No One is a print publication about underground queer nightlife around the world. Each issue takes readers to a different city's queer scene, featuring communities and collectives who promote connection and identity building through electronic music. Together, these intimate records aim to create a growing time capsule of our shared, yet very own, queer identities.

With 12 stories spanning collectives, artists, organizers, historians, advocates, and community members, "Issue 01: No One in Amsterdam" invites readers to immerse themselves in the ecstatic energy, diverse expression, community love, and collective resilience that is alive today in the city's queer nightlife.

For our first stop, Amsterdam felt like a natural choice, given the gratitude we owe the city’s nightlife for shaping our understanding of what it means to be queer, and to dance as one.

With a history of progressive developments, like squatting, legalizing same-sex marriage, pioneering harm reduction practices, and integrating club culture with queer expression at institutions like Club RoXY or Club iT, Amsterdam has become a known haven for many dancing queers around the world. This appeal has also led to a dense population which incentivizes the development of residential buildings that marginalized groups cannot afford, simultaneously reducing nightlife spaces.

Like the essence of queerness, Amsterdam’s stance on queer rights and nightlife is anything but singular or linear. Communities and places that gave the city its strength are facing more disadvantages. Meanwhile, the city's renowned electronic music scene further invites the co-optation and commercialization of queer culture, at the expense of queer people.

To talk about queer nightlife in Amsterdam today is to go back to its roots, into the underground, speaking to those who are creating spaces and changes from their communities upwards. With 12 stories that span collectives, artists, organizers, historians, advocates, and community members, Issue 01 invites you to immerse in the ecstatic energy, diverse expression, ingenious entrepreneurship, community love, and collective resilience that is alive today, in Amsterdam's queer nightlife.

Viet and Jeremy Raider-Hoang are researchers and writers based in Amsterdam, specializing in anthropology, social, and cultural studies. Their work focuses on documenting queer culture, particularly within the vibrant setting of nightlife.

Viet, who grew up in Vietnam and has lived internationally, is passionate about presenting a more nuanced view of Eastern queerness and the experiences of marginalized communities, challenging dominant Western narratives. Jeremy brings his background in alternative culture and music journalism from his former platforms, CounterCultr, and cassette tape review blog, Indie Cassettes.

Together, their experience and expertise keeps them connected to the essence of underground music scenes worldwide and enables them to put their finger on the pulse of global countercultural movements. Built on this foundation, their first joint publication, No One Magazine, aims to dimensionalize and deepen the understanding of underground queer nightlife around the world.
