SPOTLIGHT: THE HOFF

When we heard the legend that is David Hasselhoff was dropping by G-A-Y this Saturday, not only introducing his daughters’ new group Bella Vida but also to perform, we knew we had to get ‘The Hoff’ on the phone. Here Lee Dalloway finds out just what he’s up to in London Town… LEE: Hello sir, how are you? DAVID: I’m really...

STAY SUPER…

When the weekend is upon us, the call of a weekend clubbing is hard to resist. Friday night falls into Saturday morning, shandies become shots and you are only a few texts away from your next temptation. The party feels like it will never end, yet one this is for sure Monday will always follow Sunday, and with that...

‘THY DRUGS ARE QUICK’

By Patrick Cash Rarely is it a surprise to learn that drugs are widely used on the gay scene. People who party at the weekends for forty-eight hours straight aren’t staying up on Red Bull alone. But what exactly are the long-term physical effects of the drugs upon a body? GHB is probably the drug people know most about the dangers...

DRUGS: LEGALIZE THEM?

By Lee Dalloway My immediate answer to the question posed in the headline would most likely be “Yes”. “All of them”. But the world isn’t as clear cut as that. I also think every person who doesn’t find ‘Frasier’ funny should be banished from the planet, so I’m obviously a man of extremes. Yet, I also feel that fundamental changes need to...

BLACKMAIL BOYS (18)

Greg Araki’s acclaimed 1993 hit gets digitally re-mastered for a new DVD release, and it’s well worth revisiting as after almost 20 years it’s still eerily current. The Shumanski brothers have sharpened their filmmaking skills since their last movie Wrecked. Yes, it’s another gay drama with a natural, explicit approach to sex, but this blackly funny film has stronger story...

SNAP, CRACKLE AND POPCORN!

It’s hard to believe that Popcorn, one of Heaven’s – and London’s – most successful gay/mixed club nights celebrates their 14th Birthday next week. To celebrate, we asked Popcorn’s head honcho Chris Selby-Rickards to tell us his most memorable moments… Seven hundred and twenty-eight Monday nights at Heaven is an awful lot to remember and if I was to list...

DRAMA QUEENS: PART 14: 2000S

GAY HISTORY COMES TO LIFE Theatre-wise the first decade of the 21st century was dominated by Alan Bennett’s The History Boys (2004) set in a single sex school with two gay masters. The play was one of Bennett’s most popular and later became an equally successful film.  It arrived at a time when many gay playwrights were turning to history for...

NO SAFE PLACE

Xav Judd looks at the plight of LGBT asylum seekers… According to the UK Border Agency’s (UKBA) website, “The UK has a proud tradition of providing a place of safety for genuine refugees. However, we are determined to refuse protection to those who do not need it, and will take steps to remove those who are found to have made...

DRAMA QUEENS: PART 13: 1990S

ACTING UP Throughout the 1990s, theatre, hit hard by the AIDS epidemic, fought back. Broadway Cares, founded in 1988, raised hundreds of millions of dollars for AIDS-related causes, and similar initiatives worldwide followed suit. (The latest edition of one spin-off, West End Bares, is at the Café de Paris on 4th September). The Red Ribbon was first worn by Jeremy Irons...

TOTALLY F***ED UP (18)

Greg Araki’s acclaimed 1993 hit gets digitally re-mastered for a new DVD release, and it’s well worth revisiting as after almost 20 years it’s still eerily current. The loose story follows 18-year-old Andy (James Duval) and his lively gay buddies, plus a lesbian couple, all of whom are discovering that the road to romantic happiness isn’t very smooth. Meanwhile, they’re...
