Q:My fav gay mag? A: DNA Magazine

My monthly treat!

Gays and girls (this truly applies only to G&G’s). This afternoon I have decided to introduce you to DNA Magazine. We all know our gay mags in the UK, be it Attitude, GT, The Pink Paper etc. There are plenty to choose from. However, I think a lot of you dont even know about the Australian DNA Magazine. Which is why I have decided you tell you all a little bit more.

I got familiar with DNA when I was living down under, back in 2003, when I was young and limber. I moved to Oz to see what all the fuzz was about and soon discovered that the county is littered with hot men, speedo and beaches. Perfect combination. I stumbled accross Aussiebum and then within few months picked up my first copy of DNA. It was issue 32, safe to say that I was hooked.

DNA was launched in 2000 in its native Australia and has for few good years been the best-selling magazine for gay men within the borders of that amazing country. Not only does it have beautiful pictorials, most issues have few fashion spreads concentrating on underwear, swimwear and sports gear. There are of course the occasional sweater (worn with speedo of course). They only use the hottests guys and somehow manage to find the most amazing pieces of clothing to wrap the guys in. I have bought numerous pieces of “clothing” after seeing them in DNA, be it swimwear or a snood. Must admit, they have a great eye to use the sexiest male models in the fashion stories. Winners! However, not only do they amazingly steamy photos but great feature stories about things that us as gay men are actually interested reading (in my opinnion of course), such as what is it like being gay in Iran, male rape, gay cruises etc. Every month we get pieces about grooming,¬†working out,¬†music, celebrity profiles, amazing travel pieces and of course the very witty and overly sex loaded column at the back cover.

DNA keeps me smiling on montly basis and I urge all my gays to pick up a copy sooner than later. It doesnt cost the earth and will keep you looking back from months. I have almost every issue since the first one, missing perhaps eight (which I am planning to back order) and my fav copies are kept on display on the coffee table right with the other magazines. It’s in my dna so to speak.
