The premiere issue featured William Yang, Tom Bianchi, Pierre et Gilles, Edmund White, Fiona McGregor, and Ian Roberts, and over its 12 year history featured work from top photographers and features on artists and celebrities including Robert Mapplethorpe, Leigh Bowery, Boy George, Erwin Olaf, k.d. lang, Bruce of LA, Dennis Rodman, Elton John, John Waters, Karl Lagerfield, Jeffrey Smart, Yukio Mishima, Paul Cadmas, William S.
