The October issue of Attitude has arrived, and after celebrating our landmark 300th issue last month, we’re not letting up with not one but three gag-worthy cover stars.

Following a summer that saw her return to the big screen in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, the legendary Cher returns to the cover of Attitude for the first time since 2013 for a world exclusive interview.

Ahead of the release of her upcoming album of album covers, Dancing Queen, the musical icon discusses her endruing legacy, her unbreakable bond with the gay community, and reveals why she hasn’t watched Mamma Mia! yet despite her scene-stealing performance.

Meanwhile, the star of Mr Robot, Rami Malek, sits down for an exclusive shoot and interview as the world gets ready to witness his eagerly-anticipated turn as Freddie Mercury in upcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

Following a string of controversies during early production of the film, 37-year-old Rami explains how Freddie’s illness and sexuality remains central to the film’s narrative, and how the role changed his own life.

Plus, a month ahead of the Virgin Holidays Attitude Awards, powered by Jaguar in London, the ceemony’s host Andy Cohen reveals how his time in the UK helped him find the confidence to come out in his youth.

The first out gay man to host a US chat show and the mind behind the Real Housewives franchise, Andy shares revealing and intimate details about his personal life as he opens up about finding love in the spotlight.

Also in the October issue of Attitude, available to download now and to order globally: Music’s most cerebral singer, John Grant, opens up about the inspirations for his upcoming album Love Is Magic and Strictly Come Dancing’s AJ Pritchard reveals how he’s been training to take part in the show’s first same-sex professional dance pairing.

Doctor Who’s Jodie Whittaker also discusses her history-making turn as The Doctor ahead of the sci-fi series’ return to screens next month, and fellow Broadchurch alumnus Jonthan Bailey reveals how he’s bringing a gay twist to his role in a bold reimagining of the hit music Company.

As well as all your usual news, reviews, travel and fashion, we also investigate the the barbaric truth about the gay men subjected to government-sanctioned torture across the world.
