I just wanted to say how much I enjoy reading Out In The City each month, particularly your recent issue. I like the fact that despite being a free magazine, it’s not just about the commercial gay scene, and you also alert your readers to lots of other stuff that’s going on. Love your film reviews, and thank you for introducing me to Perfume Genius [pictured above] in your April issue. I checked out his music and loved it – and have already booked tickets to see him when he plays London in May. I also didn’t know anything about the Fringe! Film Festival, despite living in the East End, so was grateful to find out about that. My other favourite bits are the Agony Uncle page and ‘My London’. Anyway, just keep up the good work! Mark, Bow

I totally identify with the guy who wrote to your Agony Uncle complaining about his boyfriend wanting an open relationship [OITC – April 2012]. What is it with these guys? I understand that, after many years together, a couple might open out a relationship, but if you’ve just met someone and they want to have sex with other men… I just think that’s wrong. I was glad to read that your Agony Uncle felt that there’s nothing undesirable about monogamy. Too often I hear advice that people should just do what makes them happy – but being in a relationship always involves sacrifice and compromise – it’s not about having your cake and eating it!

it was a success. Since the LLG Film Festival lost some of its funding and no longer tours, I hope someone else manages to tour gay cinema It was great to see the film Weekend get a general (limited) cinema release, it was shown in Brighton at both the multiplex (Odeon) and Picturehouse cinema. I note that Fringe! was screening Young Soul Rebels, which I saw years ago. I note it is out on DVD and hope to catch it again soon. Ron, Brighton


I was interested to read your ‘My Body’ contributor, Gary [OITC – April 12]. Unlike many of the guys on that page, I think he really gave the best advice – embracing his workouts as playtime, and using his own body weight to help build muscle tone. He looked great, and it was nice to see a slightly older guy on the page too. Edward, Tufnell Park


Dear Out, being a great film fan, I was delighted to see you were sponsoring a film festival (Fringe! Film Festival). I hope
