Our idols become part of our everyday lives, we grow up with them, and while we’ve lost a distant celebrity, it can also feel like losing a close friend. For me, that special idol was David Cassidy, undoubtedly the poster boy of the 1970s. He died late last year of multiple organ failure, aged 67, due to longterm drug and alcohol abuse.

This debate has been the soundtrack to our relationship. We both know this issue isn’t the reason we got involved in politics – give us tax reform any day. But in my first speech I defined our bond by the ring that sits on both of our left hands… they are the answer to the question we cannot ask. So, there’s only one thing left to do.

Ruggedly handsome Hector De Silva, 33, lives on a family farm near a small village in rural Spain. A humble man, he loves his dogs and his Arabian horse, and he’s a professional firefighter. In his spare time, he’s also one of the busiest porn stars in the world. He tells Victor Garcia about his life, his parents’ reaction to his career choice, and what’s on his neighbours’ Whatsapp group chat.
In the age of social media, confessional culture and high-profile sex abuse allegations, the delicate art of coming out – or not – just became even trickier. Kevin Spacey played his hand badly and was punished for it. Others have done it better. In this feature, Nick Cook asserts that there are three essential questions around coming out that the LGBTI community must grapple with and own – no matter how uncomfortable.
