C☆NDY is Luis Venegas completely new, never-done-before kind of fashion magazine. It’s called Candy, as a playful tribute to one of the greatest transvestites ever existed, Candy Darling.
C☆NDY is the first style magazine completely dedicated to celebrating transvestism, transexuality, cross-dressing and androgyny, in all its manifestations.
The transversal world has looked to fashion magazines for inspiration for decades, but a fashion magazine has never returned the compliment: examining the transversal world in all it’s diversity.
C☆NDY is a magazine for everybody. A space for individual freedom, a publication that pushes people to take on the persona of what they always wanted to be.
The approach of the new magazine to this theme will be similar to the usual feeling of Luis Venegas original magazine Fanzine137, often described by journalists as unconventional, personal, elegant, unique… and hopefully surprising. Of course, C☆NDY is also about great fun… This is supposed to be a party!
Founded a decade ago by Luis Venegas, C*NDY is the first and only style magazine to focus on the transversal community, or transgender and gender-nonconforming/nonbinary people, transvestism, cross-dressing, drag, and androgyny. C*NDY has a devoted fan base and respect from industry leaders for showcasing the most creative and important names and talent in transversal fashion, art, and culture. This book brings together for readers the most timeless, inspirational, and aspirational pages of fashion, art, culture, makeup, glamour, icons, amazing transformations, and fun.
Jack Pierson works with a variety of media, including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, installations and film. Through exploration of celebrity, melodrama and loneliness, Pierson articulates these through an emotional narrative manifesting lost love, sexual longing, faded glamour, fleeting moments, and melancholic and sentimental reflection. His favored subjects are excerpts from his daily life: fragments of urban landscapes, still lives of ordinary objects, homoerotic nudes and evocative words worked into collages or transformed into wall mounted sculptures. Deeply rooted in Americana, the artist seeks to portray the other side of the American Dream, what he calls “the tragedy inherent in the pursuit of glamour”.
Luis Venegas is creative director, editor and publisher of Fanzine137, EY! Magateen, C★NDY, The Printed Dog and EY! Boy Collection. Based in Spain, he channels his energies into publishing his personal editorial projects and working as a freelance professional, mostly for fashion brands. An independent self-published editor, his magazines - released as limited editions - are available only in selected shops, boutiques and bookstores around the world.
