Kai-Isaiah Jamal T Cooper discuss trans masculinity in new film Man Made

Man Made documentary t cooper trans fitcon bodybuilder

Without realising, I’ve spent my whole life looking and hoping someone like me would look back. As a black trans man, I would wait for the moments another black masc person would pass me on the underground. I’d hold on to all the butches and dykes I know from the generation before mine.

Housing horror stories that show the extent of the UK’s rent crisis

Landlord housing horror stories

For a generation regularly derided for its emotional fragility, we’ve certainly endured our fair share of hell. A decade of austerity has ushered in an era of tenant squalor, with one in three privately rented homes failing to meet decent standards, while rent prices have gone up three times faster than incomes since 2010.

Headie One

“Didn’t I tell you I’ma ball, as soon as I get home?” The lyrics to Headie One’s latest single, “Home” aren’t just a slick boast of his finances – they also shed light on how tenacious and patient the rapper has had to be to reach the level of success he has over a career that started in the early 2010s and has led to him becoming one of the major focal points of London’s drill scene today.

This general election, racism has been used as a political football

Starting a magazine has probably not been an advisable move for anyone in the last couple of decades, but somebody failed to tell Jake Applebee, the founder of Crack magazine: “We started ten years ago just after the recession. We had no money. We lived with our parents, did waitering on the side and bar work in the evenings to make it work. It was very tough and stayed that way for at least two years.”

Having pushed through those trying early years, Crack has nowhellip;

TikTok is censoring LGBTQ+, fat, and disabled users to ‘prevent bullying’


After an investigation in September revealed that TikTok’s moderation guidelines resulted in pro-LGBTQ+ content being banned from the app, the social media app is under fire again after it admitted to a set of policies that had suppressed the reach of content of users “vulnerable to cyberbullying”.
