Sky Ferreira leads a group of eight unconventional men and women who aren’t afraid to break the rules in Playboy’s first-ever “Renegades” issue. Among the cultural trendsetters are retired pro skateboarder Jason Dill on surviving near-death; Stoya, a ballerina turned porn star; Against Me! founder Laura Jane Grace who reveals the challenges of being transgender in punk rock; comedian and Fresh Off the Boat writer Ali Wong on motherhood; Paul Beatty, one of America’s most daring writers who’s known to push societal boundaries; Noor Tagouri, a 22-year-old Hijabi Muslim activist and journalist determined to break down stereotypes; and Sean Murray, founder of Hello Games and its ambitious video game No Man’s Sky, that delivers on the promise of endless exploration and adventure.
The October 2016 issue also features an in-depth, 8-page conversation with the self-proclaimed “comedic rock star,” Kevin Hart. Taking a break from world domination, Hart sat down with Playboy and opened up about his relationship with his father and shared his thoughts on controversial figures such as Donald Trump and Bill Cosby. Hart also discusses his Kevmoji app, currently the #1 downloaded app on iTunes, along with his record-breaking global comedy tour, upcoming tech deals, movies, endorsements and more.
Additional highlights include: 20Q with Rachel Bloom, No Filter with Sharna Burgess, Francofile with Maggie Gyllenhaal, Miss October Allie Silva and more.
