Oyster Issue 113: The Yes Issue
The Yes Issue
We can’t recall a time when the word ‘yes’ has held such significance. Its permission so principal while we are acquainted with headlines and heavy details of misconduct within not just Hollywood, but within our own industry, and within the lives of almost everyone around us. And its authority actualised, as Australia fought so hard to become the 25th nation on the planet to legalise marriage between two loving people, no matter their sex. At long, long last.
So we thought about what else this short, sharp word — with its tendency to push the corners of our mouths outward and upward, motivating a smile — points to. And we landed in stories of bravery and boundaries; risk-taking and assertiveness; acceptance and success.
Featuring exclusive shoots and interviews with Teyana Taylor, Daphne Groeneveld, Marques'Almeida, Coco Gordon Moore and Alexandra Marzella, all united with narratives built around the staunchly important morality of equality and consent, we’ve shaped (and declared!) Oyster Issue 113 The Yes Issue.
