I’ll be honest, it had been a while since I last picked up your magazine – and, wow, am glad I did. I guess it was that haunting Brad Pitt cover that drew me in, and it was an interview I couldn’t put down – to see a man open up about emotion and the pain he’s gone through, and to come out the other side, it was fascinating and really commendable. As men, we often avoid really opening up – even to those closest to us. After reading that, I feel better about some of the trivialities of my life and am concentrating on making sure I talk about things more. Elsewhere, I really enjoyed the ‘What If’ story, I learnt a lot from it, and the piece on Spider-man was funny and has me actually thinking about going to see it. As for Elon Musk – if he’s scared of AI, then I definitely am too! Thanks, GQ, I’ll be back from now on.
I’ve always been a fan of @gqaustralia but I must say, this month’s issue is a real stand-out. CHRIS FEATHER, VIA INSTAGRAM Great to have you in the mag, Chris. And know we are still recovering from the workout you put us through! Great issue this month – loved all the articles on innovation! I had no idea that Amazon was on its way over here, and as for my fitness, I think I’ll wait and see what happens next with VR, but thanks for the heads up! DOM, VIA EMAIL
Being from Perth, I was appalled to see Alan Joyce assaulted by someone opposed to his open, corporate support of gay marriage. I really enjoyed this interview – to read what he had to say on this issue and also to understand all he’s achieved with Qantas as an openly “gay Irishman”. Well done, Alan, Australian business needs more of your kind, and well done, GQ. WADE, VIA EMAIL
