PARIS IS BURNING

KEEP YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT FOR THE TRANS COMMUNITY COMING

WHAT’S THE NEXT big thing for transgender rights? You. Yes, you dear. We’re recruiting for allies. I thought I’d try gay people first, what with you, me and the trans community being best fucking friends and all, these days. Are you up for it? You don’t have to do much. We just need to know you’ve got our back.

The welcoming in of trans people by the gay community is, in my opinion, one of the most exciting things to happen for trans progress since the Internet. Nowhere was this more apparent than at Student Pride, where I took part in a panel on media representation chaired by a certain Mr Matthew Todd. On my right sat Dustin Lance Black, the Oscar winning director of Milk, and, to my left, Dominic Treadwell Collins, executive producer at Eastenders. Dustin revealed that he was working on a film with Laverne Cox. Dominic revealed that Eastenders are looking to create a trans character. The fact is that the gay community is a lot further ahead than the trans community, and many of you have the power to help us catch up.

About Attitude

The latest Attitude is a glam rock spectacular with America’s biggest gay singer Adam Lambert on the cover, chatting about everything from working with Queen to his new solo material, and what he thinks of taking on Sam Smith in the charts and homophobia. We also have the only interview with former Westlife star Mark Feehily who opens up for the first time about his troubled dark years to re-emerge as a very different kind of solo artist. As we approach the General Election we have exclusive interviews with David Cameron, Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg, Nigel Farage, Nicola Sturgeon and Natalie Bennett, challenging them on LGBT issues and asking why they deserve your vote. We also rate the leaders’ style, and have interviews with a spread of LGBT candidates from around the country. Elsewhere in the magazine, we speak to Broadway stars Michael 'Ugly Betty' Urie and Christine Baranski, and we wave goodbye to Mad Men by talking a look back at Mad Men’s gay storylines. We also get a sneak peek inside John Whaite’s newly decorated home, and put Lulu to the How Gay quiz.
