About DNA Magazine

Pack your sexiest swimwear and your sunnies, this issue we're off to the magical Maldives. In DNA #210, a special travel issue, we serve up some serious beachside babeness as cover model Alexander Dorokhov shows off the latest in resort fashion while recharging his (already beautiful) body in the wellness and relaxation bliss of The Maldives' amazing spas. We get to know the charming Ibrahim in Egypt's old city of Alexandria, discover regional Australia’s hidden gay gems, head to the snow in New Zealand for gay ski week, and visit a “straight friendly” boutique hotel chain. There's also 20 Things We Love About Canada, which may make you want to visit to the land of Justins and Ryans! Your heartstrings will be strummed by 21-year-old musician Jaimie Wilson, your hips will be moved by Aussie hunk Sam Sparro and his tribute to George Michael, and you'll go weak at the knees for twinkalicious boyband GNTLMN when you heard their version of a famous Carpenters' song. Dear Diva lays down some relationship rules, and Dr Zac helps check your prostate health. For global Pride month, we wave a few of the LGBTI+ flags that celebrate the great biodiversity of our community. All that and more, this month in DNA.
