy Issues launched its debut issue of the zine last November, a collaboration with photographer Christopher Sherman and Pure for Men. The 52-page, full-color, pocket-size publication was a limited-edition collectible, featuring photography of a diverse range of men (this time a collaboration with Fleshjack). And as with its first issue, the Daddy Issues second issue proves that sexy comes in all shapes, sizes and colors.
Daddy Issues #2 — this time 84 pages of 22 different photo stories from around the world — is entitled “Meet Me in the Flesh,” said to be inspired by the idea of a model and photographer meeting for the first time and sharing the experience of a nude photoshoot. Stories for the Daddy Issues second issue were shot in Australia, India, Paris, London, New York, Canada and Madrid, and it’s inspired by gentlemen’s magazines of the ’70s and ’80s
The cover star of this Daddy Issues second issue is rapper, actor and Love & Hip Hop star Milan Christopher, photographed by Josh Paul Thomas. Christopher famously posed for a sexy all-nude shoot for Paper magazine last June.
