Feature by The Skinny | 30 Nov 2020
  • The Skinny December 2020

As we enter the last lap of 2020, our final issue of the year follows the usual three-way split: a look back at the events of the previous year, a look forward to Christmas, and a look sideways at some other stuff that is also occurring across Scotland's vast cultural scene.

For Christmas, we've put together an extensive gift guide featuring loads of our favourite makers, designers and independent, art-adjacent folk. If you have acquired some wealth this year and wish to spread that wealth, we have a directory of local initiatives, charities and mutual aid-type organisations who we're sure would appreciate the support. There are also four pages of cool illustrated wrapping paper inside the mag – truly, we've thought of everything.

If you need a recap of the events of This Most Cursed Year™, look no further than this month's cover illustration by the fantastic Lauren Morsley. Inside, we recap our Albums and Films of 2020, and look back on the year for the music and film scenes across the country. For the other stuff, we talk to Rod Jones about his roadie-supporting charity album, artist Nwando Ebizie discusses kink and accessiblity, Jain Edwards looks back on Spitting Image... 

All that, and a whole lot more, inside the magazine you can see in the JPEG below. 

Here's a list of the places you can find your free copy of the December 2020 edition of The Skinny in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee; we'll be updating this list as the month continues/ restrictions change etc. It's out this week (from 30 Nov), and it is, of course, free.
