The issue also examines the pickle UK evangelical preacher Paul Shinners got himself in after reportedly travelling to Uganda to support the infamous "Kill the Gays"? Bill; carries a feature on gay life in New Zealand, and details the role the late Mary Whitehouse, UK Christian morals crusader and prosecutor of Gay News, played in the launch of the UK Gay Humanist Group in 1979.

Editor Barry Duke examines the negative impact of Islamic fundamentalism in areas of the world once regarded as gay havens. The magazine also has a fascinating feature on gay life in China and a review of the recently published biography of the UK gay atheist mathematician and computer scientist Alan Turing, who broke the NAZI Enigma code, thereby helping shorten World War 11.
