Asking urgent questions about drag today, Louche mag Issue 1: Beginnings and Becomings takes a critical and constructive approach to queer performance culture: its past, present and future.

Issue 1 includes: troubling the gender binary in drag and the idea of ‘kings’ and ‘queens’ as distinct categories, a Dragony Aunt column serving fresh T, and much more! We queer the archive, and draw on the legacy of drag as political action in hom(o)age to pioneers of the LGBTQI community such as Sylvia Rivera and Stormé DeLarverie, pivotal figures in the 1969 New York Stonewall riots, as well as radical 1970s UK drag troupe, Bloolips. Featuring contributions from over thirty artists, writers and illustrators.


Brother started life out as a market stall with one belief. Universal style. One collection, one vision. Not for him, not for her; for everyone. A totally genderless lifestyle brand fusing fashion, music and culture, we were born.

From Netil Market, to Club Brother to online, we’re consistently growing in a good way. We believe in challenging stereotypes, heralding the individual and blurring the lines between music, fashion and subculture.

Brother: A universal brand for universal people.
