News & Comment | TQS Magazine – Part 11

A friend made an interesting comment to me this weekend. “Why is it that when you try and set a [queer] couple up, they assume the only reason you’ve tried is because you’ve found two people who are both gay?”

Here at The Queer Sphere we’re interested in all aspects of gay culture, inspired by the BettaKultcha presentation by Martin Carter, we thought we’d ask him to take us through the history of drag as well as put the spotlight on some of the drag queens that inspired him.

Outrage spread through the LGB community and the media when two men were allegedly asked to leave a pub for a simple peck on the lips. But was their reaction far too over the top?

There’s plenty more fish on the screen, right?

A lot of gay men find it hard to meet other gay men due to the obvious problem of how do you tell if a guy is gay? Along comes the age of the Smartphone and in steps Grindr, a dating application launched in 2009 which allows gay and bisexual men to find and chat to each other by location.

Since it’s Mothers’ Day here at The Queer Sphere we thought we’d have a look at the important and often scary moment in every gay person’s life – coming out to mum

Every good queer has their “boom, and that’s when I knew I was a gay” moment. Don’t they?

There are many anti-homophobia videos out there but few as well made and touching as this, please give it a watch:

We ask if the plight of the Queer community has anything in common with that of red haired people?
