For eight years, Matthew Todd was the award-winning editor of Attitude magazine. In between interviewing Madonna and Prince William, he also found time to perform stand-up and write the play Blowing Whistles. And now he’s written his first book


Part memoir, part polemic, part self-help guide, Straight Jacket delves beneath the shiny façade of contemporary gay culture and asks why there are higher rates of depression, suicide and drug and alcohol abuse amongst gay men. It examines the reasons why some of us might not be as happy as we appear on the surface, then looks at how we can start moving towards healthier, more selfrespecting lives and relationships. And it issues a call-to-arms for society at large to do everything it can to protect and nurture young people, regardless of their sexual orientation.

Straight Jacket is a fascinating, oft en harrowing read but it’s ultimately uplift ing and life-affirming – and it might just be the most important book ever written about the gay experience. But it’s also ruffied a few feathers, as Todd told Winq the day aft er the book’s launch party.
