After bursting onto the charts in 2015 with 'Tilted', a song about feeling out of place, Christine and the Queens – also known as Chris – was quickly embraced by LGBTQ audiences, not least for the fact that she spoke openly about being pansexual.
With critical acclaim and commercial success, a penchant for pushing boundaries and buttons in her music and beyond, and an endearing honesty and openness, Chris was a ready-made Attitude Artist Award-winner.
For her cover story in Attitude's Awards issue - out to order globally and download to any device - the 31 year old sat down with editor-in-chief Cliff Joannou for a chat covering her recent highs, including releasing her sophomore album and headlining Glastonbury and Coachella, and lows, the death of her mother and a painful break up.
