Instinct Magazine is wrapping up the year as only Instinct can, and they’re starting things off on a very high note with their exclusive sit down with one of the gay community’s fiercest allies (and fiercest divas), Janet Jackson! After three decades of dominating the music world, Ms. Jackson made 2010 the year to really flex her acting muscles—and flex she did!
In “The Quiet Power Of A Drama Queen,” Janet talks candidly with Instinct’s editor in chief Mike Wood about her pair of emotionally charged roles this year, adding “author” to her multi-hyphenate talents and also clues us in on how she sees music fitting in with her growing and critically acclaimed acting career. And of course, being only the fourth female in 13-years to get her own Instinct cover, Janet also opens up about that long-standing connection to the gay community, as well as her commitment to HIV/AIDS advocacy.
As we all mark World AIDS Day, Instinct also examines the confusion surrounding “undetectable” statuses, as well as the medical advances in treatments that have occurred in 2010. Plus, Gay Travel News takes on two very different types of Santas this winter: Santa Fe and Santa Cruz. They also bundle up and head into the woods for their winter fashion feature, “River’s Edge.” And in Instinct tradition, the mag also roasts the people and moments that made this year one for the record books in their annual “Best & Worst” round-up, plus they’ve got your shopping covered with their “HoliGay Gift Guide” highlighting their favorite tech, decor and more.
All this, plus a chat with their favorite TV dad, a diva Christmas battle and their exciting announcement of the 2011 AIDS LifeCycle Team Instinct in the December 2010/January 2011 issue of Instinct Magazine—now available in print and in iPad and iPhone versions.
