#198 – Love Wins: Orlando
This month we look at the madness of the Orlando shooting. There are plenty of tough questions to ask around homophobia, racism, gun control and terrorism but, in the end, love wins. We celebrate the way the world stood with the LGBTI community, and the positives that have emerged from the tragedy.
We hit the road with Willie Gomez and the guys from Britney’s Vegas show in an amazing desert shoot by James Franklin. We also travel to the International Mr Leather competition in Chicago, and discover the delights and dangers of gay Cambodia.
It’s the Foxy 40-somethings vs the Slutty 20-somethings in our Man To Man feature, we touch base with UK pop star Jake Quickenden, Opera Australia’s Adrian Tamburini, find out what happened to Madonna’s Vogue boys, and enjoy Archie going gay!
We have Red Carpet Wonders from our style department, plus some wardrobe tips for Gay Ski Week. And there’s all your favourites like Dear Diva (she’ll fix ya’), Straight Mate, Nuttier, Burnttoast and Loving. And, of course, sexy boys galore!
