Meet queer locker-room sculptor Alexander Glass

… the glass smashes, limbs freeze and the fluid runs thick. Nestled in the bowels of an industrial Hackney workspace is the ragtag studio of Alexander Glass. Plaster cast hands and torsos adorn the wall of his body shop of works-in-progress, with hardened blue resin shards piling up on shelves all covered in a film of scattered powder-white particles. Glass...

Getting to know Sailors Sauna

QX meets sauna owner Richard to talk shop, and why sauna’s are still so popular. Saunas are a valued part of our culture as gay men. They’ve been there for us from the days of ancient Greece, through the early ‘70s, and are still a vital part of the scene to this day. We decided to sit down for a...

QX meets Jonny Bravo-inspired Drag King HP Loveshaft

Loveshaft, baby. Loveshaft! Founder of the California-based queer cabaret Pangea and drag king dynamo. HP Loveshaft caught our attention recently with his super-slick, swaggering routine.

Tilda Swinton Answers an Ad on Craigslist review – a raucous romp that is equal parts bombastic and ludicrous

Topher’s Self-love must-haves this Valentine’s Day

Clonezone sex guru enlists the help of his colleague Daniel Shoneye to round up this season’s must have gear. Valentine’s Day is, and has always been, very ‘couple-centric’ and I’m not really a fan of that. I don’t know how many people really care about V Day anymore honestly… it seems to be a little dated and out-of-place. My colleague...

QX meets THAT kid from School of Rock 15 years on

“You’re tacky and I hate you.” Ifan Llewelyn catches up with Brian Falduto a decade and a half after his iconically effeminate role. This month marks fifteen years since Black Jack squiddily-dooed his way into our hearts as washed-up rock star and supply-teacher impersonator Dewey Finn, or should we say Mr Schneebly, in School of Rock. The film was...

My Orange Valentine

A candle-lit dinner for two really ain’t our style. Here are the balls-to-the-wall parties you should be doing instead. It’s almost that time of year again where nearly everywhere you turn you have big red hearts assaulting your vision, and cuddly teddies clouding your nightmares. If you’re single, it’s a tough time where almost every shop-front you pass is...

"It can be tough not fitting in - but I also kind of live for it." We meet author and drag queen, Crystal Rasmussen. Everyone should read Crystal Rasmussen’s new book. It’s called “Diary of a Drag Queen” but it’s so much more than that. It’s an account of Crystal’s life and loves, both in and out of drag. It’s...
