Latino Seguro

Latino Seguro

Are you Latino? Gay? Trans? Latino Seguro is an innovative new HIV prevention programme created and run by Latin Americans, for Latin Americans right here in London.

Community – Stonewall Housing

Community – Stonewall Housing

Shockingly, almost a quarter of homeless people are LGBT. They represent a portion of the population, and a part of our community, who have been failed by the government and by society. It’s interesting, and quite telling, to consider the reasons behind this. It hints at a darker undertone to treatment of LGBT people in our allegedly liberal, free-thinking society.

It’s Time We Talk About Gay Sex And Consent

It’s Time We Talk About Gay Sex And Consent

EMERGENCY: It’s a new Chloe video!

If you're not familiar with Drew Droege's iconic parodies of indie film actress slash fashion designer slash consumer of organically sourced Freetrade desserts Chloe Sevigny, then it's time to educate yourself. And if you're not familiar with Chloe Sevigny, GO TO HER IMDB PAGE AND PACK A LUNCH (get the reference Drew?). This series of camp cult classic videos are perfect to watch whilst spilling vodka and laughing like a dancing church mouse at five in the morning. She does everything from rediscovering oregano, to avoiding the colour white. She once attended the Third Annual Memorial For Ideas, sponsored by Acura, Prilosec and Goghurt Squirts. We want to go to that. The most exciting thing we've attended lately was the opening of this browser window. Anyway in THIS one, she educates us on the many faults of litter. Which means "A cluster of young born to a mammal". It also means trash.

Adore Delano is kind of amazing. Aside from being one of the most entertaining contestants Drag Race has ever seen, she also put out a total barnstormer of an album, full of bona-fide big jams and legit love songs. James Egan woke her up early to have a chat about her UK tour, where she’ll be hitting the Clapham Grand on August 6th with a balls to the wall drag rock show. Get your tickets now, god damn it!
