FILM

The other was Beach Rats, a gritty, 16mm coming-of-ager starring a hot young Brit and featuring a potent brew of simmering sexuality and repressed rage.

About Gay Times

Call Me By Your Name is on everybody’s lips and we’re excited to deliver a world exclusive, and comprehensive, interview with the cast in the latest issue. Ahead of his critically-acclaimed Un-Royal Variety Show at the Hackney Empire, we deconstruct drag, gender and political correctness with the man who’s literally seen and done it all: Johnny Woo. In our Girls’ Club feature, acclaimed photographer Laura Lewis takes us into the heart of Tokyo’s gay district for an intimate look at one of the city’s safe spaces for its trans community. With a same-sex marriage vote tearing Australia apart, we speak to campaigners to find out why this plebiscite is about much more than getting hitched. MNEK invites us into his hit-making studio where we discuss the intersectionality of race and sexuality, self-care and the journey we go on as queer people to find out who we really are. Elsewhere in the issue, we jump into bed with Sean Teale, star of the horror-comedy Mr B&B; we dive into the troubled waters of Eliza Hittman’s Beach Rats; Sir Derek Jacobi on awards, marriage and the secrets to a happy life; Graham Patrick Martin on surviving James Franco; Kathy Griffin; Judith Light; Marc Almond; Tori Amos; plus, style, travel, opinion and much more!
