    is it me or Elle made them more "femenine" than what they usually look like in other shoots?

    It's not going to change the way I think with respect to buying UK Elle, which has fallen off my radar to the point where I wouldn't miss it, if it stopped publishing a print edition.

    You can picture the average respective readers of UK Vogue or Bazaar, but who is this magazine aimed at? Teenagers? Twentysomethings? Older than that?

    And is this magazine trying to convince me that androgyny/gender bending/"feeling out of step with society but then developing a stronger sense of self in time" is somehow a revelation in 2021?

    Can fashion magazines stop thinking they can change the world or how we think and just focus on fashion? It is so insulting and patronizing to the reader to assume what any of our ideals are.

    I could understand it, if UK Elle is going for the age range where people are exploring and establishing their sense of identity and sexuality - but for anyone older than that, they want fashion magazines to provide time-saving inspiration on what to wear for various occasions, because these people have realised that the small contribution you can make in life comes from getting on with work and other boring things, rather than spending hours being preoccupied with forming philosophies about which direction your genitals want to go.

    Who are they? I am really confused about the cover subject this time.

    People mad because a non binary person appears on the cover of a fashion magazine is the reason why LGBTTIQ+ representation in massive media and fashion still matters.

    In principle, I agree with you -

    At the same time, people are more than their sexuality, and people are bigger than labels - even the ones they proudly choose to put on themselves. Sexual identification is just one facet of what comprises a person and what they do with their days, or achieve over their lifetime, and a magazine on the level of UK Elle is unlikely to treat the issue with much sophistication, which is why they're better off focusing more on fashion with a side-order of social analysis, rather than trying to convince us they're got revolutionary content in their cover story.

    Plus, it's possible to be LGBTTIQ+ and be an absolute bore.

    this sort of cover/ topic will always generate all sorts of thinking, so to each their own - as long as you’re not a square. and if it creates awareness and provides sensitive information, good for them/ readers.

    also, the fashion content is pretty good and ‘Scarlet Fever’ is ravishing! WOW

    I have no idea who this person is, but perhaps they're a thing in the UK?
    Anyway, the cover is bad. Why would any woman pick this up at the newsstand??

    Exactly, but this kind of topics need to be mentioned at least, for now. As part of the LGBTTIQ+ people, is hard to see my trans and nonbinary brothers and sisters being harassed by transphobes and transexclusionary movements every single day just because someone with big impact like JK Rowling keeps saying that trans/nb people are erasing women (I mean, how it's possible to erase half of the global population when trans/nb people are less than 2%?). So, I think this is a way to make a statement against those kind of speeches and give the LGBTTIQ+ readers a safe space where they are not discriminated because of their sexuality or gender id.

    Of course a fashion magazine is better focusing on fashion. If you ask me, the cover is not so good and Elle can do it better. Just look back at what they did with Indya Moore or what W Magazine did with Casil McArthur or Carmen Carrera or Dazed with Krow, Oslo Grace and Indya: a powerful statement without ignoring fashion.

    And yes, you can be LGBTTIQ+ and be an absolute bore. I can list a lot names.
