He's got issues

Meet Ollywood, the “Daddy Issues” editor & international party planner who loves Milan Christopher

British-born Los Angeles-dweller Ollywood, international party promoter and editor of NSFW zine Daddy Issuesis literally showing up all over the map.

The tatted stud is planning a pop-up party for March 31st at the Stud in San Francisco with other events slated for New York, West Hollywood and London.

Ollywood talked to GayCities about his magazine, Los Angeles and working with model Milan Christopher.

What can readers expect from Meet Me In The Flesh, the newest edition of Daddy Issues?

The issue is 84 pages of NSFW queer art and photography. We have stories shot in Australia, India, Paris, London, New York, Canada and Madrid.

Where did the theme come from?

There were a lot of Daddy-themed parties in LA, so it was kind of a joke on them. A lot of those parties are very hard core and don’t feel inclusive or diverse. So we want to create a party that was fun and sex-positive where everyone feels welcome.

What’s it like working with Milan Christopher, who’s on the cover of this issue?

He’s lovely — so handsome and so hot, amazing body.

What are your favorite spots to pre-party before a big night?

In LA I love Fubar, Mickys, Bar Mattachine. In London I love Dalston Superstore and The Glory. My dream is to own my own bar one day.

When you visit LA, which hotels are your favorite?

My favorite hotels in LA are The Standard because they do really great events and parties. But the roof of the Sunset Tower is very pretty.

What are your favorite places to eat before a night of partying?

I like sushi before going out because its not too greasy or heavy. But my fav places to eat in LA are Soho House and Laurel Hardware.

What are your favorite after-hours hangouts?

I like to get to bed early. But Ostbahnhof is a great after-hours party in LA.

What are your favorite gay bars in NYC?

House of Yes is where we are doing Daddy Issues. Moxy Hotel is cool. Dream downtown is very beautiful.

What’s your off-the-radar favorite hangout?

Marie’s Crisis NYC is not necessarily a gay bar, but its the gayest place on Earth and is just so, so fun.

What upcoming vacations do you have planned?

I’m going to Miami for a week with my boyfriend. We are doing a review for a magazine of what to do for a young gay couple in Miami, so I’m really excited to check out the scene there as I haven’t been before.

What’s your favorite Pride town? Why?

Palm Springs because the weather is unreal and its just beautiful.

Which “GayCities” are on your bucket list?

Tel Aviv. I love the men there!
