The handkerchief code explained, once and for all.


Celebrity Big Brother’s biphobia shines a light on a deeply damaging problem. "Christopher Biggins’ hurtful remarks have drawn attention to an often-ignored issue. It’s no wonder so few bisexuals are comfortable being out in the workplace."

Trump, Brexit... Is New Zealand your escape route too? "Billy Crystal has threatened to move to New Zealand if Trump wins power and post-Brexit, ‘move to New Zealand’ became a top Google search term. Please consider moving here, but do so with your eyes wide open."

Are we living through another 1930s? "As daunting events come thick and fast amid increasing public racism and xenophobia, the similarities with the buildup to the second world war are real, but we can take hope from a few key differences."

Why we should relegate terrorists to the obscurity of their own infamy. "Limiting publicity would deny jihadis the glory they crave and reduce the risk of us banalising evil."

Robert Stack, Dorothy Malone and a ship load of passengers battle the odds on a luxury liner going down in Andrew L. Stone’s spine tingling disaster film The Last Voyage (1960).

Filmed on an actual liner that was sunk for the filming, the cast includes Oscar winners George Sanders as a distressed captain, Edmund O’Brien as a panicked mid-shipman and Woody Strode as a fearless crew member who attempts the impossible in order to save the lives of those who are trapped below. The perfect summer excursion, you’ll be on the edge of your seat for 90 unforgettable minutes!

Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford and Roz Russell lead a bevy of MGM beauties in George Cukor's comedy classic The Women (1939).

Based on a play by Claire Booth Luce, with a screenplay by Anita Loos, it also stars Paulette Goddard, Joan Fontaine, Marjorie Main, the delightful Mary Boland and an all female cast who deliver some of the wittiest dialogue of the golden age of screen comedies. Gorgeously shot in the MGM tradition, with outrageous costumes by Adrian and a color fashion show that will knock your eyes out, it's a hysterical, bitchy glam fest you don't want to miss!

19-year-old Jason Benjamin Josaphat, a baby. That Saturday night should have been the best Saturday night of his life, where he met the love of his life, or the best fuck of his life, or the worst fuck of his life, the one he laughed with his friends about later.

19-year-old Jason Benjamin Josaphat, someone's best friend, someone's secret crush, someone's future soulmate. A son.

19-year-old Jason Benjamin Josaphat. I should be posting his picture because he's fucking beautiful, because he's an Instaboy, because he was beautiful inside too, and he was loved. But instead I know 19-year-old Jason Benjamin Josaphat because he's dead, the face - just one of forty-nine faces - of a real life horror story. What was it like for him in those last moments of life? Do you dare to try and imagine it?

19-year-old Jason Benjamin Josaphat. A baby - our baby - who died before he lived.
