BECAUSE I’M OLD enough to remember the unveiling of the Thriller video, Taylor Swift’s publicity swell for Bad Blood fell on largely deaf ears and blind eyes. Gigi Hadid and Ellie Goulding channelling their hitherto unseen warrior Tarantino valve didn’t do it for me. Maybe it was more than that. Every time I see Taylor Swift, I’m put in mind of a young Lisa Kudrow acting the part of a plucky country and western sensation who wakes up Kafka-esque one morning thinking ‘today’s the day I’m going to do sassy’. I won’t say that handing over the significance of that pivotal young pop totem of her era to gay men twenty or thirty years my junior isn’t something of a wrench. Nor that it’s the first time it’s happened during the last decade. But that’s getting middle-aged for you.

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.
