FUSE27 — Don't define my gayness

It's our Birthday

THIS IS IT! With the Mayan Calendar apparently ending on December 21 this year, some believe that this will be our last year on Earth as we know it. Many may think of doom and gloom but I’m actually all very excited — aliens, god, mass enlightenment, giant meteor, maybe nothing at all… it’s like a super lotto draw with an unknown prize: (a) you may not “win” anything; and (b) if you do, you just don’t know what your going to get!

So it’s going to be important to make the most of this year — even if nothing happens. The funny thing is: that’s how we should always be living. Armageddon or not, every day could be our last. I know I personally forget that all the time, so this is really more a reminder for me than you. Don’t waste a second.

So I hope that reading FUSE this year is well worth some of your valuable time. We have some really great new writers that have joined the FUSE team. We’ve got a new style and grooming whiz, Colby Kern Morrell. If you’re into fashion, interior design or grooming you’ll love his column. Colby’s trying to change the world one soy latté at a time! p18.

Ginni Hettihewa joins us from JOY 94.9 FM, where she’s the producer and presenter of Her Society — your one stop radio show for girls who love girls. She’s going to keep you all up-to-date with what’s happening in the world of girlie entertainment and news. This issue Ginni interviewed our cover girl, lesbian singer Krystle Warren, who is currently touring Australia p10. She also chatted to DJ ISH; plus the women from the new webseries Newtown Girls — which by all accounts is going to be a smash hit p17.

We also welcome a new feature writer, Hayley MacDonald. This issue Hayley writes about the world of gay surfing and talks to the guys and girls from GaySurfers.net. And we’d like to introduce Lachlan Keddie our new youth writer, Melissa Jien Tai who will endeavor to keep you healthy this year, and Melisa Paz who will be doing our Horoscopes — check them out on p45.

FUSE just gets stronger and stronger and we hope that as we enter our fourth year we have something for everyone, no matter how you identify or who you love. LIFE. LOVE. EQUALITY.

Enjoy, Alex
