Jamie Tabberer, web reporter As well as countless depressing Jeff Buckley lyrics, I’m always moved by the surprising profundity ofthe Spice Girls’ 2 Become 1... especially Mel B’s line: “Free your mind of doubt and danger. Be for real, don’t be a stranger. We can achieve it, we can achieve it.” No, this is not (solely) an excuse to print my picture with her. James Barr, music columnist The Saturdays’ “Whatcha doing Saturday, girl? I’m doing nothing” from Higher, the Flo Rida remix, natch. They predicted lockdown — psychic! John Dunning, journalist “What else could I say? Everyone is gay” from All Apologies by Nirvana. These lyrics changed the way I thought about myself as a gay teenager living in Africa. This song, together with Cobain’s portrait on the cover of The Face magazine wearing…

editor in chief’s letter

As we approach the 20th anniversary of the equal age of consent, which changed the law to no longer criminalise men over the age of 16 for having sex with each other, it’s easy to forget how important the moment was for us. It took ten years for the Wolfenden Report to go from official enquiry (1957) to legislation (1967). It was then an arduous battle to have the age of consent for sexual relations between men reduced from 21 to 18. And it wasn’t until two men pursued a legal battle in the European Court — the second time gay men had done so — that the frustrating back-and-forth battle between the House of Commons and the House of Lords eventually [spoiler warning] led to an equal age of consent…

the rules

AVOID THE NEWS. Miss Rona? I don’t know her. Stick to funny cat memes instead — did you see the one with the wet ass pussy? KEEP WARM by cosying up to a hotblooded man. Yes, Matt Hancock, we’re in an established relationship, look how far he’s established his dick inside our ass! STAY ACTIVE. Exercise is super important — endorphins and all that. Start small by occasionally flexing your index finger as you flick through Netflix. SEE THE LIGHT. Make the most of the sun when it is out. Great opportunity, too, to scare little kids with your new wintry wardrobe! USE YOUR TIME PRODUCTIVELY. As the dark nights draw in, organise that spice rack, sort out your sock drawer, open the Pandora’s box containing your repressed childhood memories… CREATE A PLAYLIST OF POSITIVE…
