This issue examines the nuances of human attachment and the liberation that comes with loving honestly, set against the social and political context of today. Artists, photographers, writers, and poets delve into the mundanity, madness, and beauty found in relationships, celebrating the unconditional love shared between families, and reiterating the joys and necessities of friendship.

Features include interviews with Help Refugees, Objectum Sexuality, and Romance FC, all seeking to inspire readers to see themselves not as isolated individuals, but people possessing power and agency as part of a bigger collective.
