In full | Attitude's dinner with Olly Alexander, Paris Lees and Princess Julia

2015-12-26
With 2015 drawing rapidly to a close (and what a year it’s been), we thought we’d treat you to something extra special in time for Christmas: Dinner with Attitude! We’ve been thrilled to welcome Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander to our cover this month, and we thought what better way to celebrate how far all things LGBT have come this than to bring together pop’s Prince of 2015 with some of the best movers and shakers of Britain’s gay community. dinner 3 Attitude sat down in London’s gorgeous Hoi Polloi restaurant with co-creator of London’s queer extravaganza Sink The Pink, Glyn Fussell (who kindly hosted proceedings), legendary DJ, writer and LGBT icon Princess Julia, and trans activist, writer and Attitude Editor-at-Large Paris Lees for an evening of fun, frivolity and real talk about modern gay life. Part 1, sees the gang tuck into their starters and discuss everything from guilty pleasures, crushes, most rock n’ roll moments and why Christmas can always be a hard time for LGBT people. Part 2 sees Olly reveal what it’s like going back to his small hometown – a place where he was viscously teased and bullied for being different – as a famous and very openly gay man, while the third and final instalment sees everyone discuss what the future holds for both themselves and the LGBT community. Watch Dinner with Attitude in its entirety below – bon appétit!
