First they will start by the buildings south of Heygate Street.
That should happen by the end of this year. Continue reading
I feel great sorrow over the pain that has been caused when my words were misconstrued." From Advocate.com .
Fagburn never ceases to be amazed how easy it is to get away with scams like this in the media.
That's presuming this one isn't a hoax, of course. Continue reading
Although much of the content means diddly-all to people outside America, as gay fluff goes it's quite well-done and fun gay fluff. Continue reading
But I get letters from young people who've just come out, and they say they like the fact that I'm not overtly gay. For me that's just the norm - it's how I live my life - and because I came out early but my success is quite recent, I've never had to sneak around or go through the big 'open the closet' moment. I've never had to say, 'Please don't ask me about that.' It would be exhausting to have to be so furtive.
That must be horrible." Russell Tovey in the Sunday Express.
Fagburn may be going out on a limb here, but I would quite happily "do" Big Ears. Continue reading
The fact that Thatcher voted in favour of partially decriminalising homosexuality in 1967 has been endlessly cited by idiots as proof that she must have (secretly?) loved The Gays.
Well, as Matthew Todd put the counter argument in a Guardian piece; "Whoop-dee-doo". Continue reading
Hommen staged its biggest protest so far outside Paris busy Saint-Lazare train station on Tuesday evening. A group of shirtless, masked men waved the tricolour and chanted outside the major rail hub in the French capital, to both applause and booing from passersby. Their torsos painted with messages such as Freedom , Protect Kids , and Free Speech , some chanted Democracy!
while others were symbolically gagged by a suited man bearing a Fran ois Hollande mask. At our first event, there were 20 of us. On Tuesday April 3rd at Saint-Lazare, there were 30, said Henri.
Our goal is to oppose gay marriage. The French people have expressed themselves with historic demonstrations against it, and the government s only response has been violence, he said, referring to the use of tear gas at protestors during a rally in the capital last month... TheLocal.com, Paris.
I have no idea if this is a joke or not - I'm happy either way, to be honest.

Sometimes we go back home to catch up with each other and our families. They are still there but Newarthill is unrecognisable. Ravenscraig s great steel gates were padlocked for ever in 1992 and now they are gone, along with the cooling towers that used to puff clouds into the sky.
There s only one sunset now. In her declining years, the woman held responsible could often be found in one of the smaller London parks, walking slowly on the arm of a paid companion like an aged aunt from a PG Wodehouse novel. Her platinum helmet was a gentle champagne-coloured halo and few passers-by would have guessed that she was once the most powerful woman in the world.
Sometimes, I thought about going to that park to watch her from afar. Not to trouble her or talk to her, but to see her in person just once before she went. Yes, she smashed the miners and closed Ravenscraig.
Yes, she created Clause 28 to prohibit the teaching of homosexuality not very successfully in my case. She did all that and many other things she became hated for. But she also led by example, making a hero of the individual and a cult of the striver.
That gave me the escape ladder from the world I hated. It made it possible for me to run away and never look back. And for that, I will for ever be grateful.
Barf. The Mail has found an ex-working class gayer who liked Maggie Thatcher. And it's not David Starkey or Andrew Pierce!
It's another gay Uncle Tom and "useful idiot"; some journalist I've never heard of called Damian Barr.
He also hates the working-class world he's so proud he escaped from - and makes it sound positively ghastly.
Oh well, another name to be added to my pink lamp-post list of collaborationists. Continue reading
