Here's some useful pre-holiday reading if you want to know where they are most promiscuous and where sex venues get the best results (France, Netherlands) or where they have least anal sex (Baltic countries), most check-ups (UK) or safest sex (Alpine countries).Click the headline for our pick of the European MSM Internet Survey comparing sexual habits of over 170,000 gay men in 38 European countries.
Whilst the EDL are out fighting them Muslamic infidels, you might be forgiven for worrying that we'd taken our eye off the BNP. You needn’t worry. They’re f*cking themselves over rather nicely without our help.
"Continue reading" for some thoroughly bad politics...
Spotted in the entrance halls at St George Wharf: posters soliciting residents views on Fire and Area. We can't imagine straight locals going out of their way to support local gay nightclubs so we imagine overwhelmingly negative feedback - will the smaller gay vote come out in favour?
As they gather an evidence base against clubs, we do fear this puts all venues in the firing line - this 'feedback' will be in the top drawer whenever there's a problem perceived with any venue.
We know a gay man's life isn't all glamour with you flirting between clubs in lovely cabs. Sometimes there's nothing for it but the friggin' night bus. Fewer things are less fun than standing at the reality bus stop of shame when just ten minutes ago you were in the frisky nightclub bubble. Well, good news. TfL have launched a service where you can get live bus departure info for every stop in London. It's a test site right now but it works - live info, not the schedule. The mobile version is here...
Meanwhile, here's some news on Obama's high speed rail compromise:
Irony can be funny except when it's accompanied by un-Islamic threats of violence from the very ignorant grunts you're fighting for. Yip, Peter Tatchell got abuse from local "Muslim" thugs at his demonstration supporting them against EDL.
Tatchell's side of events is below but in short the same old NO GAYS IN THE EAST END crap surfaced from local idiots using religion as a hate tool. Perhaps they should have stopped reading Tatchell's banners and read up on what Mohammed actually thought so they can ignore the crap they've been taught. Organised religion really does a lot to answer for: wankers mainly.
The Market Tavern, A:M, Beyond and many other clubs have called the base of the Market Towers (One Nine Elms) home over the years. Well, the owners want to demolish the 22 storey pile of 70s beige and replace it with something new... yes, more teeny weeny "luxury" (no outside loo!) flats.
There are currently seven skyscrapers bidding to go up in Vauxhall - if you didn't see much daylight there before... Interestingly, nothing can proceed until they figure out how people would actually walk between them what with that gorgeous sexy sounding "gyratory".
History: the property, built in 1973 as administrative offices for the new Covent Garden Market, comprises two towers. Yip, they needed that much space before computers and stuff.
We're sure this isn't typical, but it's gruesome: A 21 year old in Murmansk, Russia picked up a man on a gay dating date site invited him home, stabbed him to death and ate him. Investigators said "the defendant wanted to try eating at least 10 people". "Nothing like this has happened in Murmansk for 20 years," they added :-(
Perhaps it's not so rare: Other cases were in Moscow in May this year and St. Petersburg in 2009 when the accused pair said they were "very hungry". More on Rianovosti.
