LA JOHNJOSEPH ON HOOK-UP DATING AS A ‘FEMME’ MAN

LA JOHNJOSEPH ON HOOK-UP DATING AS A ‘FEMME’ MAN

In a script where ‘date’, ‘fun’ and ‘meet’ read as ‘fuck’ – why this smokescreen of false modesty?

About Attitude

The new issue of Attitude features Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy on the cover, with an exclusive interview in which he discusses life since coming out. Inside we have a Valentine’s special where we look at the broad spectrum of gay relationships, plus columns and advice on dating as transgender, HIV positive, masc, femme, and everything in between. There are also interviews with British actor Douglas Booth and Australian singer songwriter Josef Salvat. Our writer Matt Cain goes home to Bolton for the city’s first Pride, and we chat to our new columnist Juno Dawson about her transition. We also have a feature on the forgotten gay language, polari.
