THE GAY MAD MEN

AFTER EIGHT YEARS AND SEVEN SEASONS, THE GROUNDBREAKING TV DRAMA MAD MEN IS REACHING ITS FINALE. WE TAKE A LOOK BACK AT THE REPRESENTATION OF GAY CHARACTERS IN THE SHOW’S PLOT, AND EXAMINE ITS APPEAL TO GAY VIEWERS

THE GAY FAREWELL

! CONTAINS SPOILERS

For a show that has lasted ten years, with famously slow-burning plot lines, it’s understandable that not everyone has followed Mad Men right to the bitter end. But, as the final half of Season Seven screens on Sky Atlantic this month, inevitable interest will be revived, and the show’s legacy assessed.

Despite the show being entrenched in the masculine world of advertising in 1960s New York, many gay viewers were attracted to the lure of Don Draper, and the stiff buttoned-up world that concealed secrets and offered sexual opportunity.

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.
