What Is Chill? Who Is Chill?
Chill definition: Cool, tight, wicked, sweet, nice, easy-going, sex. Our def: A men's magazine that's all that and more.
Launching on the five year anniversary of my moving to Los Angeles, April 9, Chill is very symbolic to me. Moving to LA, aspiring to write, I had a lot of ups and downs along the way. A lot. So many to the point were I didn't really know what might have been next. Now here I am, true to form with life, celebrating the launch of this new publication, Chill Magazine, as editor in chief on my five-year LA-versary. Very grateful.
Chill is the premiere men’s quarterly magazine featuring authentic voices that entertain and empower lives of urban men. And I say urban on purpose. Urban is not just a group, but a lifestyle. With editorial focused on health, fitness, grooming, streetwear, sneakers, entertainment, pop culture, sex & relationships, technology, and travel, Chill is for guys of all races, ages, religions and income levels who are empowered by living label-free.
Chill is a place to find camaraderie, to source ideas and topics that appeal to our unspoken needs, a single spot for men from a variety of cultural, racial, and sexual groups to share ideas without the baggage of definitions.
Often the intersections of the Black male experience get lost, so we’re creating spaces of diversity and inclusion for Black, Latino, and other men of color as well as their friends.
Chill is breaking barriers, with editorial content that’s provocative, actionable, and informative.
Every aspect of Chill.us will be curated for the Chill man. Chill is a movement. Chill is now.
