Re: Gay Icons 4 : "Berlin was Boys!"

I just watched that TV movie "Christopher and His Kind". I enjoyed most of it, but feel it does not really portray Berlin's gay scene as I imagine it to have been. Time inevitably meant the movie could only concentrate on two - the Cosy Corner and the one where Sally Bowles sang. The Cosy ...

Gay Icons 5: “Mad About The Boy” and A Right Royal Scandal

Mad about the boy I know it's stupid to be mad about the boy I'm so ashamed of it But must admit The sleepless nights I've had about the boy In a 1999 article marking the 100th anniversary of the birth of Noël Coward, TIME magazine noted that “no other 20th century figure approached Coward’s creativ...

Gay Icons 4 : "Berlin was Boys!"

"Good authors too who once knew better words Now only use four-letter words Writing prose. Anything goes." These lyrics from the opening of Cole Porter's wonderful 1934 musical "Anything Goes" could well have been written with the writer and novelist Christopher Isherwood in mind...

I wouldn't want either of them, but at least for now I think Pence is the lesser of the evils

Be careful what you wish for. That little skunk would probably do a Ford - pardon his former boss!

Re: Thailand Ranks # 1 at Last

I don’t drive in Thailand and am glad I don’t. The general standard of driving is appalling, there is little consideration for other drivers (how many people turning left or right actually bother with a light signal or wait until they are about to turn?) and lane discipline is frightening!

Gay Icons 3: “The High Priest of Tease.”

When police finally broke into the tiny, dirty bedsit apartment in North London, even the most hardened were nauseated by what they witnessed. Blood was everywhere. Lying on the bed was the body of the younger of the two men, his head cratered as a result of nine fierce blows from the hammer that la...

Re: Another Sunee Bar Closes

. . . counting Chaing Mai as a gay destination was your call. Sorry JtF but it was not my call. I was merely posting a link to another's call. Notwithstanding pollution at other times, I will happily continue to visit Chiang Mai even though not as a gay tourist. Perhaps I am more immune since I liv...
