SJMC Graduates Develop New LGBTQ Magazine ‘BRUNCHCLUB’

Check out this new edition: Two of Texas State’s SJMC graduates have been selected to contribute to the magazine ‘Hello Mr.’ as part of a residency called ‘The Issues.’ Ernesto Macias and Colby Anderson are 24-year-old graduates from the SJMC, now both dedicated to their creation, ‘BRUNCHCLUB’, an editorial that focuses on the quest for truth, culture, and diversity within the LGBTQ community.

The objective of ‘The Issues,’ which will feature Anderson’s and Macias’ work, is to promote and feature stories of LGBT individuals that cannot be found in mainstream media. ‘Hello Mr.’ will be in a partnership of sorts with these creators, propelling them into a larger spotlight by offering them experience, mentorship, and a vast readership. According to the publication, ‘Hello Mr.‘ is a magazine about men who date men.

According to the magazine’s Kickstarter page, “We are a collective of artists and writers that reflect the diverse perspective of the LGBTQ community. When we launched in 2012, we sought to create a platform for emerging talent and unheard voices, and add to the momentum for more inclusive representation in media.”

While Macias and Anderson are proud and excited at the opportunity of their residency, the brand they have built in New York City thus far is beyond impressive. The two note their issue will include, “poetry from the West Texan desert, a day-in-the-life account of a gender queer babe in Ohio, an exploration of the Latinx body in nature, a profile on Costa Rican model, activist, and artist Hazkel, and more.”

The two graduates are now navigating a Kickstarter campaign to gather funds for ‘The Issues’, an endeavor that will help raise awareness for the new stories and promote change within the community.

According to the Kickstarter page, “The funds raised will support the production costs of ‘BRUNCHCLUB‘ and allow it to be distributed inside the next issue of ‘Hello Mr.’ later this summer.”
