We Talk To…

Klaus Nomi, the androgynous 80s ‘alien’, asked, ‘If they saw my face, could I still take a bow? Will they know me, know me, know me now?’ The unforgettable Klaus may have been singing about himself but he could equally have been singing about another of our androgynous icons, who takes references from the 80s […]

Joan Osborne Loverboy

Being an Editor-In-Chief of an international queer magazine has its perks. Sometimes it’s free trips to Spain, sometimes it’s back stage passes to Mariah in Vegas and sometimes it’s interviewing one of your favourite artists of all time – Joan Osborne. Back in the mid-90s we were caught up in that Lilith Fair moment and […]

yanis marshall loverboy

Loverboy’s resolution this year was to stop being a hot mess on the dancefloor and take some actual dance classes with choreography. But here we are in March – we’ve still not discovered our local studio and somehow we’re even more of a mess than last year. Someone we have been taking lessons from is […]

Sheryl Lee Ralph Loverboy

Although Loverboy may now be happily based on the east coast of Spain, there was a time when we would be down at the Eagle in Vauxhall, every Sunday night for Horsemeat Disco – the best night in London. And a staple of that very institution was Sheryl Lee Ralph and her anthem ‘In The Evening.’ […]

Lady Gaga Superbowl

Many many many years ago when Loverboy was just a twink of a gay, we were partial to hitting up London’s G-A-Y on a Saturday night, but sadly it had to leave the legendary Astoria and move to Heaven due to property prices. Cunts. But it was during this transitional period when an equally young Lady […]

Joanna Cassidy Loverboy

Bladerunner’s Zhora, Six Feet Under’s Margaret Chenowith and even Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead’s Rose – let’s be honest your faves could never. Yes, it’s fair to say Joanna Cassidy has taken on some truly iconic roles. Currently appearing in Bravo’s terrific Odd Mom Out, Loverboy caught up with her to discuss narrowly missing […]

Queer music (and queer culture, generally) is having a renaissance right now but we also have a rich and diverse history, some of it obscure and hidden… until now. For the glorious Martin Aston has written the definitive social history of LGBTQ music, Breaking Down The Walls Of Heartache: How Music Came Out. Loverboy’s Corinna […]

Muna Loverboy

Loverboy hasn’t been this excited about a band since poor Javine lost out to Sarah’s bum note for a place in Girls Aloud. But MUNA really are everything we need from a band in 2017. They reference The Craft, produce synthy pop gems, are outspokenly queer and even have a penchant for Mariah in drag. If […]
