BOY GEORGE

Adam Lambert gets up close and personal with the Culture Club icon to discuss his new Las Vegas residency and record deal, the ever-changing face of the queer scene, and his personal progressions, all on the 30th anniversary of his first Gay Times cover story.

Boy George is a man that needs no introduction. He ‘s baed two Brits, two Ivor Novello ‘s and a Grammy, sold more the 50 million records internationally and is recognised by many as a pioneer of the New Romantic movement that shaped the 70s and 80s. In recent years he ‘s appeared as a guest coach on the The Voice (both in the UK and Australia) and has signed a new record deal with BMG — his first major label signing in nearly 30 years.

But aside from his impressive trajectory of musical hits and subsequent accolades, it ‘s the man behind the music that generates the biest on-set buzz. He is undeniably a multi-faceted figure, and as we wait for him onset one Saturday afternoon in Camden, no one really knows what to expect. What really do you expect from an icon?

When we meet he ‘s calm and collected, but also charismatic, fun and easygoing. There ‘s a feeling that he ‘s reached a level of contentment in his life, and we ‘re keen to know more. Celebrating 30 years since his first Gay Times cover, Boy George sits down with his contemporary counterpart and friend, Adam Lambert, to talk Las Vegas residencies, staying grounded and his evolution from boy to man…

Adam: I hear you have a Las Vegas residency coming up? That ‘s exciting!

George: We are going to try and build a show in Vegas. I don ‘t really know whether it ‘s going to be like an extravaganza [or] whether it ‘s going to be something more of a one man show. So at the moment we are meeting with various people to sort of see what the view is. I am probably going to perform with guests. So feel free to come along!

Adam: Yes! Do you have an idea of when this will be?

George: Summer or September next year! That ‘s the dream.

Adam: Who else would you want to come in and guest with you?

About Gay Times

As the longest-running LGBTQ publication in the world, our heritage is deeply important to us. We’ve come so far as a community, and it’s important to recognise and reflect upon the people who have helped us to where we are today. While evolving with the times in order to better serve our wider community, it felt fitting that the first cover star of our rebrand should be Boy George. Not only because he himself has undergone many evolutions throughout his illustrious career, but also because we’re celebrating the 30th anniversary of his first Gay Times cover. Adam Lambert sat down with Boy George to discuss his upcoming Las Vegas residency, releasing new music with Culture Club, finding inspiration to write music, his desired collaborations and his magnum opus. They also reflect on how his life has changed since he first covered Gay Times 30 years ago. Elsewhere in the issue: Jodie Harsh on the shrinking of London’s queer nightlife; Aidan Faminoff on his coming out story; The Gay Times Honours; Henry Holland and poet Max Wallis on their upcoming collaboration plus fashion, culture and opinions from around the world. This issue also features a collection of essays and poems penned by individuals from all pockets of our community. Welcome to the new Gay Times.
