As we all wished him luck with his future, it got us thinking – and joking – about working for an LGBT organisation where for the youth worker roles especially, your sexuality was one of the criteria that landed you the job… I’m what I like to refer to as ‘a Professional Gay’
Musicians get together to form bands.The bands break up then the musicians make new bands with people from other bands, or they do solo projects or they form bands with their husband or wife. The list goes on and ‘musical family trees’ are made. I got the inspiration to do this mini music blog from [...]
Allsorts, a Brighton based LGBT charity, are looking for two enthusiastic and experienced lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans youth workers to provide youth support including one-to-one work and facilitation of our weekly drop-in and under-16 work.
A lot of people see being bisexual as a cop out for not wanting to admit to fully fledged gayness or see it as a sneaky way to be part of many different peer groups.

We had a lovely time, especially in the gay cafés of Paris. A particular favourite was the Little Café, in which we were greeted warmly and felt really at home. The place was buzzing, even though it was a Monday night, and we were purposely seated next to an American couple so we could chat to them. The place ticked all the boxes, and it was a lovely change from having to shout to each other across a noisy bar or lip read in a jam packed club.
Unique because it attracts some of the big names in the music touring world. Brighton and Hove has a population of 230,000 (approx) and yet can sustain a thriving music, theatre and art scene. For a city of this size I can think of no other that can match it in terms of singers and bands [...]
