  • Sweden’s First Gay Scandal. Meet Theodor and his boys.
  • Twinks Can Get You Trouble. This issue’s case study details how a UK jury decided that confirmed 18+ adult actors were underage.
  • Raster detective. Our series on vintage magazines continues with Superboy from 1980.
  • Culture articles on manga, anime and radio drama.
  • Plus reader letters, news stories, book reviews and more!
