Shocking statistics about homophobia in football revealed by GAY TIMES and Paddy Power

30% of fans admit they would find two men kissing at a match uncomfortable. As part of Paddy Power’s initiative to kick out homophobia in football, they joined forces with us here at GAY TIMES to carry out their most authoritative survey yet into attitudes towards LGBTQ issues in the sport. After speaking with 1,010 heterosexual football fans across the country, the YouGov survey revealed that homophobia within the sport is still rampant. Although 80% of fans said they would be uncomfortable hearing homophobic abuse at a match, around 30%...

We ranked all 9 seasons of American Horror Story from worst to best

Which season of American Horror Story comes out on top?  Ryan Murphy’s anthology horror series has received massive amounts of critical acclaim since its premiere, with particular praise for the performances of its lead stars – especially Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Angela Bassett. The series has just aired its most critically-acclaimed instalment to date, 1984, and has been confirmed to return for a 10th – and possibly final – outing next year. In celebration – and commiseration – we ranked all nine seasons from worst to best....

Out at Tesco’s executive sponsor on how the company is leading the way with LGBTQ inclusivity

“Workplaces should be for work, not judgement.” In recent years, Tesco has been recognised as one of the leading companies in the world when it comes to LGBTQ inclusivity. As proud Stonewall Diversity Champions, members of the Open for Business Coalition and supporters of this year’s GAY TIMES Honours 500 celebration, Tesco have made it their mission to not only support their queer employees, but to support queer people across the globe. “For the last few years in the UK we have supported Switchboard and raised money for them, and in Ireland...

Filmmakers Samuel Weeks and Aidan O’Neill on their film which will highlight the plight of the LGBTQ community in Eswatini

“I think it’s all about telling personal stories, and I think it’s about telling personal stories with a view to affecting change to a large group of people.” Eswatini, formally known as Swaziland, is a small country in southern Africa, with a 2017 census putting the population at 1,093,238. Male homosexuality is illegal, and members of the LGBTQ community have no rights. In 2017, following a UN report that called for a law to protect the LGBTQ community, the Foreign Minister, Mgwagwa Gamedze, rejected it saying so few LGBTQ people...

Testing for HIV is something to be proud of – it puts you in control of your sexual health

National HIV Testing Week runs from 16 to 22 November. I cannot over-emphasise that HIV testing is relevant for everyone, regardless of sexuality, gender, ethnicity or age. I recommend that you have an HIV test if you’ve had a casual partner within the last year or not tested previously.  This November I have been reflecting on HIV testing and my own journey with the virus in a fresh light. I was diagnosed with HIV on 18 January 2010, so it is nearly 10 years ago now. I was 24 years...

Cheryl Hole on Drag Race US vs UK and who she’s rooting for on season 2

“Could you imagine me and Vanjie on the same season? That would make for iconic television.” After seven weeks of tongue-popping, death-dropping and earning zero RuPeter badges (undeserved!), Cheryl Hole was sadly told to sashay away from RuPaul’s Drag Race UK. The dancing diva of Essex was – in the words of the GC – “all gamed out”. This week, the final four queens – Cheryl, Baga Chipz, Divina De Campo and The Vivienne – were tasked with giving a sickening drag makeover to their mums and sisters. Although Cheryl’s...

K-pop star Holland on coming out and providing a voice for LGBTQ people in South Korea

Holland is walking the path less travelled with pride. The South Korean singer, commonly referred to as the ‘first gay K-pop idol’ in the media, made a massive step for queer representation in his home country when he emerged onto the music scene last year as an out and proud artist, putting his sexuality (and his heart) on the line as he sang about discrimination and wanting to escape to a place where he can love freely on debut single Neverland. The music video featured a same-sex kiss, which disappointingly...

Jaewynn gets nostalgic and celebrates queer love on new single Spice Girl

Jaewynn is a fresh queer artist you need to add to your playlists. The San Francisco-based rapper’s new single Spice Girl is a swaggering, effortlessly-cool track that takes inspiration from late 90s to early 00s R&B and hip-hop – and of course the pop culture-defining British girl group the Spice Girls. As well as being a total earworm, the song sees Jaewynn put her queerness front-and-centre in a genre that historically hasn’t been very welcoming to members of the LGBTQ community – at least not in the mainstream – and using female...

Greyson Chance explores the “modern cowboy” in Boots music video

“I was just thinking a lot about what it means to be the modern cowboy, and I think a lot of people were getting it wrong.” Greyson Chance has unveiled the music video to his incredible new country-rock anthem, Boots. The American singer-songwriter – who hails from Oklahoma – revisits his country roots in the visual, portraying a modern day Johnny Cash decked out in black leather as he brawls with an outlaw in a more traditional cowboy ensemble. When we spoke to Greyson, he said the track and its...

Drag Race UK star Blu Hydrangea on the Frock Destroyers, Eurovision and All Stars

“I was confident, I was dirty, I was a Frock Destroyer!” Each year, when the RuPaul’s Drag Race cast is unveiled, fans are quick to categorise the contestants into the ‘comedy queen’ or ‘Instagram queen’ bracket, without really knowing what they have hidden in their repertoire. For Blu Hydrangea, she fell into the latter. She boasted the most followers on social media and has been praised to the mothertucking high heavens thanks to her breathtaking makeup skills and quirky, fashion-forward lewks. The Northern Irish didn’t let us down, serving some...
