Playboy and Sevens Foundation have entered into a unique collaboration to create an NFT series in four parts, which will focus on speech, gender, sexuality, and other core Playboy editorial themes. The series will help support digital artists by letting them mint and sell their work through a new grant, facilitated by Sevens.
Pushing boundaries to embrace new art forms and celebrate diversity
The Art of Gender and Sexuality, which is the first instalment of the series, encourages artists to celebrate the power of diverse identities. Playboy was the first major erotic publication to put a trans person on its cover. Always pushing boundaries, the magazine is ready to embrace new forms of art and technology such as NFTs, as they have done with their recent debuts of the Miami Beach Art Collection and Liquid Summer Collection.

Liz Suman, Vice President of Art Curation and Editorial at Playboy and member of Playboy’s curatorial panel, said:
“As a woman working at Playboy, and as a female curator working in the digital art space, one of the things I’m most excited about is the opportunity to build on that legacy by working with more female artists and diverse voices. I can’t name an organization more dedicated to amplifying underrepresented digital artists than Sevens.”
Tim Kang, Sevens Developer, added on the collaboration:
“Sevens Foundation works to ensure social issues amidst new digital opportunities remain integral and fair for all participants of the global promise of blockchain. It is an important goal for us to elevate women and LGBTQ+ voices, and it is critical to do so within this burgeoning industry ensuring past cultures of cis-male pervasiveness is broken and creating healthy equality and understanding across a global scale is achieved.”
Playboy will mint NFT artworks for free
The submission period begins today and runs for one month. Playboy will mint and return artists’ works as an NFT. Neither Sevens nor Playboy will receive any profit. The fifty selected candidates’ works will be displayed at a Playboy x Sevens activation during the NFT NYC conference this November.
