{COLUMNIST} DANIEL BARNES

Daniel Barnes has a day job as a philosopher and art critic, but his social life is a one-man mission to explore the depths and excesses of 21st-century gay life. This column offers a glimpse into his misadventures, such as The Time I Was Famous…

The first time I visited Paris was for the final of the Euros. I didn’t have tickets to the match, but thought the atmosphere of watching it in a French pub would trump that of watching it in an English equivalent. The absurdity of this dawns on me as I sit in a café drinking a beer that – unbelievably – costs more than any beer I’ve ever had in London. Overall, Paris does not impress me much: I find it underwhelming and intolerably dirty. On the upside, it’s probably the only place in the world where I am slightly famous for, of all things, this very column. I don’t doubt the reach of Winq, but I am surprised to discover that people read my humble works in the French capital.

About Winq

The new October/November issue of Winq is stuffed with gay goodness. We’ve got an exclusive interview and cover with disco-pop queen Sophie Ellis-Bextor and a second cover featuring Ricky Martin. Sophie Ellis-Bextor is back and better than ever on new album Familia, while Puerto-Rican heartthrob Ricky Martin reminds us why he’s still the king of Latin pop (and as smouldering as ever). Elsewhere we meet the UK’s only out jockey, chat with actor Mark Gatiss, celebrate 50 years of Coming Out with author Jeffrey Weeks, and get to grips with Anohni’s politically-charged new album. Plus a bumper wedding section and Karl Lagerfeld in our business section. The wait is over - Winq is the luxury lifestyle magazine for gay men.
