10 bisexual films that you need to watch

Here’s our list of films that shine a light on some much-loved bisexual characters. Bi-erasure has always been a prominent issue in mainstream media.

When a hotel took over an entire town in Brazil…

“Passion is the driver of everything in Brazil,” says Bob, the bisexual owner of UXUA (pronounced ‘oo-shoe-er’) Casa Hotel and Spa in Trancoso, in beachy, hippyish Bahia. We’re lounging in the beautiful grounds of the… not really hotel because accommodations are scattered all over the tiny town, on a lazy rainy day, weather that we’ve chosen to ignore. “Brazil is a beauty factory,” says Bob, an American, maybe in his 40s, in a neon vest, some pyjama-style pants and high-tops as he tickles the English Bull Terrier he drags around...

Paris’s Le Marais has got its mojo back

If you’re bored of Paris, why not go to Le Marais? Yes, it’s right in the middle of Paris but it’s a place all its own. What could be handier? If your perfect idea of Paris is perfect little winding cobbled lanes with perfect little 17th century buildings leaning into each other and perfect little boutiques selling gorgeous things and emanating perfect smells of things being cooked in butter. Of perfect little cafes with everyone sitting outside and lots of impossibly handsome and well-dressed people, then it’s Le Marais you’ve...

The Fontenay, Hamburg will take your breath away

Where is it? A prime spot in the smartest part of town, overlooking Hamburg’s big bit of wet, Lake Alster. Take the steamboat if you’re really into showy arrivals. Why so lovely? Where once stood raggedy old, scratchy old digs now rises Hamburg’s most beautiful hotel. A vision in three interlocking swirls designed by architect Jan Störmer, there’s a ridiculously impressive central atrium that will take your breath away – and your neck if you’re not careful. Light-filled, crisp, floor-to-ceiling everything, and rammed with all the right (custom-made) furniture, it’s...
