On the cover this month is Olympic boxer, ballet dancer and LGBTQIA+ ally, Harry Garside. Harry talks about being an advocate for our community, women’s rights, youth support and, of course, his tattoos, mullet and nail varnish! Our exclusive shoot is both stunning and sexy and pushed Harry to his limits. “This is totally out of my comfort zone,” he said, “and I love it.”
While we’re talking about young people and mental health, this month we also celebrate the launch of new skincare brand, Unlabelled. They’re a company creating beautiful, environmentally sustainable body bars and body washes – with 100% of profits going to youth support charities and mental health help lines. The founders, husbands Chris and Anthony, want to actively combat the high rate of suicide and self-harm among LGBTQIA+ young people with this brilliant initiative, and DNA supports Unlabelled with a special subscription offer. See pages 82-83.
We don’t often associate domestic violence with the LGBTQIA+ world – and that’s a problem! So this month we bring you a feature on the subject and offer some support services. We also talk about a more civilised way to manage a divorce, and we meet a fabulous mum and find out how she helped her trans young person on their journey.
Of course, we haven’t forgotten our hot guys! Our Dare 2 Play story features has six sizzlingly sexy guys in partywear by our friends at The Pack. It’s all harnesses, jockstraps, collars, bulges, chains and other fun stuff!
Courtney Act takes to The Sydney Opera House stage, no less, and tells us about her role in the revival of Blithe Spirit, and in other entertainment news we catch up with those naughty drag DJs, Jawbreakers, and preview More Than This, the latest queer-teen high school drama on Paramount+. Our Straight Mate this month is actor Sam Ward, currently starring in An American In Paris. He tells us about his man-crush on Henry Cavill.
Plus, tons of hotties from Sydney Mardi Gras Parade. There’s heaps to read, see and do in this issue. Enjoy!
