    Ohhhhh... I'm curious how this will turn out. When he was announced originally I liked the casting, but he left after the director and him didn't get along. BUT him taking over to get his way could be awesome (true art is often fort for) OR it could become rudderless/self-indulgent. This will definitely be on my radar.

    I'm always in a good mood after I visit Wilton Manors (LGBT neighborhood in my city).

    He really does get into character. I've not seen him attempt one like this but if he was as devoted, he could probably become Freddie.

    Ah I see, the link is broken or something. I wondered what you were so excited about.

    Sometimes I think I'd like to and other times I think fuck the bigots, I'm not running. They can leave.

    No place is perfect, it just depends on what issues one is looking at.

    Facebook really wants me to watch "Saturday Night at the Baths" on something called Fandor.

    Though the Sexual Offences Act 1967 decriminalised homosexuality, hundreds of thousands of men are still living with convinctions for "gross indecency" from entrapment by undercover police officers as late as the 1980s. Though Turing is the more popular name, I disagree with the concept of posthumous pardons, because it doesn't change the life of the convicted, merely relaxes people. But the fact is no-one should have a criminal record for false accusations and what is today not a crime. I wonder, how many gay people who had sex at 16/17 are still living with convictions? For my money, that slate should be wiped clean.

    Did you know that even though it isn't criminal any more, the disclosure and barring service in the UK, which grants a 'certificate' to allow you to work with children, vulnerable people and sensitive information relating to children and or vulnerable people (ie teaching, social work etc.) will still disclose acts committed under the various acts that made gay sex illegal.

    So it's possible that someone convicted could be barred from working in those professions, or at the least have to embarrassingly disclose them before they could work
