Issue Cover

Gay Times  |  Issue 503  

As we stride forward into a new year - and indeed, a new decade - there is plenty of vibrant, groundbreaking and diverse queer talent coming through.

For our first issue of 2020, we are celebrating all of the best queer music, film, television, drag and steps towards greater LGBTQ rights we can look forward to in the year ahead.

Our Queer Guide to 2020 is led by two next-gen stars who are breaking new ground and have become beacons of light for a new generation of LGBTQ people.

Ncuti Gatwa plays Eric Effiong in the show, an openly gay black teen who brightens up the screen during every scene he’s in. When asked why he thinks Sex Education had the impact it did, Ncuti told his co-star Connor Swindells: “I think because it has a lot of heart to it and a lot of truth to it. And like I said, it’s tackling issues that don’t commonly get tackled, and we’re starting conversations about things that get made taboo for no reason.”

Girl In Red – real name Marie Ulven – is an indie-pop artist barely two years into her career, but has amassed a passionate following. She’s the antithesis of manufactured pop artists of generations past; there’s no massive label behind her, she has full control over her music, and is very clear as to how she wants to be presented and what she wants to say. In short, she cuts through the bullshit. “I don’t have to show my songs to anyone, I don’t have someone on the sidelines saying, ‘Oh, this is sad and gay, we need a hit’,” she told us. “I don’t have anyone defining me.” It’s refreshing energy that is clearly resonating with audiences.

Since 1974, Gay Times magazine has provided the LGBTQ community with updates and information on the latest issues, news and events. It’s consistently filled with current affairs and articles from those embracing and supporting the community, along with photo shoots featuring some of the hottest celebs around.

Throughout its history, Gay Times magazine has been the platform to support and promote those who are still fighting for their rights and have allowed them space to voice their troubles. Whether you’re looking to stay up-to-date, want to learn more about who is featured on the magazine cover or just like to support the LGBTQ community, Gay Times provides it all, every month.

Enjoy a Gay Times digital magazine subscription and get all the latest exclusives wherever you are, on whatever device you have handy!
