DRAGONY AUNT

I’ve been cheating on my boyfriend for a few weeks and now I think I have gonorrhoea. The guy I cheated on him with has just been diagnosed with it, so I’m guessing I have it. Next week would be our fourth anniversary and my BF has booked us a weekend in Torremolinos. How do I tell him that...

“IT IS FUN. IT’S FUCKING FUN!”

Mika on making music, meeting the Queen and performing at Lovebox…   Where have you been? I’ve been hiding, re-cooking something. I was on tour for almost 3 years and it made me approach my third album, which is what I’m finishing now, in a very different way. Who have you been working with on it? A lot with Empire Of The Sun, Pharrell...

THE ‘C’ WORD

PETER THE PORN PIONEER

When he isn’t writing for QX, David McGillivray produces films. His latest, a documentary about veteran porn director Peter de Rome, returns to BFI Southbank this week... Allow me to choose some popular elements of gay porn in the 21st century. If, for example, you go to a site called Gay Male Tube, you’ll find 4,727 clips under the heading...

COME TO THE CABARET

Londontown is a veritable smorgasbord of cabaret treats, especially in Homoville. From theatrical performance to pub-dwelling divas, to the avant-garde and everything in between, there are few places with as much choice and talent as our fair capital. Here, our own dramatic duo Lee Dalloway and Jason Reid show you how life really can be a cabaret, with our...

SHADOW BOXING

James Gaddas’ play is to say the least (and let’s get the use of a boxing metaphor out of the way early) a TKO, ‘a technical knockout’. From the commencement of round 1 and the ding of the fight bell, this is a one-man show of an exceptional standard. Jonny Collis-Scurll’s performance as Flynn is breathtaking. The tour de...

HIS GREATNESS

The tragic decline of Pulitzer-prizewinning playwright Tennessee Williams, who suffered flop after flop during the last twenty years of his life, is the inspiration for this new drama in which theatre eats itself. Canadian actor-writer Daniel MacIvor dramatises one of the lowest points of Williams’ life. After his play, The Red Devil Battery Sign, had been panned in London, Williams...
