About Attitude

In a world exclusive first magazine cover shoot, Years and Years singer Olly Alexander tells us about his amazing rise to the top of the charts, his struggles with depression – and dealing with heartache as he splits up from his boyfriend, clean bandit’s Neil Amin-Smith. Inside, our review of the year looks at the most records, films and TV programmes that have shaped your year. We interview the gay owners of the controversial Cereal Killer Café, meet four amazing trans men set to redefine trans awareness and meet a man who is fighting back against the gentrification of the gay scene. Plus fashion, film, fitness and everything you’d expect from a regular issue of Attitude.
