I'm being asked to pay back £1000 to a bank that has reportedly contributed to the national, if not global financial crisis, a bank who sold dead debt to profit from it. Who has the moral obligation to payback?

Theatre Is White and Wealthy

This homogenous, white-and-wealthy audience isn't exclusive to the NT though- in fact it's rife! Go to any of London's big art spaces and you'll find a similar demographic... but why? What is it about modern theatre that isn't reaching out and exciting a broader demographic?

Telling your child they are fat as Katie suggests could be more damaging than educating them about a healthy approach to food. We already live in a world where our bodies are scrutinized from such a young age, this suggested method of parenting only encourages body dysmorphic children.

All our heterosexual friends have sent the obligatory text messages of congratulations but to date, but all of the negative responses we've had have been from our own community - homosexuals.

We were able to find out things I've done to other humans - from suicide to AIDS and everything in between. I remember playing this back to the production team for the first time - it seemed like the dynamic in the room shifted a little as everyone was confronted with the effects of a lie I told aged 16.

Over 4000 people have signed an online petition calling for a public apology from the Daily Mail and for the Editor to sack Richard Littlejohn. I, however am indifferent if he loses his job at the Mail or not; he's a journalist and will find other avenues for his transphobic and homophobic rants

We, as a society need to rethink how we treat obesity - medically and socially. Each day when I leave my house I am confronted by fat phobia - be it shouted from white vans or the huff and puffs of people forced to sit next to me on public transport. I am fully aware my body repulses some of you- but I don't care

It's London Fashion Week - #LFW is trending on twitter, the BBC are pretending to have a clue what 'on the bias' means, everyone who's anyone is in the front row of something or other and I'm at home listening to Radio 4.

Camp (as Christmas)

With 'Camp', my new show at London's Roundhouse, I'm trying to carve out a space where things can be fun and I can experiment without being controversial in a vulgar or grotesque sense... and it's about coming to terms with my own effeminacy and a public proclamation of the things that have shaped me.

It used to be that in order to get a job on the telly or in radio you had to speak the Queen's English. Now it seems Received Pronunciation is solely reserved for Radio 4. It wasn't always this way.

Yesterday, 1 August, marked the launch of the 65th annual Edinburgh Fringe Festival in which 2,695 shows from 47 countries will show off in 279 make shift theatres, dodgy pubs & toilet cubicles across the city; but when you do the sums is it really worth it?

Is the future of our flag in jeopardy? Has our flag become a logo that flogs cheap apparel during times of nationalism decided by marketing teams? If Scotland gain independence do we need to change the flag?

My Love/Hate Relationship With the Critic

Critics have a bit of a reputation for watching your work with what locals up here would call 'a face like a smacked arse' but when I forced her to sit in my eyeline and wear a party hat like everyone else she looked engaged and even LOL'ed - why was I staring at her during the show as if I could predict her review or manipulate her experience?
