Captain’s Log 29.12.09
Captain’s log is a periodic message to Mothership’s logged in members which is copied into the Mothership Blog
We’ve just created two new categories in the Mothership Gay Forums - Club 18-35 General and Club 18-35 Sex
The idea is to provide an area where our younger members can hang out when they would rather have the company of guys around their own age.

But I especially notice it in gay men. Read the rest of this entry

The latest T Mobile advert in Trafalgar Square has been criticised on UK gay forums
The new advert by T Mobile set in London’s Trafalgar Square seems to be getting a consistent thumbs down from the gay community. Posts across several gay forums have criticised T Mobile’s latest advert, where an estimated 13,000 members of the public were filmed singing ‘Hey Jude’ on Thursday 30 April.
The commercial, first screened last night during Britain’s Got Talent, was the latest of T Mobile’s adventurous ads which feature mass participation by members of the public at famous London landmarks. However the 2 minute commercial, which included a surprise appearance by the american pop star Pink, has taken a knocking on gay forums. Read the rest of this entry
