THE THREAT OF NIGHTCLUB CLOSURES IN LONDON IS NOT SURPRISING

I’VE NEVER been a great frequenter of bars or nightclubs, gay or otherwise. I don’t know what it is about nightclubs but I can’t think of a visit to one I have truly enjoyed. Don’t get me wrong, I like to strut my funky stufi(oh yeah) with the best of them, but spending an evening with hundreds of other people without being able to talk to them because of the noise is not exactly my idea of fun.

I don’t have (and never had) the body to take my shirt o~ in public, and that now seems almost obligatory in some gay dance establishments, so spending a few hours ogling others while keeping firmly fully clothed is something I’d rather not do – there are websites for that kind of entertainment. And then you get charged an entrance fee before getting treated like a piece of meat by the security. You’re then fleeced by the pretty boy bar sta~ who charge you the price of a bottle of vodka for a shot. OK, I may exaggerate slightly but you get the point I’m making.

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.
