Gay icons Rufus Wainwright and Jake Shears are currently gracing the cover of New York City’s Next magazine.

The black and white image is the work of acclaimed photographer Tim Hailand, who shot both singers for their respective One Day In The Life Of books.

Those books are part of series that started last year with Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe.

They compile intimate photos and exclusive text in a bid to raise money for charity – a percentage of which goes to a charity of the subject’s choice.

As a special bonus Jake’s book has a special intro by Elton John and even an afterword by Kylie Minogue.

Cherry Vanilla writes the intro for Rufus (below).

The books can be pre-ordered here.
