Hotter than HELL

Back in January 2016, we featured a promising young singer-songwriter from London in our Need to Know column. A year and a half later, thanks to big, bold, chartconquering hits like Be the One and Scared to be Lonely, she’s probably the UK’s most exciting new artist. Her generally excellent debut album, which drops at the end of June, should make this official. It was about time then that we got her back in the pages of Gay Times and get reacquainted with the pop star who’s quite literally…

“It’s been a long build-up,” Dua tells us, her speaking voice as appealingly husky as her singing one. “But I’m very happy that it’s been a long process, because I’ve now come to the point where there’s nothing about the album I would change. And regardless of whatever happens next, I’m very happy with it. It’s completely done now and I know no one can fuck with it. No one can fuck with it!”

Dua has definitely grown in confidence since the first time Gay Times spoke to her, a natural by-product, perhaps, of a hectic and successful 18 months. She’s released six singles, completed three UK headline tours, and opened for Troye Sivan at his live shows in the US.

About Gay Times

Parry Glasspool plays one of the most famous gay characters currently on British TV. He's not just easy on the eye; his role as Harry in Hollyoaks has a far-reaching and positive impact on young men around the UK, giving them the strength to come out to their families. We undress Parry for a steamy cover shoot and dive into his career, his future ambitions and what it's like kissing Kieron Richardson over and over and over again. In what is one of the most alarming recent atrocities against the LGBT+ community, we run our own investigation into what exactly is happening on the ground in Chechnya, and what you can do to help. We also speak to a Russian journalist who goes some way in defending Putin. Don't miss this explosive interview. Speaking of which: with a snap general election looming, we hear from the LGBT+ politicians who want our vote. And for our readers around the globe, the results of the elections in the UK affect you, too. Keep a close eye. In 2014, Neil Laybourn stopped Jonny Benjamin from ending his life on Waterloo Bridge. With a growing number of lives being lost to mental health battles, Neil and Jonny ask why we aren't doing more about it. Banarama on their hits, their friendship and their future; the godfathers of synthpop, Erasure, take us on a journey through every album of their illustrious 32-year career; Dua Lipa on her hard-earned and well-deserved success; and an interview with the late, great John Hurt on the eve of the release of the one of the greatest gay films of all time, The Naked Civil Servant. What to do about a friend's reckless sexual behaviour; Lady Bunny sticks her hand it in our sweetie jar of random questions (don't worry, we threw it away straight after); X Factor's Ray Quinn is this month's Gay Times Fitty; Charlie King on how to get buns of steel; cosplay with Chris Jones; 5 myths about HIV superdrug PrEP; Bill Hayes on Oliver Sacks; plus style, travel, culture and more.
