We name our top 20 travel destinations for 2017 including the must-do circuit parties, pride events, gay ski weeks, gay rodeos and, of course, Eurovision. We take you to the ancient world of Petra and indulge in a five-star Paris experience.
The latest travel trend is “Togethering” and we tell you all about that and why the gays love it! Plus we send two princesses on a budget backpacking trip through Indonesia… without a hair dryer!
In fashion, we check out the latest from Marco Marco and the super sexy David John Craig bares all including his cheeky side in a photo shoot by the talented Chan Andre.
Meet Chansey Paech, Australia’s first out Indigenous MP in parliament, our fitness guru Justin gives you tips on how to become more f*ckable, and we take a look at Roy Cohn, the closeted gay, right-wing lawyer who taught Donald Trump all the tricks that would help him lie, intimidate and bully his way into the US Presidency.
On the cover, Calum Winsor, our favourite golden boy, returns to our pages to claim the cover.
