Remembering last year’s shoot with Austin W, who became the cover boy of our Elska Taipei edition. Seen here with our Taipei assistant Roman Tanitchev, evening out his backpack straps, ‘cos you know he’s meticulous like that.


Beirut… is there anybody out there?

A few months ago we met and shot this Lebanese expat for our Elska Brussels edition (and this pic is taken from Elska Ekstra Brussels). Anyway a couple weeks ago we started preparing for a future Elska issue shot in a Middle Eastern city. It is not Beirut, but everyone tells me that Lebanon would be a fantastic location for an Elska. But even if it is one of the gayest cities in the region, isn’t it still too conservative to find fifteen or so guys there to shoot, including nude, and then published in a pretty gay sort of publication? Let us know your thoughts and advice, and then maybe we’ll do Elska Beirut in 2018. 


Hey Berliners and Berlin vistors,

Elska will have a table at the Miss Read Book Fair in Berlin, 14-16 July. Come say hello, pick up a copy of one of our books, and don’t be scared to ask for an autograph on a boob or bum-cheek! 

Oh, and if you want to know the times, I’d like to know too. But based on previous years, it was open to the public 12pm – 7pm on the Saturday and Sunday only. Check for updates.
