Historically, gay men have engaged in intergenerational relationships -- among consenting adults -- probably more than straight people have. One reason is that we've had to find each other and teach each other about ourselves, and often that's been about older people teaching younger people.
Natalie Gumede is a good friend of mine. In recent months, I've seen a lot of stories about her in the press... On many of these occasions I have wanted to defend Natalie from these insane stories, but I have stopped myself for two reasons...
It makes sense to exhibit this kind of art in one of Soho's more rebellious corners. The space chosen by Vermilion Hook lies beneath Marshall Street in the basement salon belonging to designer and tailor, Mark Powell.
Binky and I have moved in together and it's been amazing. We have a lot of fun... too much fun. Admittedly, I was a little surprised by Alex wondering around in extremely skimpy boxers, but there has been no awkwardness since Alex has learned to wear trousers around the house.
See you later Black Friday! So long Cyber Monday! Today is Crap Friday. It is the day that all the things you ordered on Cyber Monday are due to arrive at your home or are ready for collection in store.
In trying to figure out whether the women depicted in the video are cool or whether cool is degrading/objectifying the Muslim female identity, we're clearly in a spin this week.
In a few hours I'll be on stage in Palestine - Bethlehem in the West Bank to be precise - performing the Messiah Complex live to a room full of Palestinians, and anyone else who's interested in seeing a comedy show that Russell Brand has deemed too dangerous for the Middle East.
Jude Law's performance as Henry V is unequivocally the best acting performance I've ever seen from him. His Henry is full of contradictions - his possessive belief that he is blessed by God masks him to the tyrant he is.
I'm going to come right out and say it, Alexander Payne's Nebraska features my favourite performance of 2013 and it's not Bruce Dern as Woody, wonderful though he is. She may only be on screen for around fifteen minutes in total but June Squibb, playing Woody's long suffering wife Kate, steals every scene she's in.
Sold out! Performances of terminator tank, hang tough, hit and run, dog fight, whiplash and eliminator are instant sell outs. I'm not talking about tickets for a new series of Gladiators but the way animals are treated in some of the highest earning Hollywood blockbusters.
I'm bored of hearing about invented scandal that no-one actually gives a shit about. Yes, there are issues with addiction and real dangers in taking both legal and illegal substances but the debate that is provoked by celebrity scandal is neither realistic nor rational.
With the growth of the internet and internet-connected devices, more and more of us are used to finding content at our fingertips, at the touch of a button. So what does this mean for the future of film and the way that we access entertainment?
The top 20 chart-selling DVD series, Lord of the Mics, returns for its 5th series on 16 December this year. Having launched in 2001 by cemented grime producer/artist Jammer, the series caused a shockwave of excitement throughout the UK's urban underground by showcasing the battling talents of the, then unknown, artists such as; Wiley, Skepta, Kano and Tinchy Stryder.
Desmond Rayner's new show, titled Major Minis, currently held at the Piper Gallery in Fitzrovia, London, is an invitation to loose and to find yourself at the same time exploring his intricate drawings.
This week's global street art review coincides with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (25th November) and central for the edition will be works revolvong around the intimate complex nature of women.
The much anticipated stage version of Let the Right One In is terrifying - but not emotional. There is a lot of excellence in this adaptation of the cult film but, crucially, it lacks heart and soul - somewhat ironically in a story about the undead.
The blurb for the brand new book Out of the West, by Kevin Sullivan, is really very bad. The first sentence lost me immediately as it mentioned two Greek names - both of which I instantly forgot - and then it describes their convoluted love affair in WW2 Greece, with some action taking place in Scotland.
Whole Lotta Love was my own introduction to Zeppelin. Up until this point, as a 12-year-old, I was a Beatles fanatic. So much so I used to sometimes carry a Beatles album to school in the hope that maybe some other like-minded student might talk to me about the fabs.
