XXL presents BEAR PRIDE
Bear Pride returns to XXL next week on Saturday 28th May. To get you in the mood, we asked the lovely ursine fellas of XXL a question: What makes you PROUD TO BE A BEAR?
Guilty Pleshures: TV Show Hunks
This is our new GUILTY PLESHURES section! We know that’s not how PLESHURES is spelled, but we’ve written it like that for copyright reasons, because it’s the same name as a section in the Metro where they write about “TOWIE stars” and “celeb scandals” and “Rita Ora”.
Nicola Roberts: Career Retrospective
The Sex Shells presents Going Down
Self-proclaimed darlings of the London gay scene and denizens of the comedy underworld, queer comedy sketch troupe The Sex Shells are leaving their current home of Haggerston’s super-pub The Glory and heading to the seaside!
Our Fave Famous Twinks
In order to write about the gay scene, you have to actually go out on it sometimes. At QX we’re constantly documenting the week’s events through professional photo reviews, but one drunken evening Dylan and I decided “why not cut out the middle man?” We could document our own night, we slurred to each other, with our phones and pads and iPogs and ManDroids or whatever.
Shit TV Shows That Are Actually Amazing
So, because we’re cultural commentators and media tastemakers (lol), we like to peruse popular culture every so often.
The Yard Needs You!

OLÉ! The Spanish LGBT Community in London
You know them, you’ve seen them and you have definitely partied with them. James Egan talks to...The Spanish LGBT Community in London
Bear’s Birthday Gift Guide
Well wouldn’t you just know it? The inimitable head honcho of XXL, Mr Mark Ames (seen here in his saucy holiday snaps), is having a birthday! How old, you ask? HOW RUDE. He’s obviously not a day over 32. Don’t believe us? Well then you better nip down to XXL on Saturday March 19th and ask him yourself, you cheeky sod. But before you do, why not pick him up a prezzie to help him celebrate? We’ve compiled the ultimate ursine gift guide to help you pick out something for him, or for the other big boys in your life.
