THE GROOM’S BROTHER

THERE’S SOMETHING SEXY ABOUT THE SUITED-UP GROOM, HIS BEST MEN AND, IN THIS CASE, HIS HOT BROTHER. ANOTHER EROTICALLY CHARGED ENCOUNTER FROM JACK LADD…

THE WEDDING ISSUE

His thick, dark hair slightly messy, his tie off and tucked into his outside jacket pocket and the top two buttons of his white shirt undone, revealing a tanned, hairy chest.

Marriage. What an intriguing concept. Is it inherently human? A divine, sentient ritual or simply a ringed hand to hold along the twisting turns of life? Some fear it’s a bejewelled leach on queer identity, sucking out the colour and shrivelling us into banal heteronormativity. Or perhaps we scoff it off as entrenched, patriarchal oppression from a time when relationships were transactional and people were commodities.

Then there’s that age-old phrase: “No better way to fuck-up a relationship than marriage.” Or so says Mum.

Until recently, marriage was also a symbol of social progress. Now it’s reality: thousands of couples claiming their long-overdue and basic right. Their commitment recognised as law pushing us onward as we march loud and proud towards global acceptance.

I still don’t know how I feel about marriage. I’ve known love of different kinds, including bathing in the wonderfully warm glow of a happilymarried couple who shared their bed and lives and lessons with me.

About DNA Magazine

This month we celebrate the boys who say, “I do!” and all the fun that weddings can be. Ricky and Zak, Ivan and Chris, and Ben and Michael all share their special days with us. Our style guru makes suggestions on buying the suits, we take a trip to a bespoke ring maker, we meet wedding photographers and celebrants, plus we get a bit sexy with the groom’s hot brother! Yes campaigner, Alex Greenwich reveals some of the dirty tricks used by the No side during the postal survey and talks about how he coped with death threats and abuse. In Trouble In Paradise, we reconsider our travel plans – especially to parts of the world that are actively hostile to LGBT travellers. This important feature reveals where not to go and why. Opera singer and pop star Kyle Bielfield talks about the challenges facing creative artists, we revisit Madonna’s Ray Of Light 20 years on, and head back to the theatre for the latest gender-bending production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. We interview Tom Cocquerel about his latest role as Errol Flynn and chat with veteran actor Bruce L Hart about coming out in Hollywood before it was cool. Historically we take a look at the life of the quaintly queer Quentin Crisp as the final instalment of his autobiography hits the shelves, and we reveal some of the sordid details of The Cleveland Street Scandal – read all about the prince and the rent boys! Sexy boys in this issue include cover star Dmitry Tumash and Francesco Della Vedova. Plus, in the Digital version, you’ll find 50 extra pages of pin-ups and amazing Sydney Mardi Gras photographs.
