    Fashion, art, style, travel, body, culture. Edition anglaise d'un magazine gay néerlandais, richement illustré, 130 p. Ce magazine connu depuis de longues années sous le nom de Winq aux Pays-Bas, a paru pendant un moment en édition anglaise sous le nom de "Mate". Ils ont décidé par soucis de cohérence de renommer l'édition anglaise du magazine "Winq." 

    Winq, the luxury lifestyle magazine for gay men, offers a different perspective. Produced six times a year out of London, Amsterdam and New York, the work of award-winning writers, designers and photographers brings a global agenda to life. News, politics and comment are supplemented by international reportage and interviews alongside fashion, style and travel sections that both stimulate and inspire


    Sommaire :

    Winq’s editor-in-chief Matt Cain has hit back at fashion brand Abercrombie and Fitch. To celebrate Pride Month over the weekend, the company shared a misguided tweet which claimed that pride isn’t just for LGBT+ people. The tweet, which has since been deleted following backlash, was part of the brand’s collaboration with the Trevor Project, who [...]

    In the Autumn 2017 issue of Winq – the premium quarterly journal for gay gentlemen, sister publication to Attitude – Tales of the City author Armistead Maupin opens up in a world exclusive interview about his long-awaited memoir, Logical Family.

    He discusses growing up gay in a homophobic family in the American South, his struggle to accept and express his sexuality, and then his move to bohemian San Francisco and how this inspired his writing. He also reveals how he met his much-younger husband via a dating website – and is having the best sex of his life at 73.

    On finding it difficult to write about his parents’ reaction to his sexuality:

    ‘I think the examination of my parents’ behaviour around it all was pretty tough because I had always romanticised my mother’s sweetness and I realised to some degree I’m still angry about the fact that she didn’t do more than she did to bring my father over to understanding me. She was mostly trying to calm the waters all the time, that was her instinct; just avoid subjects and not inflame the old man.’

    On how he was influenced by his sexual awakening:

    ‘It was dick that saved my life really. Once you realise how much joy you’ve been depriving yourself of, you can start claiming your own life. Actually, sex made me realise that I was much more of a bohemian creature than I thought, that everything I loved was more about being open-minded than narrow-minded.’


    On his brother’s ongoing homophobia:

    ‘I look at it as a failure of intelligence, not a deliberate act of cruelty on his part. My brother has inherited my father’s mantle in his own mind. And part of that is to carry those attitudes along with him. I’m sort of really beyond being hurt… I wrote books that offered the first sympathetic transgender character in literature forty years ago and my brother’s family is on Facebook talking about protecting their little girls from the men who want to go into the public toilets. They’re that far removed from any kind of rational understanding of transgender life, not to mention pure compassion.’

    On how his sexuality inspired his writing:

    ‘I used to think as I child that I would see the word ‘homosexuality’ in a page of print and it would leap out at me, it would just burn its way into my brain, I was so afraid of it. Everything I did was to cover that up, to cover up what I knew to be true about myself. But I spent all my time fretting over something that turned out to be the best thing I’d ever been given.’
