the editor’s letter

Last week my best friend texted me to say his mother had been diagnosed with cancer. She had three months to live. Sitting on the ferry home, I tried to process these words from across the globe in a controlled, dare I say ‘blokey’ manner.I couldn’t.Seeing tears stream down my face, the gentleman opposite me whispered, “Are you all right, mate?”My friend’s mother is like a surrogate mother to me, she’s been in my life longer than she has not. I wasn’t all right, and sobbing in front of fellow commuters served to demonstrate that.I replied to the message as best I knew how, then later I was pleased my friend called and we had a DMC* – sharing support, counselling advice, laughter and more tears.Now, two blokes blubbing…

Just like that, Queer Eye – a reboot of the ’00s original – has become the most culturally relevant show on TV. At a time in which men are facing something of an identity crisis, who better than the Fab Five to roll in and make your life better, forever? As always, kudos to Netlflix for being on point with this one. *A DEEP AND MEANINGFUL CONVERSATION , OBVS.PHOTOGRAPHY: GIUSEPPE SANTAMARIA; ADAM BAIDAWI. ■…

GQ’S VERY OWN SUPERMAN AFTER COMPLETING A 13KM RUN, WITH NO SLEEP OR TRAINING. ADAM BAIDAWI INTERVIEWED/ CHASED DOWN HENRY CAVILL, P92 OK, cards on the table, DC or Marvel? I’m comic book agnostic. I’ll take a solid story with well-written characters, please. Don’t care whose logo comes before the titles. So how was your time with Superman? Good. He’s certainly quiet. But over the years I’ve found that can often make for a great story. A lot has been said of Henry’s moustache – inspire you to grow one of your own? Important: My father rocked what I consider to be a top-three all-time moustache, nailing all the key components: shape, density and attention to detail. More important: there’s no fucking way I could pull…

behind the scenes

Another of Teixeira’s highlights was visiting the Sea Gypsies at Bicheno. Living completely off the land, the people that inhabit this bohemian community were nothing shy of hospitable, bringing the crew rosé, beer, cheese - and an entire lobster. Couched off-the-grid deep in the Freycinet National Park, you couldn’t have recreated this set if you tried. Photographer Drew Wheeler pulled out his inner abseiler, launching from one rock to another in pursuit of the right shot. The rust-coloured rocks that crust the cliffs at Bay of Fires made for a luminous backdrop. (PHOTOGRAPHY: DREW WHEELER.) For a state that’s often the butt of Australian jokes, Tasmania – rich in history, culture and delicious oysters – has a lot going for it. It’s also where…
