CAVE HOMO is a zine about professional skateboarder Brian Anderson. Mostly known for his international success becoming Thrasher’s Skater of the Year in 1999 and winning the World Cup of Skateboarding in Münster, Germany the same year, he has since become one of the most iconic and respected professional Skateboarders worldwide. In 2016 Brian came out as gay in a Vice documentary by Giovanni Reda, where he talks about his journey, fears, and why it was the right decision to no longer keep his sexuality a secret.
Designer Luke Williams and photographer Christian Trippe collaborated closely with Brian to create CAVE HOMO. The zine is a combination of portraits, shot in an exclusive intimate photo shoot, excerpts from Brian’s private sketchbooks and personal collection of polaroids. CAVE HOMO reveals a new and different side of Brian, outside the skateboarding world.
The show was at 208 Bowery, June 24–25 2017 in New York, New York. It featured photography from the zine and for the first time, Brian showed some of his paintings done for the project. The CAVE HOMO zine's Original Edition was released — hand-numbered and limited to 666 copies. Visitors were able to buy a copy during the 2-day event before they were distributed.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Trevor Project.
The Trevor Project was chosen by Brian and Luke because they've both been impacted by the suicide of family members. It is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people ages 13-24.
