Gays Gone Wild

2015 WAS A BANNER year for out-and-proud music. There’s been nothing like it since 1984. In that year, a band featuring a leather queen topped the charts with a dirty ditty about orgasms (Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s Relax), a gender-bender had the biggest dance hit (Dead Or Alive’s You Spin Me Round Like A Record), and a trio of boys shouted about gay love and homophobic abuse and hit the top ten twice (Bronski Beat with Smalltown Boy and Why).

Adam Lambert live: channeling Freddie Mercury and George Michael.

Thirty years later and it’s happening all over again, with openly gay artists being not just accepted but warmly embraced by the mainstream. To see Troye Sivan, barely out of his teens, proudly declaring to DNA that his coming out was “the most important thing I’ve done in my life, publicly and personally” is era-defining. That his Wild EP went to #1 in 41 countries, got him the professional attention of the world’s biggest pop star (Taylor Swift) and accorded him a mention in Time magazine’s “Most Influential Teenagers” list only solidifies the positive impact he has made.

About DNA Magazine

DNA #192 is our Travel Issue. Our gorgeous cover model this month is Neighbours star Matt Wilson. Check out his sexy shoot with photographer Christian Scott inside. Matt also talks to DNA exclusively about playing gay on Australia’s most loved soap, his previous career as an aussieBum model and his advice for gay guys and girls struggling with their sexuality. Want more hot guys? Online favourite Cole Monahan teams up with Michael Dar for a racy shoot, Daniel Garofali gets down and dirty with James Demitri and we check out the hottest shots from fire island (no pun intended). #192 is our Travel Issue and we have plenty of amazing holiday pieces. We check out the five star living of Bali, check out the boys, beads and non-stop parties of New Orleans, hit the slopes in Queenstown for Gay Ski Week, hit the desert of Palm Springs for their White Party and hit up gay pride in Spain. We catch up with Sydney rocker Jack Colwell, find out why Adele is the biggest pop star on the planet, chat to Skyhooks legend Bob Starkie ahead of the band’s 40th anniversary and watch In The Grayscale, a new film about coming to terms with who you really are. We also check out The Drunk Shakespeare Society, the rise of the bromance, DNA’s diva and team give advice to a reader struggling to find love, check out the hottest looks from the Marco Marco fashion show and farewell 2015 with our year in review and why it was a massive year for gay music. Also our favourites are here, too, including Loving, Month in a Minute, Boys Toys and Urban Homo.
