"Gay Times has been a vital resource for the LGBTQ community from its genesis in 1974. Whether that’s been spreading crucial awareness on policy changes and highlighting the ongoing fight for liberation, to the latest in fashion, celebrity, TV, film and music: Gay Times represents the truly multifaceted nature of the queer community. In 2017, the brand was proudly relaunched to fully embody its newfound mission to amplify queer voices. Now truly representing the vast and varied experiences of the LGBTQ initialism, Gay Times has evolved to be far more than solely a magazine. Now a leading LGBTQ media brand with the largest online audience of any queer publication in the world, it reaches more people than ever before, and continues to create and facilitate authentic connections, across the globe."

a note from us.

Now that your decorations have been thrown back into the cupboard for another year, the last selection box has been reduced to empty wrappers, and you’ve watched pretty much everything Netflix has to offer during the holiday break, it’s time to look to the new year ahead. It’s the start of a new decade and one that follows 10 years of big wins for the LGBTQ community. From samesex marriage being legalised in numerous countries, the decriminalisation of homosexuality in places like India and Botswana, as well as increased visibility of queer people and culture in the mainstream, the 2010s – with all its political shocks and horrors – featured some big strides for LGBTQ people. But as we step into the 2020s, we must remain focussed on even greater wins…

SEX EDUCATION: SEASON (on Netflix from 17 January) Coming-of-age dramedy Sex Education became one of Netflix’s most successful shows ever when it premiered early in 2019, garnering over 40 million viewers in its first week of release and receiving acclaim from both critics and viewers at home, thanks in part to its diverse representation and tackling of sensitive subjects. There were heartwarming moments, genuinely educational lessons to be learned, and… banana blowjobs. The show’s highly-anticipated second season will see the arrival of new students – as well as a chlamydia outbreak – at Moordale Secondary, while Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) will explore his new-found confidence after gaining acceptance from his father, and we’ll finally find out what happens to Adam (Connor Swindells) after he was shipped off to military school. Get ready to…

HEALTHY SPIN. If you’re anything like us, half the battle of getting to the gym is drumming up the motivation to actually leave the house. It’s why home fitness is fast becoming big business. London’s most popular boutique fitness studio, 1Rebel, has announced a partnership with fitness equipment brand TechnoGym to meet this increasing demand. The studio has launched RIDE LIVE where users can hop on their spin bike and tune into 1Rebel’s most theatrical and blood-pumping classes that are either live-streamed right into your home or can be played from a library of pre-recorded Rides. Having the latest fitness tech in your home doesn’t come cheap, with the TechnoGym bike costing £2,450. However, as part of this new partnership 1Rebel are offering finance plans to remove the upfront cost of…

thanks to audi, our guests arrived in style.

On 21 November 2019, over 1,000 people arrived at Magazine London for the GAY TIMES Honours 500 ceremony, which recognises queer people and their allies who have had a profound impact on the community over the last 12 months. From community trailblazers to highly-visible queer stars, it’s an event that brings together people from all across our community to celebrate and inspire. Hosted by comedian and actor Benny Drama, it marked the biggest event in our company’s recent history, with show-stopping performances by Brazilian drag sensation Pabllo Vittar, Swedish songstress ALMA, rising singer-songwriters L Devine and Vincint and festival collective Little Gay Brother. We also had DJ sets from Honey Dijon, Jodie Harsh and BBZ - with guest appearances from Kevin McHale, Charli XCX, Ncuti Gatwa, MNEK, Vinegar Strokes, Munroe…

Despite his home country having strict laws against homosexuality (a remnant of British colonial-era rule), Alex has been singing about same-sex love and desire for years, from proclaiming that “these boys are all the same” on deliciously lo-fi 2016 track Stoop So Low through to recalling a memorable date with another man at East London’s queer bar Dalston Superstore on tender new ballad Superstore. It may seem like a risk to be so open about his sexuality in a homophobic environment, but Alex says his personal experiences have been mostly positive. “It feels great to be openly gay, it feels great that I can talk about these issues with people who are outside of my community as well, because I feel like that’s something I’ve always wanted to do, to let…
