As well as being the ultimate guide to gay London with our pages and pages of club and bar coverage, QX also features a huge variety of features, from political and social issues facing the gay community today to our hugely popular series of queer history specials. Of course, we have lots of lighthearted editorial, too, such as interviews with scene personalities, celebrities and pop stars.

Living Art Divas!

Living Art Divas!

Pride means deliriously celebrating diversity in every way possible, and for some, living every moment as human performance art. So, ever heard of an ex-transsexual? You have now – s/he’s writing this column! Yep, I gave sweet, juicy head to endless oestrogen pills, which ruthlessly shrank my cock and ballooned my hips, butt and boobs, but for what? Disillusionment, big-time! Why be surgically rearranged with a crappy faux-cunt that – on a bad day – might leak faeces, spray piss uncontrollably and barely, if ever, orgasm?

Over 50,000 sign petition to declare London independent from the UK

Over 50,000 sign petition to declare London independent from the UK

A petition has been started imploring London Mayor Sadiq Khan to remove London from the UK, and it is gaining meteoric traction online. Started by James O'Malley earlier this afternoon, the petition has already gained 50,000 signatures. It comes as Nicola Sturgeon fairly explicity hints at a second Independent Referendum for Scotland, and remain voters everywhere shake their heads in despair. Meanwhile, many leave voters are expressing regret. One told the BBC: "I'm shocked and worried. I voted leave but didn't think my vote would count. I didn't think it would actually happen." NICE ONE HUN. For the record, if a vote for an Independent London were on the cards, QX Magazine would, of course, be totally behind it. Partly because it's all quite camp and is making us feel our Game Of Thrones fantasy, but ALSO because the results of the referendum have not reflected the opinions and values of those who we know and love. So. WATCH THIS SPACE. (P.s. if it does happen we nominate Jacqui Potato as High Carbohydrate Chancellor and Lady Lloyd as Sexual Health Minister).
 
Editor’s Letter: Pride In London

Editor’s Letter: Pride In London

Jesus, is it Pride again already? I’ve barely recovered from the last one. Right, where’s my Oyster card? Where’s my bandana? Someone wake up Rebecca Ferguson, I think she’s still curled up asleep on my sofa. Cuddling a slowly decomposing kebab. 

 
Looks To Try For Pride

Looks To Try For Pride

We don’t care if you’ve read a few issues of Vogue, or done half  a  fashion communications course at Central Saint Martins, once spilled a glass of cheap plonk down Alexa Chung’s Peter Pan collar dress at the launch of a shit restaurant in Camden.
