We celebrate black culture one minute, and crush black lives the next. "Poet Claudia Rankine’s ‘genius grant’ win is a victory for African Americans. But there’s something devastating about the context in which it was awarded."

Why are there so few resources for gay Muslims online? (Image)



It Happens, Yana Mazurkevich's incredible photo series that "pairs potent imagery with the unsettling, true stories of sexual assault survivors."



Addressing the most forgotten letter in LGBT.

One in three LGBT travellers experience discrimination on holiday.

"We are building our way to hell." Tales of gentrification around the world. From community displacement in Mexico City to tourism-triggered evictions in Lisbon and crazy rent hikes in Silicon Valley, stories of gentrification – and the initiatives trying to tackle it.

Does cycling contribute to a city's gentrification? "Hostility to cyclists and bike lanes often seems to be a proxy for wider anger at gentrification. But does this urban phenomenon really arrive on two wheels – or is new cycle infrastructure a sign the street has already transformed?"

Being born in the 1990s isn't all doom and gloom.

Why I hate small talk. "Social life has slipped back to the 1950s, when manners were everything and truth embarrassing."

Liquid assets: How the business of bottled water went mad. "How did a substance that falls from the air, springs from the earth and comes out of your tap become a hyperactive multibillion-dollar business?"

I got scruples too, you know. You know what that is? Scruples?

Real life father and daughter, Ryan and Tatum O’Neal, make an unforgettable comic couple in Peter Bogdanovich’s fast paced and extremely funny Paper Moon (1973).

Shot in black and white and set in the mid-west during the Depression, O’Neal plays a Bible salesman/con artist who is called upon to deliver an orphan, Tatum, in an Oscar winning role, to her relatives and their mutual antagonism leads from one hysterical scene to another. It also stars Madeline Kahn in an Oscar nominated role as "good time girl" Trixie Delight, John Hillerman in duel roles as a sheriff and a bootlegger and the hysterical P.J. Johnson as Trixie’s put upon maid Imogene. Fast paced, brilliantly written and acted, it’s the perfect after dinner Thanksgiving delight!   Steve Hayes

Tippi Hedren and Rod Taylor enter the world of Alfred Hitchcock with terrifying results in The Birds (1963), taken from a short story by Daphne DuMaurier.

With able support from Susanne Pleshette, Jessica Tandy and young Veronica Cartwright, it is Hitchcock at his best. The perfect Halloween classic that will leave you riveted and terrified.

Charles Laughton, Tyrone Power and Marlene Dietrich give Agatha Christie’s stage success the once over in Billy Wilder’s suspense classic Witness For The Prosecution (1957).

Brilliantly directed by Wilder with a top notch supporting cast headed by Elsa Lanchester, John Williams, Una O’Connor and set against the background of London’s Old Bailey, it’s a courtroom whodunit that will keep you guessing to the very last second.

Reclaiming "butch": "It’s surprising how much of a taboo it still is... ‘People use 'butch' as a way of insulting queer women,’ says Esther Godoy. Her new publication aims to change that."

Turns out lesbians are just not that profitable. On losing AfterEllen and queer women's spaces.

Thirteen things never to say to bisexual people.

White riot. "How racism and immigration gave us Trump, Brexit, and a whole new kind of politics."

Expanding the definition of blackness. "The connection between HIV and Black Lives Matter are much deeper when the definition of blackness includes all "problematic" bodies."

Why being a fake is bad for you. "Authenticity – where we say and do what we truly think – is one of the keys to our wellbeing."

Is civilisation good for us? On the dangers of social fragmentation.
