Letter from the Editor

Naomi Campbell is on the cover of Attitude. Again. Almost 22 years after her first appearance, in the seventh issue (November 1994) of the world’s most popular gay magazine, she’s back.


Shooting Prince William two months ago was a smoother process than attempting to pin down Miss Campbell. Trying to secure time with her between her constant travels to London, New York and St Tropez is tougher than finding Pokémon in Antarctica. Seriously, it was easier to pencil in Prince William for his cover shoot than find a spare hour in Ms Campbell’s crazy schedule for this shoot. And the main reason for that? This woman does not stop working. And in the past three decades she has achieved more than most people do in an entire lifetime. Naomi has broken down racial barriers in the fashion industry. Between continuing to work as a model, her ongoing charity work and an acting career, her energy is relentless. She is a living, breathing cultural icon. When we had the opportunity to shoot another impressive glass-ceiling breaking star, she absolutely wanted to be involved. Jussie Smollett is undeniably one of the most important men in Hollywood. As an out gay black man, the importance of his casting in Empire shouldn’t be overstated. Watched by an audience of more than 15 million, Empire is the fifth most-viewed TV show in the USA. In his lead role as Jamal Lyon, Jussie is an empowering example of how times have changed and how culture is embracing other sexualities. And he’s also just filmed the latest Ridley Scott Alien film, while working on his debut album. There is nothing holding this man back.
