DRØME, the queer positioned media platform dedicated to the representation of alternative voices, debuts Ashton Sanders as the cover star of the third annual issue of DRØME’s print magazine. By thrusting a diverse representation of young artists and enervators into the mainstream, DRØME Magazine strives to become and embody the alternative voice of a generation.
The third issue of DRØME magazine, which is dubbed Volume III, the “Fantasy” issue, is available on newsstands now. The issue features musical wunderkind Billie Eilish, performance artist, poet, and LGBTQ rights activist Alok Vaid-Menon, fashion designer Christian Siriano, ballet dancer Michaela DePrince, and model Salem Mitchell along with cover star Ashton Sanders.
“Ashton Sanders was an obvious choice for the cover of DRØME’s third print issue. His poise and quiet intensity pull those around him in closer. He follows his gut and makes his fantasies a reality, and does so with grace and a true understanding of who he is and who he strives to be.” – Satchel Lee, DRØME Co-Creative Director
An in depth interview accompanies each editorial spread — typically conducted by DRØME Co-Creative Director’s Caroline D’Arcy Gorman and Satchel Lee (daughter of filmmaker Spike Lee). The issue is aimed at highlighting each artist’s creative journey, subtly exploring their experience with the concept of fantasy.
“Through its theme, ‘Fantasy’, DRØME Volume III explores the power of imagination and its ability to transcend our physical realm through creative thought.” -Caroline D’Arcy Gorman, DRØME founder and Co-Creative Director
DRØME Volume III retails for $25 USD at McNally Jackson, Bluestockings, Casa Magazines, Mulberry Iconic, and Bouwerie Iconic in New York City, Arcana Books on the Arts in Los Angeles, MagCulture in London and via the DRØME website, WeAreDrome.com
