Immigrant 'not effeminate enough' to be gay and to qualify for asylum.

The only thing I can say is - oh for Gods sake. No point in wittering on about diversity training. Sack the old fool.

With apologies in advance - Has the silly old fool never seen any of the gay comic strips where one of the partners is a very machismo male? This comment is probably just as much of stereotype in it's way, but I know gay men who are limp wristed and flounce, but I also know several who would "look normal" to this judge and my only problem is that the gorgeous guys wouldn't be interested in me. :(

Uh-huh, just like Hunky!

Matthew Bourne commented about the male swans in his production of Swan Lake " Are my male swans only attractive to gay men?" as I was trying to stop drooling!!!!!

I think those elves look much more fun than the usual stereotyped elf. Queenie looks like Lily Savage.
I am sure we managed so much better without all this diversity training. If you are gay you are gay and the way you portray yourself shouldn't matter one jot if you are trying to escape from somewhere. It's nearly as daft as saying to an asylum seeker, you can't be a solicitor as you haven't got a suit on and where is your briefcase.

OH dragged me along to see Matthew Bournes Swan Lake, amazing, and she certainly admired the men

Meanwhile, the cure for all our inner turmoil. Just drink concrete.
