Issue 5 is finally here! Hate returns with The Love Issue. Come and join us on Saturday 28th July at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club with live music and DJs from 8pm-2am.
With live music from the amazing Pumarosa, a solo set from Mellah, and performances by the wonderful Jacob Slater and Scud FM, alongside surprise guests and DJs Jack Jewell, Ben Romans Hopcraft, and Ben Blackmore, it'll be a great way to celebrate the release of issue 5!
Tackling social issues is of great importance to Hate, so all proceeds raised on the night will be split equally between the charities Help Refugees and Justice4Grenfell, with the remaining ⅓ going towards keeping Hate independent.
Tickets are £6 online and £8 OTD - there’s also an option to donate more if you wish. Zines will also be available to buy exclusively on the night. Raffle tickets are included, with prizes kindly donated by our friends Bleach London, Blouse, The Nervemeter, Darren Cullen, Louise Gray, Laurence King Publishing, New River Press, Coleman Coffee, Tim Noble, The Rhythm Method, Rob Whoriskey, WAH London, Lily Vanilli, and more!
Dedicated to Hate co-founder, Scarlett Carlos Clarke and Tim Noble's new baby, this issue examines the nuances of human attachment and the liberation that comes with loving honestly.
Artists, photographers, writers, and poets delve into the mundanity, madness, and beauty found in relationships, celebrating the unconditional love shared between families, and reiterating the joys and necessities of friendship.
Features include interviews with Help Refugees, Objectum Sexuality, and Romance FC, all seeking to inspire readers to see themselves not as isolated individuals, but people possessing power and agency as part of a bigger collective.
Contextualised amongst the political landscape of today, it felt necessary to produce an issue which celebrated love, moving away from nauseating Hollywood heteronormative depictions of love, and towards an understanding of how we may impart love into the world.
The Love Issue features Vida Adamczewski, Scarlett Carlos Clarke, Racheal Crowther, Darren Cullen, Red Deer, Michael Dumontier & Neil Farber, Gayatri Ganju, Rob Greer, Jessica Hellicar, Help Refugees, Bella Howard, Cachete Jack, Georgie Jesson, Hayden Kays, Alan Kerr, Jade King, Hannah King, Mia Kingsley, George Lee, Matt Maltese, Tom Maryniak, Dan Mitchell, Objectum-Sexuality, Tristan Pigott, Romance FC, George Rouy, Heathcote Ruthven, Stephanie Sarley, Arizona Smith, Joe Sweeney, Spit Tease, Sophie Wedgwood, Demii Whiffin, and Holly Whitaker.
