JE SUIS FATTY GAY

THE THIRD INSTALLMENT FROM OUR ANONYMOUS COLUMNIST ‘FATTY GAY’ WHO TAKES US ON A JOURNEY THAT BEGAN IN THE CLOSET – AND THE FRIDGE.

CONFESSIONS OF A COMPULSIVE OVEREATER

In my final year of primary school, aged 10, I had a crush on Gary Burrows, the boy I sat next to in class. I was drawn to his goofy grin and piercing blue eyes, hidden by a ridiculously floppy blonde fringe. That year, someone in class had introduced us to ‘Nervous’ – the game where you put your hand on someone’s leg, moving it slowly up toward their groin until they shout ‘nervous’ – meaning you have to stop. Of course, when I got to play it with Gary, I didn’t want to stop. My hand continued to linger on his thigh for a while after he’d called it. Feeling awkward that I’d outstayed my welcome, I sheepishly took my hand away. No doubt he sensed I was getting more out of it than he was, and it wasn’t mutual fun. And that was that. We only ever played the game once. I retreated back to crushing on him from a distance – with Peter Cetera’s Glory of Love on repeat in my head.

About Attitude

This month’s Attitude cover star is One Direction’s Liam Payne, who gives the band’s first ever solo interview, and first gay press exclusive. Shot and interviewed by Attitude, he speaks out about his relationship with the gay community, and the band’s future. We also have an interview with music’s most profound gay voice, John Grant, the King of Broadway Harvey Fierstein, alternative pop star Peaches, and young adult author James Dawson. We have a feature looking at what really happened at the Stonewall riots, and look back at Emile Griffith, the tragic gay boxing star from the 1960s. This issue also introduces a few new pages to the magazine, including a Books page, the new Readers Question spread, and the debut of columnist Jemal Polson.
