Gay Men and Their Attitude Problem Diamond review

AdvantagesLots of pictures

DisadvantagesSuperficial

"...by Northern and Shell plc, Attitude is a glossy monthly magazine that features a selection of articles on fashion, music, relationships and things to do. For all its much-vaunted position of superiority - and innovation - it is a magazine that I only buy occasionally. Attitude magazine seems to labour under the misapprehension that it is innovative and groundbreaking and sets itself clearly aside from the rest of the "pink press". This really isn't ..."

An ambivalent attitude.

AdvantagesIt's a gay-oriented magazine

DisadvantagesGhettoisation.

"I buy attitude and Gay Times whenever it comes out (geddit) and they are, in my eyes, very much at opposite ends of the spectrum. Gay Times is very factual and delivers news in a very informative way. I don’t like having to buy gay magazines because it annoys me that most other magazines fail to cater for everyone, but still, it’s nice to grab your magazines, go up to the most stuck-up looking old hag at the counter in WH Smiths and plonk ..."

Disadvantagessee opp

"...as not everyone who reads attitude can afford the clothes they promote. As for the “how gay are you” section which seems to annoy a lot of people, the magazine is poking fun at the stereotypical view of gays, but at the same time, reinforcing it. Not everyone fits into that label. Does the fact that you know the lyrics to a Madonna song make you more, gay than the next person? I sense something wrong here. The problem here is this page tries to ..." Read review

This Magazine definetely has Attitude

AdvantagesUltra Cool

DisadvantagesOcassionaly Bordering on pretentious

"...like Steps or Atomic Kitten, Attitude is a magazine that breathes fresh air into the gay magazines market. Attitude is packed full of articles by respectable journalists covering a wide range of contemporary issues both gay and straight-related. As usual there is your normal bevvy of semi-naked men-which is something I'm certainly not complaining about! There are plenty of articles on fashion, music and clubbing with the emphasis on cool, urban man ..." Read review

Gay life lite and frothy - capuccino a go go

AdvantagesNice pictures, easy read

DisadvantagesCan't be left on your coffee table

"Attitude was a welcome change and alternative life-style magazine falling in between the staid and less interesting Gay Times and the giveaways found in most gay bars. Somewhere along the line it has come off track and has become almost unbearably light weight and predictable. The reviews are biased and transparently sponsored, How many of their readership can really afford to stay in a £300 a night chi chi boutique hotel in Paris for example. The ..." Read review

It's my opinion and I will cry if I want to

AdvantagesProvides Gay entertainment

DisadvantagesOut for all too see

"...two year olds looking at attitude magazine. On the front there was a topless male. I am NOT gay myself but I just think that this kind of publication should be a mail order only. It is all said and done that gays have their rights but when it comes down to it I was disgusted. Thankfully I saw them kids pick up a Cartoon Rosie and Jim magazine. Later on that day it was a good job those kids did not pick up that magazine. H from steps was as naked ..." Read review
