Things that we’re really loving this week. Our pick of some of the best books, beauty, style and home gadgets going.

Hideous Beauty

Ⓒ THEGAYUK / Jake Hook

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A brand new LGBT+ Young Adult mystery novel by author William Hussey. Follow the story of 17-year-old Dylan as he comes to terms of being outing at school in the most gutting way imaginable. This book covers first love, revenge porn, conservative parents, a terrible accident, sexual assault and grieving… but who brought all this pain on Dylan? We can just see Hideous Beauty cropping up as a Netflix film in the near future with its flavours of Sex Education, 13 Reasons Why and Love, Simon. Brutal but beautiful.

Available from all good book shops and digital retailers.

We love, and we mean love these felt bears from jonesyinc, what’s more, we love supporting artists and creative people, especially during this pandemic. All handmade here in the UK.

Code 22 Jock


We have to say, we love a jock, especially when it just frames the booty just right. This Jock from Code 22 features a comfortable cotton front and elastic with just enough give as not give you the love handle effect. Fetchstore online sells the Code 22 Jock, currently with a money-off offer. What’s not to love.

Superdrug is helping you get your Pride on in 2020 at home, as most Pride events have been cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It has branded some of its products with the iconic rainbow flag and teamed up with the LGBT+ helpline, Switchboard, so every item you buy from their pride range you know you’re supporting a worthwhile cause.
