Friends of The Joiners Arms Celebrates Winning Landmark Campaign

Tower Hamlets Council today granted a key victory to the Friends of the Joiners Arms campaign, insisting that developers must provide a late-license LGBTQ+ venue in plans that would otherwise see the iconic East End pub demolished without replacement. Councillors voted unanimously to commit developers to grant a 25 year lease for an LGBTQ+ venue, replicating the late operating hours of the original venue (The former opening times of the Joiners Arms were 4am on weekends, 3am Thursdays and Sundays, and 2am Monday to Wednesday), and insisting the GLA explore ways for “maintaining a local link to elected representatives, and to the LGBTQ+ community” in selecting an operator for the venue.

Pride in London is called to account by the Community Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board today released its post-event report on Pride in London. I have a mixture of emotions about it. I’m happy to see the experiences and feelings of many of the community expressed in writing, and it certainly completely confirms the experiences of all those who contacted me in frustration/upset/discontent in the run up to Pride; however I’m also sad. I love London, and I love Pride – but I love a Pride that is as diverse and inclusive as the LGBT community with which I feel a part of and this year I have never felt so distant from Pride.

Being Bi at Pride

It’s not always safe under that purple flag

Last month marked the 12th anniversary of the death of Brenda Howard, also known as “The Mother of Pride”. She was called this thanks to her role in coordinating the 1970 Christopher Street Liberation Rally, marking the year anniversary of the Stonewall riots. Yep, you got it – the first ever Pride march. Brenda was, incidentally, bisexual.

Rotterdam rocks at The Arts Theatre

2017 is the year of lesbian theatre. In London alone this year there have been over 20 plays taking place across London and Brighton alone, including Her Aching Heart, The Elephant Girls and Joan. I’ve been reviewing lesbian-themed theatre now for around 6 years in the city and whilst most of it is fringe theatre in theatres above pubs; the quality is growing and growing and Rotterdam is certainly aiming for the top spot, and is absolutely worthy of its current home in The Arts Theatre.

Cinebra at Brighton Fringe

Guiding us through the show are lovable characters Megan and Sophie, two seventeen year old girls who LOVE horror films. But the cabaret-cum-theatre show is less about their relationship to the films, and more about the relationship between the pair.

Being bi and with a guy

There’s no denying it – relationships truly define us. And unfortunately, if you’re bisexual, your identity can easily be misread.

Date a female-spectrum person and they assume you’re a lesbian, date a male-spectrum person and they assume you’re heterosexual.
