We Are Gay UK


Welcome to ISSUE 23

Issue 23 cover

We chat with 80’s icons Marilyn and Boy George about how they met and their impact on the world of queer culture. We also sit down with X Factor Anton Stephans to talk dirty mags in Soho. Sheila Simmonds gives us the lowdown on her fashion empire…

Also inside: We asked our readers and writers who was the first person they came out to, what to do if you’re living with a homophobe and advice if you’ve ever had achy balls.
