This month we profile five fascinating men who are pushing social, cultural and sexual boundaries.
Pete Buttigieg’s extraordinary run for the White House is over, but he’s paved the way for future LGBTIQ leaders. Griffin Barrows has turned the humble blowjob into an art and a successful business! Siya Khumalo is the controversial South African author of You Have To Be Gay To Know God. Sam Morris is a photo artist rewriting the rules of queer erotic art, intimacy, and social media censorship. Finally, Ben Dudman is a straight model creating sexy content for gay men without fear of being judged, in a world where masculinity exists without boundaries.
In our feature Guys… We Need To Talk we ask, why aren’t we good at discussing our mental health? How can we can take better care of ourselves and each other? And in Grinding To A Halt we find out why some gay men choosing to go app-free a decade after hook-up apps appeared on our smart phones and changed our lives.
ABBA: By The Book is an in-depth, behind-the-scenes critique on the band’s output from their folk-pop origins to their disco phase and Scandi-pop-noir final album. We speak to author Ian Cole.

There’s plenty more man-candy inside with blond hunk Roman Belize in Home Alone shot by Attila Kiss. And Ben Dudman and Vince Azzopardi get intimate for the lens of Andy Chou. “There’s a G-spot in there for a reason!” says Ben in his interview.
In regular column, Man 2 Man, Griffin Barrows reveals the secrets to delivering a truly award-winning BJ. And our adult entertainer interview is with Brit bad-boy, Drew Dixon – from drama school show-off to “big ol’ ho”!
Our Straight Mate is photographer Glenn Marsden who has been raising awareness around mental health through his Imperfectly Perfect campaign since the death of a close friend.
Plus, we preview the most binge-worthy shows, meet French gay electronica artist Dr Steevo (not a real doctor – but he’ll make you feel good), and US pop star boy, Lauv talks about mental health, Troye Sivan, and the perils of success.
