SNOW AND SKY

TAKE SKIING OR SNOWBOARDING AND ADD KITE FLYING – A CHALLENGE THAT XAV JUDD COULDN’T RESIST! HE REPORTS FROM HARDANGERVIDDA PLATEAU, NORWAY.

About DNA Magazine

Let's pop our corks – this month we celebrate the 200th issue of DNA. We take a special look back at your favourite DNA covers since we launched in January 2000. Who is your favourite? On the 200th cover is sexy Frank Carter, photographed by Thomas Synnamon. And there's plenty more of Frank to see inside. We introduce our Sexiest Men Alive 2016 list – who made it this year? There are adult stars, superheroes and one sexy-as politician from Canada! Drag Race winner Bob The Drag Queen waltzes into the DNA office purse first, of course. Frank Ocean goes to number one but stays grumpy, and foxy actor Tim Draxl talks showbiz. In other photography news, don't miss Dylan Rosser's Naked In Ibiza. It's shot on Ibiza. And the men are naked. Plus we go to Pride in Tel Aviv and Stockholm, and try our hand at the extreme sport of snowkiting, and have a fling with a Catholic. Happy DNA 200!
