This week, few of us who find ourselves on the point of boarding a plane will be able to suppress our recall of the terrible Germanwings crash in the French Alps. However statistically safe modern flying is, this particular incident perpetrated by a suicidal pilot, is just another reminder, if it were needed, of the fragility of life. We share our sympathy with the many families mourning loved ones.

In fact, it was a family issue that caught our attention this month, in particular the quasi-suicidal posture on gay parenthood adopted by gay fashion designers Dolce and Gabbana. Out of touch and out of time would be an understatement. As would be "Slaughtered by Elton John." We reprise the battle lines.





Less controversially, we found our new Model of the Month embroiled in his university studies. A gallery of stunning shots of Paddy Mitchell awaits you.







As does the now regular feature, the Top Ten Images of the previous month, an opportunity to linger longer should you feel so inclined.

More stories will appear as Spring bursts around us here in northern Europe.


Happy browsing,
