Content highlights

  • Haiti behind the headlines. Jonas was accused of abducting children from Haiti and selling them to German men. He was vilified by the media and ended up on the cover of tabloid papers – not only once. But he was innocent. This issue’s special case study is an exclusive, in-depth interview with Jonas – as always aptly illustrated.
  • Bacha bazi special report. In three separate articles, The Lover reports on the Afghan boy cult: Bacha bazi to be banned – after Western lobbying. Boy rapes on the rise in Sweden – after the recent influx of young Afghan refugees. And a historical exposé of the tradition of dancing boys in other countries and cultures.
  • Interview with a rent boy. Kevin started selling sex to men when he was 14. The Lover has talked to him about the highs and lows of the business that has become his main career.
  • Mowgli revisited. Why Disney’s The Jungle Book has a different ending in 2016 than in 1967.
  • Plus news, manga and book reviews, and a look behind the scenes of an apparently radical magazine (this one).

The Lover does not contain any photos of frontal nudity or sex. It’s a political, historical and cultural journal, classified by the German National Library as “sociology” and “anthropology”. The Lover has been included in the collections of Schwules Museum, Berlin.
