MODERN LOVE

Landlocked and lovely; that’s Austria. A country of modest proportions, neatly wrapped in a package that offers something for almost every visitor: music, Mozart, mountains, strudel, lakes, cakes, castles and fine museums, both traditional and contemporary.

Vienna is the cherry atop the delicious Austrian cake. The capital, the Grand Dame of the country, is big, bold, hip and a work of exquisite art herself. Despite its impeccable cultural history, Vienna is a city that has not rested on its laurels. She regularly reinvents herself and this extends to becoming an extremely welcoming city for the LGBTI traveller. Perennially gay and lesbian friendly, with parties and weekend festivals, being out and proud is de rigueur. Vienna is one of the most popular LGBTI honeymoon destinations.

About DNA Magazine

What will we be watching, dancing to, wearing, eating and slipping our fingers into in 2018? Our trend spotters preview all that’s new and exciting for the coming year. Speaking of big things… meet Luke Pearce, our cover model. The New York-based model/personal trainer loves sport, the outdoors and helping others achieve their best in the gym. We have 8 stunning pages of Luke in this issue by photographer Rick Stockwell. What’s it like being a webcam performer with thousands of fans around the world who regularly log-in to watch you, er, log off? We meet one of the web’s most popular “sexhibitionists” who claims he’s really very shy. You be the judge. Some people might say Star Trek has always had a queer-ish bent but now it has a gay male couple as leading characters. We find out what changed in the Trek universe after all these years that has allowed some long-overdue LGBTI content. Hector De Silva – you may know that name from several of the world’s leading adult websites, but away from the bump and grind of his “day job”, Hector is a humble Spanish farmer and fire-fighter. We visit him on his family farm and find out how his family and neighbours feel about living with an internationally famous gay porn star. Coming out – if you’re a celebrity there’s a right way and a wrong way to come out. Kevin Spacey did it wrong, but there are plenty of better examples. We look at some of them and face some awkward questions head on. Plus, win a gay honeymoon in Vienna, Austria. Find out what Courtney Act thinks of some of her Drag Race co-stars, check out Gay Chef, Jordan Bruno’s avocado smash, meet International Mr Leather’s first Muslim contestant and more!

This debate has been the soundtrack to our relationship. We both know this issue isn’t the reason we got involved in politics – give us tax reform any day. But in my first speech I defined our bond by the ring that sits on both of our left hands… they are the answer to the question we cannot ask. So, there’s only one thing left to do.

HIS CAM4 NAME IS ZARSYDNEYGAY, HE’S AT HOME WACKING OFF WITH THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WORLDWIDE WATCHING BUT, HE TELLS DNA, HE’S A LITTLE BIT SHY!
SELF-CONFESSED TREKKIE, XAV RUDD, CHEERS ON THE GAY CHARACTERS WHO HAVE FINALLY MADE IT INTO THE STAR TREK FRANCHISE, AND LOOKS AT THE SHOW’S REFLECTION OF IDENTITY POLITICS.
Ruggedly handsome Hector De Silva, 33, lives on a family farm near a small village in rural Spain. A humble man, he loves his dogs and his Arabian horse, and he’s a professional firefighter. In his spare time, he’s also one of the busiest porn stars in the world. He tells Victor Garcia about his life, his parents’ reaction to his career choice, and what’s on his neighbours’ Whatsapp group chat.
In the age of social media, confessional culture and high-profile sex abuse allegations, the delicate art of coming out – or not – just became even trickier. Kevin Spacey played his hand badly and was punished for it. Others have done it better. In this feature, Nick Cook asserts that there are three essential questions around coming out that the LGBTI community must grapple with and own – no matter how uncomfortable.
Vienna is an old city that embraces the new. Opera on one side of the street, cutting-edge contemporary art on the other. It’s an exhilarating dichotomy, writes Bev Malzard, and at the end of the day the coffee and cakes a brilliant, too!
