Editor's Letter

GT LETTER 402

Baby, it’s cold outside. We know you just want to be indoors, warm in your loungewear (we’re not calling them pyjamas), watching the telly. So we thought we’d make those worlds collide by bringing you the stars and writers of some of the best shows on the box – and getting one of them into bed-ready gear just for you.
So you can get cosy with Hustle’s Matt Di Angelo or turn up the heat and lose the lot with Hollyoaks’ Emmett Scanlan and TOWIE’s Harry Derbidge. And if that’s not enough we’ve got interviews with the men behind two incredible productions – Mark Gatiss’ Sherlock and Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story.
We love TV. LOVE it. For all the people talking about how television has been dumbed down, you’re not looking closely enough. Sure, we love reality programming and competitive talent shows but there’s also some incredible dramas, comedies and documentaries (don’t even get us started on how utterly wonderful Frozen Planet was) out there. And each of them does there own bit, in their own way, for increasing gay visibility.
Television raising awareness is also giving a voice to members of our extended community that have previously felt somewhat neglected, thanks to Channel 4’s My Transsexual Summer, which we also look at this month.
And speaking of raising awareness, the response to last months naked issue has been incredible – with donations to the Elton John AIDS Foundation from readers flooding in. Keep it up – we have a couple more (TV related) participants featured from our mammoth 120-guy naked shoot this month, but the rest are still yet to come. Watch this space…
A very happy new year from everyone at GT!

xoxo
