Words Daniel Megarry Fashion Bradley McPeek / / Hair Evanie Frausto / / Makeup Nicky Andrea Props and set Design Vijat Mohindra / / Set Builder Mike Pierce Producer Leah Blewitt

If anyone embodies what it means to be a glamazon, it’s Amazon Ashley. The self-described “Queen of the Amazons” stands tall at a gorgeous 6 foot 7, and she’s used it to her advantage throughout her career as a burlesque dancer – a career that’s seen her become friends with none other than Miley Cyrus. The two went on tour together in 2014, and earlier this year reunited in Miley’s music video for female-empowerment anthem Mother’s Daughter alongside a lineup of inspiring faces including Aaron Philips, Little Miss Flint and An Acting Angel.

About Gay Times

NEW WAVE A new wave is taking over. A generation of queer identifying people are occupying mainstream spaces and using it to tell their unique story – often without limitations. And in this digital world, that equals power. From that, it develops into people like us having immediate access to content inclusive of entertainment shows, first-hand stories without your horrible corporate filer, and it be varied viewpoint. The types of stories that our friends have, but so often don’t tell. Stories that we all know exist but are hungry for more of. These stories that dive deeper into our collective history and existence to be available for everyone – and for mainstream platforms to be embracing the content on an unparalleled level – is a clear indication of progression. In this 499th issue of GAY TIMES, join us as we celebrate this new wave of visibility within many previously ignored spaces; and the people behind some of the success. JONATHAN VAN NESS Having spoken earlier in the year about their gender nonconforming identity and ready for world domination with his new book, a live world tour and a new season of Queer Eye, 2019 is the year of Jonathan Van Ness. In an exclusive conversation with Tom Rasmussen, the formidable grooming guru on the undeniable beauty of gender nonconforming people, why visibility for queer people on mainstream platforms is vital for our collective progression, and his smokey relationship with Netflix co-star Antoni Porowski. CHARLI XCX With the release of her incredible, self-titled third studio album on the horizon – which features a host of queer talent such as Pabllo Vittar, Christine and the Queens, Big Freedia, Brooke Candy and Kim Petras - Charli XCX continues to push the pop agenda forward, all while raising LGBTQ voices. For our new issue, Charli linked up with friend and fellow pop fave Troye Sivan to discuss the long-awaited album and why she wouldn't be here without support from the LGBTQ community.
