Turing was posthumously pardoned and while he was a hero, there are thousands of casualties of that terrible law, thousands of men who are not heroes, but who cannot be overlooked for justice simply for seeking out the relationships to which all people are entitled... With this petition, I'm happy to play a small part in a campaign that can materially improve the lives of men convicted under discriminatory laws. The British government did the right thing by pardoning Turing, and now it's time for another positive step forward.
Since it was Valentine's Day, attendees were encouraged to dress up as Albert Square's all-time favourite couple, Kat & Alfie, and many did. But they're were also other characters on hand, such as Dot Cotton, Bianca Jackson and Den Watts, as you can see from the photos.
I've read a chapter of the book (couldn't cope with any more of that weak dialogue), but thought the movie was solidly made and well cast (though Michael Fassbender would have been a better Grey).
It may be Valentines night in the Maynard household but the search for our Team Midas' Voice champion continues. At this stage of the blind auditions the roses need to bloom and really stand out from the thorns.
"How did those hearts get in there?", we hear you cry! The seemingly impossible feat is actually quite easy when you know how. Impress that special someone with these sweet treats from Cupcake Jemma or enjoy all to yourself (you can't be sad when you're holding a cupcake)!
When EL James's book exploded onto the scene with tales of - shock horror - how ordinary women were suddenly sneaking off to their bedrooms for a bit of self pleasure with a book, I thought: big deal, some of us have been doing that for years.
In the UK there's never been a trans woman playing a trans woman in a recurring role in a TV series. Whenever there is a trans character before they're played by Cisgender women. What was going to happen, how would people react, would I be hated?
Oh how we love to judge! Is it not good to give our love some home truths in the form of some advice or most commonly some harsh criticisms? The majority of anything said from one partner to another would go in one ear and out the other, no matter how much sense it makes to you, it's not their perspective therefore 90% of it goes by the wayside.
I can see why the BDSM community are up in arms. Here is a man who stalks his victim with a degree of fortitude that it's hard not to feel some begrudging sense of awe. He knows her bank details, in fact he has a built an entire file on her and flies out to interrupt a holiday with her parents, checking in to the same hotel as she's enjoying cocktails with her mother.
Packed with hilarious scenes that had me laughing out loud, Losing It is an easy to read book that is hard to put down. Wrapped in this brilliant comedy is the more serious change made by the protagonist, Millie, who loses some of her criticalness of others and herself, which perhaps is an important element of Helen Lederer's new 'Mid-Lit' genre as it is in mid-life.
E.L. James started out writing vampire fan-fiction on the website FanFiction.net about five years ago, and so did I. She concentrated on Edward and Bella in Twilight while I was drawn into Drusilla's rich, dark world of Buffy.
I called to Dan and Lauren to bring the camera over as the monkey lazily flopped down out of the tree and into the grass to start grazing. I think seeing any animal in it's natural habitat is always unforgettable but this was brilliant. I felt like Dian Fossey.
I'd be amazed if this didn't feature heavily in the next Razzie awards. The scene in the finale where a key character's wings unfurl is one of the most laughable I've witnessed in a major film over the past 12 months.
The first series of Broadchurch was a revelation and it was no surprise that it scooped up the awards but the twists and turns that it brought were quickly undone in the first episode of the second venture.
Over 20 years later and I have learnt that Flash Gordon has had an impact on just about everyone who has seen it. It's not a film that people find "okay". It's a film that "blew your mind". If it didn't, you simply hadn't seen it.
Men United is one team I am happy to support, without question. Sometimes we have to turn a blind eye to our friends little quirks and oddities, I know I did. My best mate is an Evertonian, I am a dyed-in-the-wool Red. And that's exactly what Prostate Cancer UK wants us all to do: get your friends together and do something great to beat this horrible disease that affects one in eight men. Men United hits the spot for a lot of people and has got some top blokes in its team. 200,000 and counting - and I'm one of them.
