A MARC OF Quality

We could bang on for hours about all the things that makeMarc Almonda legend. This is a man who performed a song about rent boys (Stories of Johnny) on Terry Wogan’s chat show backed by a children’s choir. But he’s also a vital recording artist who’s having his best year in, well, years. Gay Times pulls up a pew and soaks up the Marc Almond experience.


No artist gets through a 35-year music career without weathering a few ups and downs, but Marc Almond is currently enjoying a real renaissance. In March, a careerspanning compilation album featuring Soft Cell and solo highlights, Hits and Pieces, returned him to the top ten. He’s also signed a new, major label record deal with BMG, a company with form when it comes to reinvigorating what Marc calls “older artists with a good body of work and a good following of fans”. So far, it’s paying off. A few weeks after this interview, Marc’s new album Shadows and Reflections enters the charts at number 14 – his best ever position with a solo record.

About Gay Times

Call Me By Your Name is on everybody’s lips and we’re excited to deliver a world exclusive, and comprehensive, interview with the cast in the latest issue. Ahead of his critically-acclaimed Un-Royal Variety Show at the Hackney Empire, we deconstruct drag, gender and political correctness with the man who’s literally seen and done it all: Johnny Woo. In our Girls’ Club feature, acclaimed photographer Laura Lewis takes us into the heart of Tokyo’s gay district for an intimate look at one of the city’s safe spaces for its trans community. With a same-sex marriage vote tearing Australia apart, we speak to campaigners to find out why this plebiscite is about much more than getting hitched. MNEK invites us into his hit-making studio where we discuss the intersectionality of race and sexuality, self-care and the journey we go on as queer people to find out who we really are. Elsewhere in the issue, we jump into bed with Sean Teale, star of the horror-comedy Mr B&B; we dive into the troubled waters of Eliza Hittman’s Beach Rats; Sir Derek Jacobi on awards, marriage and the secrets to a happy life; Graham Patrick Martin on surviving James Franco; Kathy Griffin; Judith Light; Marc Almond; Tori Amos; plus, style, travel, opinion and much more!
