Kele Okereke continues to publicly explore his sexuality ... this time as the buffed coverboy of the latest issue of Attitude, the glossy UKL homostyle magazine. The brilliant, 1980s "B-Boy" inspired bright colored editorial is lensed by fashion photographer Ellis Parrinder.
The Bloc Party frontman talks about his new solo album The Boxer, sexuality ... and sex. "I can't tell you the amount of times I've been approached by heterosexual men that identify with a straight lifestyle. I am a very sexual person. Sex is something that I have enjoyed since I was a teenager. I've had a lot of sex."
Okereke also discusses the gay men that he admires, such as James Baldwin, Freddie Mercury of Queen, Rupaul and the many late and ballroom personalities in Paris is Burning. "I watched it again a few years ago on YouTube. As soon as it finished started crying. You go to Wikipedia and all bar one are dead. And they died in such sad circumstances. But you watch the fil;m and they all have so much love."
Kele Okereke is not the magazine's first black cover but he becomes its first black openly gay cover. The cover and more images AFTER THE JUMP ...
