Bizarre 205, September 2013

On sale 30 July

As always, the latest issue of Bizarre is a love letter to the British alternative culture scene, featuring dozens of incredible contributions from our readers such as photographs of their tattoos, examples of original artwork, and a variety of stunning amateur shoots that would put many professional photographers to shame.

Bizarre issue 205 also sees the return of The Viper’€™s Nest; a collection of daring photographs sent in my our male readers who want to pursue a career in alt.modelling. And despite the fact that Bizarre has come under attack in recent weeks by campaigners who want to prevent retailers from stocking the magazine – and who’ve clearly never opened an issue of Bizarre –€“ we’™re still proud to provide a platform for anyone who feels alienated by mainstream culture to have their voice heard.

An exclusive interview with legendary model Masuimi Max, a feature on the rock’€™n’€™roll biker subculture that’s still going strong after over 50 years, and a chat with plus-size model April Flores also help make issue 205 one of our most important, and proof that Bizarre is still the beating heart of British alternative culture.
