The official MySpace page of gay lifestyle title attitude has announced that the magazine will return to the shelves this Friday.

Despite attempts to contact the editorial team at attitude, PinkNews.co.uk has been unable to ascertain what will be done to compensate subscribers to the magazine who did not receive copies in December or January.

Readers contacted PinkNews.co.uk at the start of this month to ask why the January edition had not appeared in the shops. There was confusion as to the future of the magazine.

attitude’s MySpace page says: “The best gay magazine in the world! We’re back, back, back baby.

“With a bang! The February issue features a naked McFly, a pissed off Diana Ross and a world exclusive as Kele Okereke of Bloc Party discusses his sexuality. Plus boys, boys, boys.”

The February editon features pop band McFly as the cover stars. This follows a long tradition at attitude of featuring heterosexuals on its cover.
