About Attitude

**Download on iPhone to experience a whole new way to read attitude on the go.

Inside, we chat to the legendary Cyndi Lauper about opening Kinky Boots in London, and musician Mykki Blanco opens up about breaking the stigma around HIV. This month is full of fashion, with spreads from Diesel, F&F and all the best watches on the market. There’s more TV too, in an interview with Andrew Haigh, director of Weekend and Looking, as well as Rebecca Root - the latest transgender actress to star on our screens. We also speak to the London man who was attacked with bleach in Vauxhall, and do a round up of our inaugural Pride Awards.
