Brexiteers want £500,000 to make Big Ben to bong. This is how many vulnerable LGBT people that money could help

Boris Johnson is considering setting up a public fund to raise £500,000 so Big Ben can symbolically ‘bong’ ten times on the night Brexit is passed – because he apparently can’t think of anything better to do with the money. The world famous clocktower is currently undergoing renovation and would require the installation of a temporary floor for the 13-tonne bell to ring on January 31. Although the ridiculous idea was nixed by parliamentary authorities due to the massive financial and logistical issues – “You are talking about 50 grand...

Piers Morgan tells Ruth Davidson how he voted in the general election and it’ll come as little surprise

Piers Morgan has revealed who he voted for in last year’s general election, and it won’t come as much of a surprise. In an interview with lesbian former leader of the Scottish Conservative Party Ruth Davidson on LBC Radio, Morgan revealed that he – gasp – voted for Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party. Unsurprisingly, Morgan chose not to address Johnson’s track-record on LGBT+ rights – which includes calling gay men “tank-topped bum boys” – nor did he mention the Conservatives’ troubled history with the LGBT+ community. Instead, Piers Morgan explained that...

Boris Johnson adviser Dominic Cummings says Westminster doesn’t need any more ‘drivel’ about gender identity

Dominic Cummings, Boris Johnson’s top adviser, has written a rambling blog post about jobs at Number 10 – but says Westminster doesn’t need any more “drivel” about gender identity. Vowing to eliminate “blah blah” gender-identity diversity targets from Number 10, Cummings said that people who “babble” about gender identity need not apply. In the post, which said “we’re hiring” and called for “weirdos and misfits” to apply, Cummings made it clear that when he talked about wanting to recruit diverse candidates, he did not mean in terms of gender identity. “People...

Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds to spend Christmas on Caribbean island where it’s illegal to be gay

UK prime minister Boris Johnson will spend his Christmas holiday on a Caribbean island where being LGBT+ is illegal. Johnson and his girlfriend, Carrie Symonds, are expected to spend Christmas Day in 10 Downing Street before flying to the island of Mustique, the Evening Standard reports. Mustique, just south of St Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean, is a small private island that’s also been the holiday destination of several members of the British royal family. Boris Johnson and Symonds will be staying with the Von Bismark family, who...

Boris Johnson has passed his Brexit deal. This is what it could mean for LGBT rights

Boris Johnson has passed his Withdrawal Agreement Bill (WAB), paving the way for the UK to Brexit on January 31, 2020. But what does it all mean for LGBT+ rights? MPs voted the bill through on its second reading by 358 to 234, a majority of 124. This means that the WAB will now move to a committee stage, where it will be scrutinised further. It must also pass through the House of Lords, but it is widely expected to be made law in time for the current Brexit deadline...

The Boris Johnson landslide spared us trans-inclusive Christmas carols, according to this Times journalist

If Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had won last week’s general election, the British public could have been forced to sing Christmas carols that recognise the existence of non-binary people, Giles Coren wrote today for The Times. In a piece apparently mocking the fact that some non-binary people use they/them pronouns, Coren wrote that a Corbyn win might have “had us all singing… ‘We Three Male-Identifying Non-Binary Citizens (he/him) of Orient Are’.” Coren was writing about a school in east London that has removed the word “Lord” from Christmas carol ‘Away...
