UNEARTHING THE REAL GAY AGENDA

A lot can happen in 21 years. Since Attitude first opened up shop in 1994 we’ve seen the repeal of section 28, the lowering of the age of consent and the introduction of equal marriage. Incredibly, at the time of launch, Harry Judd’s pecs were a mere glimmer in his future personal trainer’s eye. We had no idea that in years to come they would feature on our front cover approximately 17,000 times, and be scorched onto our collective memory for all eternity.

About Attitude

This very special edition of Attitude is our biggest ever. It marks our first annual Pride Awards, which were created to champion the unsung heroes of the LGBT community; all of our 11 recipients grace the cover, and their extraordinary stories are told inside. They will all be honoured at an event in London, hosted by Alan Cumming, on 26 June. This issue also marks Attitude’s 21st birthday, and inside we feature 21 ordinary 21 year olds from the LGBT community who speak about what matters to them as they come of age in Britain in 2015. The issue also includes interviews with Roisin Murphy, Little Mix, Mary Lambert, Aston Merrygold, Kavana, Collabro, actor Layton Williams, and director Bill Condon; as well as features on the rebranding of Switchboard, and a look back at Queen’s iconic Live Aid performance 30 years on. All this, plus our regular fashion spreads, columnists, real life features, travel and fitness.
