Diego a successful Fashion Photographer in Caracas has commitment phobia but the very night he is about to tell Fabrizio his Doctor boyfriend that he will move in with him after all, is the same night that Fabrizio is the victim of a vicious fatal gay bashing. It is also the same night that Armando, his estranged teenage son, turns up from Spain to stay with him for a few months whilst his mother goes to London to study for a Masters degree.

But it's quite understandable in his case as when she remarried he gained hottie Josh Brolin as a step-brother. Now he and his mother have made music together, but then that was bound to happen one day as his Ma is the singing superstar/diva Barbra Striesand. Jason Gould, actor, director, producer, writer and singer and son of Elliot Gould has recorded the Irving Berlin standard How Deep Is The Ocean as a Duet with Babs for her new album ‘Partners’ …. And its actually very good. Take a listen …


P.S. Could this be a new trend … and maybe Cher and Chaz Bono are next?

Four of the top 6 Universities in the UK for gay friendly policies are Northern Universities.

by Newsdesk | 17th September 2014




As thousands of new gay, lesbian, bi and trans students prepare for their first term at university, Stonewall has produced a league table of the best Universities in the UK for LGBT policies and practices.


Only one of the top 6 is in the South-east, which was University of Essex.


Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU), Sheffield Hallam University, University of Essex, University of Glasgow and York St John University were all commended for their policies for LGBTs.


In Wales Stonewall scored Cardiff University full marks.


Last year just two universities topped the list, Liverpool Hohn Moores and Cardiff, both of which scored 10/10.


Gay By Degree 2015 measures each university against 10 criteria to show how well they support their gay students. The checklist includes whether the university has a policy to tackle homophobic bullying, whether there are societies and events for LGBT students, and what steps they take to support lesbian, gay and bisexual staff.


Ruth Hunt, Chief Executive said: ‘There are a record number of university places available this year and prospective students who are lesbian, gay or bisexual will want to study where they will be supported and developed. Particular congratulations are due to Cardiff University, University of Essex, University of Glasgow, Liverpool John Moores University, Sheffield Hallam University and York St John University for being the only universities in Britain to score full marks.

‘It’s particularly concerning that only 35 universities are monitoring student’s sexual orientation leaving them no way of telling if they’re providing a positive experience for gay students. We hope that this year’s guide prompts universities to do more to make campuses a welcoming place for all students.’


A further 11 universities met nine out of the ten criteria. Universities were assessed against the availability of information on their main or student websites so that prospective students can make an informed decision.


Prospective students can search Gay By Degree to help inform their university options at www.gaybydegree.org.uk

This year's NY celebrations in London will make history, by becoming a paid for event and strictly ticketed for the first time.

by Newsdesk | 17th September 2014




According to the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, around 500,000 people turned up to hear the bongs of Big Ben at the stroke of midnight this year putting tremendous stresses on services including police and transport.


Mayor Johnson announced today that the famous event by Southbank will now be ticketed to limit the numbers to 100,000. The public will be able to book up to four tickets.


For £10 you will be guaranteed a good view of the celebrations and a 'better visitor experience.'


Tickets will be available from Friday 26th September. According to a statement from the Mayor's office 'Ticketing is not for profit - every penny of the £10 administration fee will be used to pay for the ticketing itself, and the extra infrastructure the decision to ticket will bring.'


The Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: 'London's New Year's Eve fireworks are phenomenally popular, not just in the capital, but across the world and we want to ensure it continues to be a safe, enjoyable and sustainable event for the long-term. After consulting with our partners, we are introducing ticketing to help manage crowd numbers and create a better experience on the night. For anyone without a ticket the fireworks are again being shown live and in full on television, meaning you can watch it in glorious HD colour without missing a single second. And don't forget, there are hundreds of other New Year's Eve celebrations to enjoy in bars, restaurants and clubs across the capital.'

The Mayor's decision has the full support of the emergency services, the relevant local authorities and other key stakeholders.

London isn't the only city to charge for its celebrations. Ticketing the Edinburgh Hogmanay celebrations has led to a steady reduction in crowd numbers to more manageable levels. There is a £20 administration charge. In Sydney, Australia ticketing is in place for the prime viewing areas, including Sydney Opera House, Royal Botanic Garden & Domain Trust, Taronga Zoo and National Parks & Wildlife Services, however the wide and harbour location event footprint makes the Sydney celebrations a different operation to London, which is much more compact.

From the very beginning of her career as a chorus girl in theatres and cabarets of 1920s Weimar Berlin Marlene Dietrich boasted a gay following. In one of her early revues she sang a duet with co-star Margot Lion called “My Best Girlfriend” in which both sported a corsage of violets– the signal in those days for lesbianism.
