About this deal

I don’t really remember what exactly happened between us or how far we went as I was pretty drunk, but I eventually made it back home in one piece, and never saw him again! I knew he was gay, but I made it clear to him that I wasn’t (back then I was still deep in the closet). We both knew what was going on in between the other’s legs and we were tactfully trying to readjust without drawing too many odd looks…it sure is difficult trying to walk when you're trying to suppress a raging hard on whilst trying to look like a gentleman at the same time!

This was something which we'd often do with friends so we both knew it wouldn't raise any suspicions with our families.

It’s particularly unique because it not only has stories featuring gay men, but also lesbian gay stories, bıseҳual and transgender. It’s about Ennis and Jack who take on a job to look after sheep in the Brokeback mountains in the American West (think the Rocky Mountains in Wyoming). After prison, he travelled in Europe and reunited briefly with Douglas but died three years after his release. It was a long journey that began with confronting thoughts I had going on in my head like “Being gay is wrong”, “I don’t want to dress up in women’s clothes so surely I can’t be gay!

The Line of Beauty is a classic British novel about class, politics, and freedom during the Thatcher's years in the 1980s. So, my lesson from this story is that it is good to enjoy yourself, but young people should be super cautious, especially when heavy drinking is involved. However, the cherry on top is when it’s a gay movie, one we can not only relate to but which also teach us about issues faced by our LGBTQ brothers and sisters around the world. The Handsome Prince is a bawdy collection of bedtime stories brimming with classic fairy tale characters, reimagined and recast for any man who has dreamt of the day his prince will come. A jumbled mixture of Yiddish, Italian, lingua franca and backslang (saying words as if spelt backwards), polari allowed gay men to communicate and identify themselves as homosexual without risking exposure or censure.The next time he came to deliver a package to our house, he handed me, with a smirk, a small note with his phone number written on it!

It is truly a beautiful movie, so well-acted and with a terrific soundtrack, especially Bruce Springsteen’s “Streets of Philadelphia”. Hall later formed a long-term relationship with Batten’s cousin, Lady Una Troubridge, living with her from 1918 until Hall’s death in 1943.Gary was working hard to support his mum and siblings, but it was beginning to get too much for him to deal with. The narrative that gay bars were becoming obsolete did not account for the popularity of many of the venues that closed as made clear by the multitude of LGBTQ activist groups such as Friends of the Joiners Arms in London and Friends of Eden and Birmingham Gay Village in Birmingham which formed to actively resist closure.
