The East German secret police went to extraordinary lengths to track down people who wrote letters to the BBC during the Cold War. One of those arrested and jailed was a teenager who longed to express himself freely - and paid a high price.
It was the last day of the summer holidays. For 18-year-old Karl-Heinz Borchardt that should have meant an afternoon on a windswept Baltic beach with his girlfriend, or a few hours spent trying to catch the latest pop songs on his portable radio.
Instead his childhood came to a sudden end.
His mother hurried into his room unusually early and told him to get dressed. Five uniformed agents were waiting downstairs.
Borchardt bought himself time. "I needed time to think," he says. "It could have been for any number of reasons."
Insisting he needed a wash, he started to fling sheets of incriminating texts out of the window. He couldn't know that the secret police already had all the evidence they needed.
It was two years earlier, in September 1968, that Borchardt had written his first letter.

Drunk Magazine
Drunk Magazine is special because it's something fashion never did before. We are making what the industry uses as "trends" the norm. And when we say trends, we mean women of color, men of color, trans, afros, and different body shapes.

The industry likes to pretend that they care about us, but they only do when they're cultural appropriating or using us as a segment. WE are not a segment.

DRUNK WANTS TO NORMALIZE THE MINORITY.
