It’s that time of the year when festival season kicks into gear. It’s not all muddy fields and posh tents, though, here are some of the most exciting intellectual events to stimulate body and mind


“The New York Times has proclaimed the international literary event series to be ‘the most important literary festival in the Western world’”


The 2017 UK City of Culture is Hull, England, where hundreds of cultural events will be happening throughout the year. From the 22nd to 29th July there will be a series of events called LGBT 50 – celebrating 50 years since partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales. Hull 2017 has partnered with queer collective Duckie and a host of others to create a diverse offering of films, performances, exhibitions, socials and debates focusing on LGBT+ themes, heroes and history. Things kick off with the inaugural UK Pride on Saturday 22nd July when Duckie will lead the parade through the city, finishing in Queens Gardens where Marc Almond will take over, filling the air with a back catalogue of pop hits.

About Winq

The latest issue of the newly relaunched Winq features an exclusive interview with AFC Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe, the first Premier League manager to go on the record and say he’d be happy to have a gay footballer in his team. Elsewhere, there are interviews with French film director François Ozon, award-winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon, Olympic dressage rider Spencer Wilton, and Gigi Chao, the Hong Kong lesbian whose father offered millions to any man who could turn her straight. We travel to Japan and Mexico, report on what life is like for LGBT+ people in Ghana, and explore the reasons behind the rising popularity of the far right amongst gay men in France. Packed with insightful commentary from a newly expanded panel of columnists, Winq is the journal for gay gentlemen by Attitude.
