A magazine about identity.

A magazine about identity.

This magazine is a journey into the way we view ourselves. It is about you and where you stand in relation to everything else. It’s about identity. It will be a dangerous voyage.

Forty thousand years ago, an early human sketched the first self-portrait in a cave painting. Religions arose and explained our existence. Five hundred fifty years ago, Copernicus mathematically proved that we are not the center of the universe.

And today we have arrived at another critical stage: the evolution and proliferation of identity in the digital era. The truth is that we are in the midst of a renaissance—an identity renaissance—and it is time to embark on a journey of exploration. This magazine is your ticket.

Welcome to You.

YOU is a large-format, glossy magazine that explores human identity through a kaleidoscopic lens of art, literary longform journalism, photography, and illustration.

Our mission is to delve into race, sexuality, art, technology, and more in an attempt to see ourselves—and the world around us—with more clarity and empathy.

Volume One includes an exclusive interview with Junot Díaz, acclaimed author Roxane Gay on her favorite memoirs, stunning silhouettes from Erica Deeman, a photo essay about a group of third-gender people in Mexico, an original comic by Liana Finck, and much more.
