- arvida byström   Sometimes embarrassed that I am an artist but also grateful I can survive.

This is a little throwback to tumblr days 💓 when the web still felt exciting and wasn’t constantly buzzing in our pockets. Tumblr was my website of choice and I was deeply obsessed. The creatures on there I adored and got to know was a mix of feminists, artists, and queers often with a love of pastels. Pink still felt subversive and nobody thought of marketing it to millennials and fewer had heard of empowertisement. Then, in early 2013 I made this zine. It set out to portray straight men in a sexy manner and to let women play with the thought of objectifying straight cis men. Girls photographed their partners, straight boys’ submitted cute self portraits, one poem submitted was on how to corrupt the behavior of men who share and concur boob pics by collecting and sharing their chatroulette dicks. It was before girlgaze mainly referred to women photographing other women. Tumblr and desktop time internet was a really fun time for me. Thanks to everyone who made it special ❤️
