Hero is our antidote to the stuffy and over-thought cultural dryness that has gripped menswear publishing.
We strive to make a magazine and website that are not afraid to be visually led and arresting – have beautiful photography, amazing fashion and great, informal interviews with actors, designers and friends – and for that to be something to celebrate and revel in.
Our emphatic definition of the season is a joyously curated vision of what we love. No filler news pieces or fluff articles, just pure and bold statements. We are read by taste-making men in their twenties, thirties and forties who love fashion and culture, and want to be excited by it again.
Our approach to fashion is celebratory and zealous. Embracing the styling, foregrounding the clothes.

Troye Sivan in conversation with Jonathan Anderson, phtographed by Ryan McGinley
IT’S TROYE BABY!!! Ryan McGinley shoots Troye Sivan for this very special cover of HERO, for our 30th issue. With a new album on the very close horizon (and following the undisputed summer banger that is Rush) Troye chats to designer Jonathan Anderson – two artists changing the way we live and love – whose wings and shorts Troye wears on the cover.
Standing in solidarity with the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, our cover feature with John Boyega is silent: the shoot completed before the action began. The award-winning British actor is currently supporting those in the industry being unheard and undervalued. The message is clear: act now.
The social media megastar works those graphic angles for our 30th issue, through the futuristic lens of Olivier Rousteing’s FW23 collection for Balmain. Noah is in conversation with playwright and novelist Jeremy O. Harris.
