The new autumn issue of Winq includes a world-exclusive interview with Tales of the City author Armistead Maupin as his long-awaited memoir is published. And Booker-Prize winning author Alan Hollinghurst gives his first interview about his latest novel, The Sparsholt Affair. We also chat to Andrea Riseborough about playing Billie Jean King’s girlfriend in Hollywood movie Battle of the Sexes, and comedian Simon Amstell tells us about mixing stand-up with self-help. We look at the reality of gay life in South Africa, often held up as the most accepting country in Africa, and examine the reasons why Scandinavia has become one of the most liberal parts of the world. Plus we meet the gay man who looks after London Zoo’s gay penguins!
