About Attitude

The annual Attitude Hot 100 is unveiled in this special issue, with a supplement full of 100 of the world’s hottest men as voted for by you! Who came out on top? Find out inside. Our cover features just a few of the gay celebrities featured on the list: Lance Bass, Michael Turchin, Charlie King, Sanjay Sood-Smith and Dino Fetscher. Inside we explore body image with a special presentation of ‘dad bods’, a report from the alternative East London pageant Mr Glory, and the unveiling of our new column about a compulsive overeater. We have interviews with X Factor star Andrea Faustini, pop stars MS MR, soul boy John Newman, performance legend Penny Arcade, and comedian Joe Lycett, who accompanies a full rundown of all things LGBT at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival. All this, plus the usual fun and frolics!
