You'll need to engage your sense of humour for this but I think the gay revolution is great.
It could be the answer to world over population. ;)
Not a fan of any sort of racism.

Nothing wrong with it at all as you say, and the "pink pound" is worth a lot to the economy. it is sad that in this century so many people are still so racist, without seemingly having a reason to be.
Apart from the smell of the marijuana which is foul, just think how much in tax could be gathered in if it was legalised.

As long as the normal smoking ban applies - I don't want to "secondary smoke" cannabis :o :shock: :-)03

Two extraordinary stories Marigold. And no, I think Lerwick would struggle with a venue of this ilk. I hear that there is an LGBTQ social group that meets in the theatre bar but evenings out in Lerwick are completely beyond us remote islanders.
Also I have doubts about ghettoisation. I’ve never felt the need for a club for blue eyed people or right handed people. :D

The first article is surprising not because of the nature of the club but that the local authority would protect it. How right on!
I’ve never been to such a place, not even as a voyeur/tourist because I was too scared. :shock:

I can’t see bigyetiman refusing to drive a bus with rainbow colours. I wonder what religion the actual bus driver was?

Phew, that's my Saturday nights out safe then :lol: :lol: :lol:
As for the bus story, I drove the Brexit bus once, and the Chelsea open topper when they won the European championship, and Arsenal' s one year. that story about the bus driver went around at work and general view was we are paid to do a job, and what is on the side of the bus is irrelevant, non of the Christian or Muslim drivers had a problem with it.

Indeed bym. I’m certainly not saying that all Christians or Moslems are homophobic. What I am saying is that probably the greatest single cause of homophobia in modern Britain is due to religious teaching.
Even the Dalai Lama has expressed some fairly homophobic views.

One would have to be inhuman not to feel compassion for the man. His coming to terms with his true nature must have been immensely painful.
Nevertheless his was a religion that has been the cause of pain/suicide to countless others. So if it’s another nail in the coffin then bring it on!
