We created Erotesque because we want to create a space that won’t limit, but promote self-expression. This magazine is for all who need a cathartic space to share their scars. We will not promote art that is intended to harm or victimize others. We open this space for those whose creative efforts are labeled as taboo, weird, or unacceptable by the mainstream. Erotesque is also an LGBTQIA friendly space – we welcome all who want a home for their creativity. We will not turn anyone away because of their race, creed, religion, sexual – orientation, gender, or age. ‘Take off the masks society demands and be yourself!’, those who dare are those we open our arms to at Erotesque.
