It's easy to forget how bad things were and this lady really took hope from gay men and introduced the first anti-gay legislation in the UK for 100 hundred years. Tatchell's take's worth a quick read as antedote to the revisionist reviews doing the rounds...
Folks of a certain age might be gutted to hear that Turnmills is just a hole in the ground now. Yes, they've torn it down and dug a hole. We reckon the place is hallowed ground and hope the ghosts of clubbers past haunt the future officer workers due to populate it.... Poltergeist style - go toward the strobe light! Here's the replacement...
Thatcher's in the news, HIV rates are on the up... and health funding's being cut. Not the 80s, today.
GMFA have said they've lost their funding for HIV information services. There has been a long on-going debate about whether their work actually worked but there's no doubt that their info on living with the virus has been helpful for many.
It's the latest in a long line of cuts to HIV funding. Some folks seem to think just because you can pop some pills that's it. That aint it. The pill's are frighteningly expensive, popping them doesn't change other risky (physical and mentally) behaviours nor help find ways of bringing the transmission rates down.
Well we heard of gaydar but bottomdar? Canadian scientists Konstantin O. Tskhay and Nicholas O. Rule tell us that Canadians can tell thether you're a top or bottom by just looking at your face.
They also say "In intercourse between men, one of the partners typically assumes the role of an insertive partner (top) while the other assumes a receptive role (bottom)." Maybe their research is flawed... More such drivel in the Archives of Sexual Behaviour.
Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead from The Wizard of Ozis about the enter the top 10. Apparently since Thatcher died, and spurred on by a Facebook campaign, folks have been buying three versions of it.
The Official Charts Company said: "As of midnight last night (Tuesday, April 9) Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead, credited to the Wizard Of Oz Film Cast, has sold over 10,600 copies, which is roughly 5,000 copies away from a Top 3 placing at this mid-way stage."
The version people need to buy to get it to No.1 is the 51 seconds long one. That Official Charts Company says that it's technically a song and can take the No. 1 slot. It costs 79p.

On Monday's Today Programme David Bennett, a market trader, said that after his housing benefit had been cut, he lives on £53 per week. The next interviewee was Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith, who was defending the changes. The interviewer then asked him if he could live on this amount. He replied: "If I had to, I would."

Here's a bored at lunchtime wheeze. The BBC has defined some new social classes. They are:
Elite - the most privileged group in the UK, distinct from the other six classes through its wealth. This group has the highest levels of all three capitals
Established middle class - the second wealthiest, scoring highly on all three capitals. The largest and most gregarious group, scoring second highest for cultural capital
Technical middle class - a small, distinctive new class group which is prosperous but scores low for social and cultural capital. Distinguished by its social isolation and cultural apathy
New affluent workers - a young class group which is socially and culturally active, with middling levels of economic capital
Traditional working class - scores low on all forms of capital, but is not completely deprived. Its members have reasonably high house values, explained by this group having the oldest average age at 66
Emergent service workers - a new, young, urban group which is relatively poor but has high social and cultural capital
Precariat, or precarious proletariat - the poorest, most deprived class, scoring low for social and cultural capital
You can take the survey here. We suspect the gay gene might bump you up one or two notches given given the measures include social and cultural appettites.
