Lost and Found: The Tale of TOMMY DORFMAN

Tommy Dorfman is a new, refreshing and brutally frank voice in queer culture. At only 25 he’s already got a tale to tell that far outshines his character, Ryan Shaver, in Netflix’s runaway hit series 13 Reasons Why. But he almost wasn’t the out and proud actor adorning magazines across the world and spreading a message of love on social media. In fact, things could have gone very differently…




There’s an unexpected visitor at Gay Times’ cover shoot with 13 Reasons Why star Tommy Dorfman.

Her name wasn’t on the list, yet here she is, making herself perfectly comfortable, getting in shots and stealing everyone’s hearts and attention.

We’re talking about Dabbs, Tommy’s dog. In fact, we could talk about Dabbs all day. But we can’t.

“Really?” Tommy laughs. “I thought this whole interview was gonna be dog-related, that’s all I was prepped for.

About Gay Times

Our July cover star Tommy Dorfman is one of the rising stars to emerge from Netflix’s controversial new series 13 Reasons Why. The 25 year old revels in the controversy, noting that the show has instigated a conversation around mental health in young people that is sorely needed. Incredibly frank, and incredibly cute, we sit down with Tommy for an exclusive, no-holds-barred shoot and interview about his husband, struggles with addiction, gender fluidity and The Spice Girls (duh). Tommy’s unique tone and personality evince a positive response to hardship within the LGBT+ community, and his use of platform to promote love and equality demonstrate his rightful place in the limelight. This responsibility that our idols and icons alike have to enact change and project positive messages cannot be understated in a world increasingly burdened by a cacophony of hatred. Elsewhere in the issue: Paul O'Grady declares war on Russia; Debbie Harry on why she considers herself 'unisex'; Geri Horner on her George Michael tribute; Jonny Pierce on his sexual awakening; Miles Yekinni on why the muslim and gay communities should be standing shoulder to shoulder; plus style, travel, culture and much more!
