Hello Mr. is a magazine about men who date men. Published twice annually, each issue chronicles everyday life and the narratives which define it through a diverse collection of essays, interviews, short stories, illustrations, and photography.
For their second issue, Hello Mr. interview gay singer-songwriter Ed Droste, who speaks about moving to Los Angeles with his husband, travel, and Grizzly Bear's creative retreats to write new music.
Withdrawing from distractions to seek clarity is a dominant theme that runs through this 160-page issue, with stories of ex-loves or ex-could-have-beens acting as reminders that separation can inspire reflection and growth.
The second issue of Hello Mr. is available now at select bookstores and retail shops worldwide and at hellomrmag.com. The iPad version is available on the iTunes App Store for $9.99. All press photos by Daniel Seung Lee.
