Attitude's October issue is officially here, and boy what an edition do we have in store for you this month.

Gus Kenworthy, Laith Ashley, Renée Zellweger and Ross Mathews appear across three separate covers in an issue bringing you the best of LGBTQ culture and entertainment - and available to download and to order globally now.

Inside, Gus and Laith join forces for their respective second Attitude covers shoot, as the gay Olympic freeskier and transgender model sit down with Attitude Editor-in-Chief Cliff Joannou for a candid conversation about the most pressing issues facing the community today.

In a deeply personal interview, Gus and Laith highlight the LGBTQ trauma and violence which continues to disproportionately affect transgender people, and call on cisgender gay men to step up their efforts to support their trans brothers, sisters, and non-binary siblings.

Meanwhile, in her first UK and LGBTQ press interview since taking on the role of Judy Garland in upcoming movie biopic Judy, Renée Zellweger opens up about her experiences in the glare of the Hollywood spotlight and personal connection with the LGBTQ community.

In a wide-ranging interview, the Oscar-winning actress reveals the reason she decided to step away from the public eye almost a decade ago, and tells us how she came to recognise both the professional and personal struggles Garland while playing the late gay icon.

Elsewhere, Ross Mathews brings his irrespressible nature to the cover of Attitude for the first time as the RuPaul's Drag Race judge discusses his ever-growing status in Hollywood and finding himself single again on the cusp of 40 as he gears up to host the Virgin Atlantic Attitude Awards 2019, powered by Jaguar.

From camp-shaming and monogamy to the breakdown of his 10-year releationship, no subject is off-limits with one of America's most effervescent entertainers.

Also in Attitude's October issue, Judy Garland's daughter, singer and actress Lorna Luft, discusses her late mother's legacy and relationship with half-sister Liza Minelli, and pop star Shura reveals how falling in love helped shape her second record, forevher.

England rugby star Chris Robshaw also sounds about homphobia in sport and Israel Folau in our Active pages, and Brighton drag queen Lydia L'Scabies is our latest 'Big In a Wig'.

We also meet comedian and rising star Will Jackson, and bring you a special report on Rainbow Riots, the musical movement bringing together some of India's first openly LGBTQ artists.

That's alongside all your usual news, reviews, fashion and travel, of course.
