Virgin Active are blocking internet access in their gyms to gay websites like Pink Paper
Pink Paper Website Censored by Virgin Active Gyms
Pink Paper have the hump with Virgin Active gyms. Apparently Virgin’s gyms have been blocking their site from being viewed on their in-gym internet terminals.
One of Pink Paper’s readers tried to access the site after a workout and was met with a message saying it had been blocked. The message went on to read:
“…our internet terminals can be used by young children and we have a moral obligation to parents and guardians to ensure unsuitable content is not available via our network.”
Very section 28! Read the rest of this entry

Repent Your Homophobia Says Tatchell to Anti-Gay Bishop
Bishop Nazir-Ali has been called upon to repent for his homophobia
The human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell has called upon the outspoken Bishop of Rochester to repent his homophobia, after Bishop Nazir-Ali’s interview in today’s Sunday Telegraph in which he says homosexuals should “repent and be changed”.
Speaking today Tatchell said
“As an Asian man, the Bishop knows the pain of racial prejudice. I am shocked that he wants to inflict similar prejudice on gay people.
“Homophobia is a social and moral evil, just like racism. Bigotry, even in the guise of religion, has no place in a compassionate, caring society.
“I call on the Bishop to repent his homophobia. His prejudice goes against Christ’s gospel of love and compassion.
“This is merely the latest of many homophobic outbursts by the Bishop. He is a long-time vociferous opponent of gay quality and a strident supporter of legal discrimination against homosexuals. Read the rest of this entry

Gay Glastonbury? "It doesn't really matter about race, religion, sexuality..."
Glastonbury 2009 - a Mothership Gay Dating Member’s Diary
Mothership Gay Dating member longhairedrocker reports on this year’s Glastonbury from a gay man’s perspective.
I’ve been home 3 days now since the Glastonbury Festival and I’m only just about recovered!
Glastonbury Festival 2009
The journey to Glastonbury is on Wednesday. You have to go quite early to get a good camping spot and for us it was by train. Unfortunately, on arriving at the local station we had to wait 4 long hours in the sun for the shuttle bus. On the plus side we did talk to some fit lads in the queue, though of course never saw them again for the whole weekend. On Wednesday night there is the option to spend the night raving with everyone off their heads at the stone circle, but it was raining…so it was drinks by the campfire and then bed.
