When Matthew Todd, editor of the bestselling gay lifestyle magazine Attitude, approached broadcaster and political pundit Iain Dale asking him to write a monthly column for the publication, Dale did not have to think twice about his answer. That was back in early 2013 and, since then, Dale has written over twenty columns – or 'gay shorts' – on a variety of subjects appealing to Attitude's readership and beyond. Although initially brought on board to bring more politics to the magazine than its usual contributors, Dale's columns have strayed well beyond the realms of his briefing. Ranging from the emotional and personal to the humorous and sarcastic, his writing is always thought-provoking and entertaining. Now, in one accessible volume, comes a compilation of Dale's best pieces in this fantastic magazine. If you've never read Attitude before, here is all the encouragement you need to take out a subscription!
