Olly Alexander Wears Jockstraps for Candid Interview with Paper
For their Pride issue, Paper magazine has recruited one of the most prominent queer voices in music today. Years and Years front man Olly Alexander stripped down to a variety of jockstraps and Versace garms before draping himself over a model; very Gianni, dahling.
Olly talks frankly about being a queer artist in current times:
“We wouldn’t be where we are today without all the gay artists that have come before us and broken down so many barriers. But barriers aren’t gone.”
“I would hesitate to say,” he goes on, “Yes, I’m engineering this brave new frontier of queer music to infiltrate the masses with my gay agenda.”
Speaking of his new album San Palo, Olly says that he couldn’t have written his latest work a decade ago.
