Earlier this month, award-winning documentary filmmakers Jac Nunns and Angie West launched their LGBTQ-only streaming service for short films, dedicated to entertain and educate viewers on the richness of queer culture. Queer Bee’s aim is to showcase LGBTQ stories that would otherwise go underrepresented. Yes, we’ve been treated to Oscar nominated dramas over the past decade such as Call Me By Your Name, Moonlight and Carol, but there’s still a significant lack of mainstream movies that represent the entire community. “QueerBee...

The camp saw British hitmaker MNEK invite a host of diverse queer artists including Olly Alexander, Rina Sawayama, L Devine, Leo Kalyan, Sakima, Caitlyn Scarlett, Bryn Christopher and Ryan Ashley to collaborate and share their experiences. With songwriting and production credits for A-list artists like Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Little Mix, Christina Aguilera and even Beyoncé under his belt – as well as his own incredible studio album – MNEK knows what it takes to write a great song. We caught up...

In the 72 hours before we meet, Bobby was in LA, New York and also Phoenix. After leaving us – on a trip that included an appearance on national television and a date by Royal appointment, in the company of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – he’s casually off to Las Vegas. Confessing he’s feeling just a tad sleepy (and possibly hungover after partying with Killing Eve star Jodie Comer), Bobby is all ours as we meet to discuss...

 Whether it’s incorporating dry humour and tongue in cheek satire into his collection, or touching upon the juxtaposition between queer identity and streetwear culture, GAY TIMES delves into the mind and world of queer artist Leo Babsky, the brains and creative force behind streetwear brand, Old-Age. What were the points of references that inspired your new collection?    For the current collection ‘Bored & Depressed’ we were really thinking about how social media promotes this super happy, upbeat façade which isn’t a...

“A change certainly has to happen, and it’s begun to happen in the US in terms of a lot of younger people, people of colour, women running for office,” she passionately continues in regards to representation. “It feels like there’s this incredible disconnect between people who have political power and the people who are governed by that political power.” Since her debut in the industry, K.Flay has used her platform to speak out on political issues and to advocate for...

US footballer Kelley O’Hara has seemingly nonchalantly come out by kissing her girlfriend after the US national team won this year’s Women’s World Cup. In the celebrations after the final whistle, Kelley ran to the stands, among others players, and kissed her girlfriend. Other members of the US women’s football team like Megan Rapinoe, Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris are also LGBTQ, the latter of whom are engaged. Writing on SB Nation, Kim McCauley praised Kelley, writing: “This is not a...

Jacob Tobia is tired of being asked where non-binary stops and trans starts. “At a certain point I want to say, ‘Can you stop dissecting me? I’m a person,’” the author of Sissy: A Coming-of-Gender Story said. “I don’t want to dissect my community like that. I don’t want to dissect my chosen family like that. I just know what feels like home when it feels like home.” Tobia, who identifies as genderqueer, made their comments during a panel discussion at...

According to We Got This Covered – an extension of entertainment site Rotten Tomatoes – the upcoming villain of the movie, Black Mask, will be portrayed as homosexual and have undeniable sexual tension with fellow villain Victor Zsasz. Black Mask will be played by Golden Globe winning Scottish actor Ewan McGregor. The film will see the villain face off against Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). News of Black Mask’s alleged sexuality was met...

‘Straight Pride’ has been in the headlines for weeks as a group called Super Happy Fun America received a permit to hold their event on August 31 from the City of Boston. According to their website, they hope that the parade and platform will mean that “FINALLY STRAIGHT PEOPLE WILL HAVE THEIR VOICES HEARD”. Pause for dramatic eye-roll. Instead of simply ignoring this childish, toys-out-of-the-pram, knee-jerk reaction to LGBTQ people getting more attention than our straight counterparts for just ONE...

MTV The season 8 cast. Like all dating reality show franchises, MTV’s Are You the One? has a shtick. A bunch of young singles are thrown together in a house, set in the kind of tropical paradise required for finding true love on television. The twist: Using old-school matchmaking techniques and complex algorithms, dating experts have paired the housemates with their supposed “ideal” mates,...

Contemplate these questions and more as you schlep your laundry to the laundromat in this rainbow-colored IKEA bag! IKEA announced that it is partnering with the Human Rights Campaign Foundation to celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride Month with a rainbow-colored, limited-edition KVANTING shopping bag. If you purchase the...

Queer representation in children's animation has been getting better and better as the years go by, and while it's nice to see so many new, inclusive titles premiering on so many networks, we wish some of our old-school faves would also introduce queer characters as well. Well it looks like Arthur might have just heard our prayers... The long-running PBS Kids series (which has been airing since 1996) just confirmed that Mr. Nigel Ratburn, Arthur Read's cake-loving, third-grade, Lakewood Elementary...

We have the term in our publication name. Some guys don’t care for the word. But what does “queer” mean? How does it differ from “gay”? And are or aren’t the two words interchangeable? These are all questions Redditors recently mulled… but don’t hold out hope for a consensus! Here’s a wide-ranging variety of comments, edited for readability. “People seem to use queer like how some people use non-binary. So it basically means whatever feel like. Queer seems to...
