This is the ferocity the world needs right now.

Dress, GUCCI.

Tights, WOLFORD.

Earrings, LARUCCI.



Angelica Ross is a busy woman. Not only has she been starring as Candy Ferocity in FX’s groundbreaking series Pose, she’s just jumped over to Ryan Murphy’s other successful series American Horror Story for its ninth run when it returns this autumn. Oh, and amongst all that she’s moving apartment.

“It’s a lot of things”, she says, speaking to us on the phone from Los Angeles where she’s in her car on her way to her next appointment. Angelica’s not complaining at all though, adding that she loves being “booked and busy” – and following her standout performance in Pose, we suspect it’s going to be that way for some time yet.

We are living in a golden age of television and at its centre Pose is a drama shining brighter than any other show out there right now. Centring around the ballroom scene in 1980s New York City, it assembled the largest cast and crew of trans actors, producers and writers a drama series has ever seen. In fact, almost the entirety of the actors at the forefront of the series are LGBTQ. And as the consistently positive reviews and numerous Emmy nominations suggest, putting LGBTQ people at the centre of LGBTQ narratives provides the best results.

About Gay Times

SUMMER OF PRIDE In this, the final instalment of our Summer of Pride campaign, we continue to shine with a series of names, faces and experiences from across the LGBTQ landscape – displaying once again that our differences (and often similarities) are what allow us to keep moving forward together. CHRIS APPLETON in conversation with KIM KARDASHIAN WEST Chris reveals the inspiration behind his Internet-breaking hair looks for the likes of J.Lo, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry and Kim Kardashian West, working with the biggest names in the business in the age of social media and why Chris came out as gay later into his life. And Kim reveals what happened during a photoshoot that lead to a major hair disaster. ADORE DELANO in conversation with BIANCA DEL RIO It’s from the Drag Race werkroom to our cover as we welcome Ru-Girl royalty serving up a never-before-seen lewk. Ms Adore Delano, legendary queen of Season 6 and All Stars 2, heads poolside to speak with champion, Bianca Del Rio. In a meeting sure to send Drag Race fandoms into meltdown, the real-life friends spill some serious T on life beyond the Emmy Award-winning show and if they’d ever actually make a ru-turn. NIKITA DRAGUN Self-made is a term that is overused – often incorrectly, we should add – but make no mistake honey, Nikita is self-fucking-made. The model, makeup artist and influencer initially launched her career on YouTube back in 2013 and became an A-list star on the social media platform, racking up hundreds of thousands of views for her beauty tutorials, relatable life advice and transformative videos. ⁠ In our exclusive conversation Nikita gets real about Victoria’s Secret scandal, transphobic rappers and creating a beauty empire.⁠
