Talking identity and Inferno with the modern day New Romantics.

In a dark venue in the heart of Camden, 1500 people are patiently waiting to follow a group of six into Hell. As the crowds make their way into the Electric Ballroom one October night, they ‘re greeted by masks stained with blood adorning the walls and makeshift cotton wool entrails hanging from the ceiling.

Projected onto one of the walls there are distorted images playing on repeat, and as the lights of the venue begin to dim once the clock strikes half nine, the stage is bathed in red light and 20 unidentified naked bodies stand before the crowd smothered in body paint. If you were unaware of what was happening, you could be convinced that this was a 2017 reimagining of Dante ‘s journey to Hell and, well, that could be true.

About Gay Times

As the longest-running LGBTQ publication in the world, our heritage is deeply important to us. We’ve come so far as a community, and it’s important to recognise and reflect upon the people who have helped us to where we are today. While evolving with the times in order to better serve our wider community, it felt fitting that the first cover star of our rebrand should be Boy George. Not only because he himself has undergone many evolutions throughout his illustrious career, but also because we’re celebrating the 30th anniversary of his first Gay Times cover. Adam Lambert sat down with Boy George to discuss his upcoming Las Vegas residency, releasing new music with Culture Club, finding inspiration to write music, his desired collaborations and his magnum opus. They also reflect on how his life has changed since he first covered Gay Times 30 years ago. Elsewhere in the issue: Jodie Harsh on the shrinking of London’s queer nightlife; Aidan Faminoff on his coming out story; The Gay Times Honours; Henry Holland and poet Max Wallis on their upcoming collaboration plus fashion, culture and opinions from around the world. This issue also features a collection of essays and poems penned by individuals from all pockets of our community. Welcome to the new Gay Times.
