BeautifulMag
Since 2005, BeautifulMag, has created the opportunity for gay artists to showcase their talent. Like no other site, BeautifulMag has positioned itself as a springboard, a window displaying a constant parade of stunning photography. Sometimes emotional, sometimes provocative, sometimes sensual and sometimes just simply beautiful. Like no other site, BeautifulMag has sought to explore the deeper thoughts and meanings of the featured photographers, the concept behind the concept, the vision of the artist. And in doing so, BeautifulMag has become a concept onto itself. An establishment, unique in its kind, that has made it possible for everyone to enjoy the vision of male beauty. What makes BeautifulMag really stand out is the fact it is all created by two young men. Two young men who are passionate about male photography. And it is this passion, this drive, that makes it possible for them to do this body of work all in their own free time. Because BeautifulMag is a non-profit, voluntary site. A concept that allows them to donate the little extra that comes in through advertisment to artist support and fund raisers, such as Sidaction.fr
