Micha Frazer-Carroll examines the challenges that the UK’s minoritised communities have faced over the last five years, and reports on the ways that they have come together to organise, support and uplift one another. In 2019, I worked with Huck on a series called Cut Out, which looked at the impact of nearly a decade of Tory rule on various marginalised communities. My piece in the series looked at communities of colour, finding that successive Conservative governments had lowered our living standards, contributed to dangerous housing conditions like those found at Grenfell Tower, and enacte ..read more

A new book explores the story of the private oasis for self-identified heterosexual men and their wives seeking space to explore gender variance at a time when homosexuality and crossdressing were treated as crimes and mental illnesses. While perusing a New York flea marketing in 2004, antique dealers Michel Hurst and Robert Swope happened upon a cache of photographs. Made before Stonewall, the pictures captured transgender women, men who dressed as women, and gender nonconforming people who regularly gathered at a modest upstate New York retreat known only to insiders as “Casa Susa ..read more

Missing Voices is a new series from Huck centring and platforming the voices of those ignored or left out of some of the biggest debates in politics. It is not unreasonable to say that trans rights are under intense political and societal scrutiny.

Nona Faustine embarked on a journey into the past, traveling across New York City’s five boroughs and Long Island between 2012–2021 to create the new exhibition and monograph ‘White Shoes.’ During the last wave of the Great Migration in the late 1960s, photographer Nona Faustine’s parents separately made their way from the South to Brooklyn, where they met and raised a family.

Driven by a desire to destroy and rebuild, a new generation of comic, film and music obsessives are creating twisted tributes to their favourite pop culture moments. “There’s this character in Toy Story called Sid”, says Pendragon – a Mexican-born, Cologne-based ‘bootleg toy’ maker, whose real name remains a mystery. “He’s this brilliant, edgy little kid with a black t-shirt. He destroys his toys and rips them apart and creates these mutant monsters who terrorise all the normal toy characters in the film. I am exactly like Sid.” Pendragon is at the forefront of a free-spirited DIY movement th ..read more

How a Malmö skatepark created a sense of belonging in a neglected neighbourhood. It’s an exceptionally hot summer morning in Malmö. The Swedish city is in the midst of one of its most sweltering Julys on record. Although it usually struggles to manage 18 degrees in the warmer months, this year has seen the temperature hitting over 30 most days. As a result, the streets are considerably more quiet than usual. Kroksbäck skatepark is a case in point. As the midday sun reaches its peak, the all-concrete spot feels uncharacteristically peaceful, with barely a single spot of shade in sight. Across ..read more

A new book chronicles almost half a century of the legendary east coast surfer’s diary entries. Legendary East Coast surfer Tony Caramanico first started scribbling the height of the waves he caught, wind speeds, and other musings into a diary 45 years ago. Since then he has journaled every single day. That’s over 16,000 separate entries since 1979.

For fashion photographer Shingi Rice, her camera helps level the playing field. In a world where people are told they have to look a certain way, she’s championing individuality, rebellion and self-love. As a kid growing up in Spain, there was always a camera lying around my house. When I was about 12, there was a school trip where I needed to take one with me. So I picked it up and that started the interest – but it wasn’t really serious then. As the years went by, new cameras started coming out, MySpace and Tumblr became a thing. Being surrounded by so much imagery made me want to create my ..read more
