SØLVE SUNDSBØ The Norwegian photographer was fascinated with our cover star Tilda Swinton’s fish pie (“The Showgirl in Wonderland,” page 74). “It looked delicious,” he says. Sundsbø lives in London with his wife and four children. His work has been featured in Love, Italian Vogue, and W.

We’ve Come a Long Way, Baby Before Chaz Bono, before Transparent, before Laverne Cox, in the hazy, far-off past (specifically, April 2008), Out released its first transgender issue (this issue’s cover star, Tilda Swinton, appeared on the cover of that issue too). We profiled some incredible people, tackled some issues that were almost wholly unknown to straight—and many LGB—readers, and we did a few things then that would certainly not fly today (like showing high school yearbook photos of some prominent drag and trans performers, though, importantly, with their permission). While some things stay the same (we profiled the remarkable Candis Cayne then, as well as in our trans-focused October 2016 issue), many things have changed. Columnist Josh Kilmer-Purcell declared himself post-gender, writing, “From this day forward I’m not going to use…

“I was just hoping I wasn’t gonna look back and be like, ‘Wow, you really shouldn’t have had any more Buffalo Wild Wings.’ ” “I LIKE TO BE AS NAKED as possible,” says Garrett Clayton. “If friends come over, I’ll just have on basketball shorts with no socks, no shirt, and maybe underwear. I hate clothes.” It’s a different act entirely, though, to shed layers on camera, possibly for millions to see—which is what Clayton does as the lead in King Cobra, director Justin Kelly’s knowingly sleazy biopic about the life of former gay-porn sensation Brent Corrigan (born Sean Paul Lockhart). Says Clayton, “I was just hoping I wasn’t gonna look back and be like, ‘Wow, you really shouldn’t have had any more Buffalo Wild Wings.’ ” The actor, 25, needn’t worry. Exuding…

1. Nocturnal Animals Tom Ford’s latest drama is as powerful as it is pretty. This much we know: Tom Ford is a master of style. The emotional sucker punch of A Single Man, the fashion designer’s 2009 debut as a filmmaker, came cushioned in a gorgeous succession of stark, painstaking images that evoked the hollowed-out heart of its title character. But sumptuous cinematography and framing can get a director only so far. Also striking are the performances Ford whittles out of his actors. Colin Firth was devastating in A Single Man, and in Ford’s second outing, Nocturnal Animals, that role goes to Amy Adams, who holds together the film with a delicate poise that captures vulnerability and reserve in equal measure. As Susan Morrow, a Los Angeles art dealer whose marriage is crumbling,…

Try doing supersets, circuit training, or interval training—anything in which you constantly go from one exercise to another. IT’S ESSENTIAL for losing weight, it’s great for your heart, blah, blah, whatever, we get it. Cardio is important. But here’s the thing: Cardio blows. Most people hate it, and those who don’t hate it are the worst. Just the worst. So if you’re in the majority and hate doing cardio, here are a few ways to skip getting on that treadmill, that elliptical, or—God forbid—that StairMaster. STACK YOUR SETS Try doing supersets, circuit training, or interval training—anything in which you constantly go from one exercise to another with little to no rest in between. That keeps your heart rate up. PUT YOUR BODY INTO IT Exercises that incorporate more than one muscle group effectively burn more…

JEREMY BONIA and chef Jeremy Charles opened Raymonds (see more on page 60) in St. John’s, Newfoundland, in 2010, winning EnRoute’ coveted title of Best New Restaurant in Canada in 2011. Bonia, in charge of Raymonds’s perfectly executed wine list, has himself been featured in Wine Spectator, Decanter, and The Globe and Mail for his oenophilic prowess. His three picks below are guaranteed to start you off on the right track to discovering the incredible things that Canadians are doing with fermented fruit. 1. BENJAMIN BRIDGE, NOVA SCOTIA “Without a doubt, Benjamin Bridge is producing the greatest sparkling wines in Canada, using the usual suspects (pinot noir and chardonnay grapes) and employing the traditional method—think champagne—from the Gaspereau Valley. The recurring themes with these wines are what I call ‘electric acidity’ and…
