This month is a sexy, smart and sassy celebration of our First Nations LGBTQIA+ brothers and sisters around the world. On the cover is Willy Ward, an Indigenous Aussie with Wiradjuri, Irish and Italian heritage.
Willy, a dancer-Pilates instructor–model is back in DNA after his first appearance in our Guilty Pleasures issue, and in an 8-page fashion story for Gali Swimwear, a new Indigenous Aussie swimwear label.
We also meet the stunning Ryan Pearson from Bangarra Dance Theatre in an exquisite photography feature that captures his First Nation’s heritage and his contemporary queer identity.
Josh Taliani is the Father of Brisbane’s House Of Alexander and he tells us about the thriving Ballroom scene in Oz, and his own journey of expression and identity through dance.
Our Straight Mate is Mark Coles Smith, the hunky Indigenous star of Mystery Road: Origin who says he’s always felt comfortable with his friends in the gay world… and having a big night out in a good gay nightclub!
We get serious with Todd Fernando, Victoria’s LGBTIQ+ Commissioner, also a proud gay and Indigenous man. And chat with Katherine Wolfgramme, transgender advocate famous for her signature kaftans and controversial opinions. Plus, on the First Nations theme, it is impossible to talk about Indigenous LGBTQIA+ people without talking about colonialism. We take a deep dive.
In entertainment with have some laughs with Alan Carr, sing along with Vassy, and hear about Johnny Manuel‘s new project and his Aussie husband!
Super-hottie Nenad Vu is back to sizzle up the pages in a racy underwear fashion spread.
Plus, we have the usual columns reviewing events, music (Johnny Manuel, Yungblud and more) books (Andrew Holleran is back) and streaming (Dahmer).
And musical theatre heartthrob, Stephen Mahy gets The Last Word: “My gay mates are straighter than I am!”
