Taipei Gay Pride March 2018

A reminder that this year’s Gay Pride Parade takes place on Saturday 27 October. Last year 120,000 turned up, an increase of nearly 50% from the year before. Although the Parade takes place on the afternoon with a mass concert to follow, there are major Circuit parties on Friday, Saturday and Sunday...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

I suspect CNN is not willing to have the Hitler/Nazi reference up on their site.

Re: Ian McKellan: Half Hollywood is Gay

I'm returning to McKellan having just seen an address he gave quite recently to the Oxford Union. In it he talks about various gay-related subjects, but the most fascinating is the part where he talks about his own youth when gay boys were pointed at and given the label "queer". He talks a...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

The key words she speaks following some clips of Trump's rants against fake news and the crooked media are (as far as I can hear) - Lemon: "How dangerous is this tone?" PR: "You know, here's the thing. Donald Trump and the people around him told us what they were going to do. Steve Ba...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

Someone has just posted a link from a private taping. I cannot find the official CNN video yet. The key section is from 1'24" to 2'20". The sound is very low.

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

A scathing attack on Trump on Don Lemon's CNN programme this morning by Ronald Reagan's daughter Petti Davis in which she unequivocally compared how Trump came to power with Hitler, and how, immediately after, the lack of opposition from his own party and his attacks on naysayers is exactly how Hitl...

"The Happy Prince" - latest Oscar Wilde movie gets excellent reviews

It's a bit hard to think of any other dead gay character barring royalty who has had so many movies made about him as Oscar Wilde. The latest - and according to reviews - arguably the best is "The Happy Prince". Although it was premiered at the Sundance Festival last October, I have not se...

Korea K-Pop Singer Finally Comes out as Gay

You'd think that amongst the many thousands of K-Pop singers a few have to be gay. But being a public figure and being gay in such a homophobic country as South Korea must be extremely difficult So well done to 22-year old Holland, a young singer who only made his debut this year and who has come ou...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

I have now finished the book I mentioned earlier - “Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money and how Russia helped Donald Trump Win” by Luke Harding. I can't pretend I fully understood all the detail but it is extensively researched. It is also perfectly obvious that Trump has been in hock to the Rus...
