Zander Comes Out!


ABOVE:  ZANDER HODGSON BY SARAH MIREYA
What a relief to see that Golden Boy Zander Hodgson, one of our favourites here
has finally decided to come out as gay, as if we didn't actually already know.
Describing how being in the closet was in his own words, like imprisonment.
Perhaps it will now put an end to the constant prying and the never ending
questions on his instagram.

It's amazing that still in 2018 being gay is seen as some huge abnormality by
narrow minded people that also see it as some kind of character flaw.
In Zander's latest video he took a swipe at Hollywood's current dislike for hiring
aspiring actors that just happen to be gay, saying also that the Studios seem to
prefer hiring straight hetero actors to play gay roles, which seems odd to me.

It's just a shame that there are still so many people out there in the public eye and
entertainment world that fear coming out believing that it might damage their careers.
So good luck to Zander in 2018. Something tells me that despite his frustrations
within the acting community, life is going to get a lot better for him now.
And any guy fortunate enough to bag this hunk of a blond beauty must count
themselves as very lucky.

SUMMER'S HERE!


TOP PICTURE VIA HOT GUYS TUMBLR

Well it feels like the warm weather has reached Europe.
So we can finally say that the Summer has arrived.
So what better way to celebrate by posting up our
 traditional Summer's Here post.

They say that with bad things come good things.
And after losing all my pictures on Saturday while
out and about in Camden (below), I learnt that
my neighbours will be away for a couple of weeks .

So I'll have full use of the back garden.
So looks like a bit of tidying up, although it doesn't look
too bad this year. So maybe not as much to do.
But I can't remember getting into the garden this
early in the year.

 I must have taken around 100 pictures while in Camden on Saturday
and lost every one of them.
It seems that I may have put in a wrong new SD Card.
Clearly micro SD Adapter cards are to be avoided.
It wouldn't read on my laptop and even my local photo shop
were unable to find anything on it.
Oh well, Camden Market I can photograph any time. It's
just a shame that I lost all the 'Black Cap Demo' pictures.

_________________________________________ 
So on Saturday afternoon I took off to Camden Town knowing that there was going to be a gathering
outside the once legendary gay pub The Black Cap. And it's been 3 years since it's shocking closure
with absolutely no outcome of what will happen to this well known LGBT venue.
Saturday marked a third year when a local pressure group gathered once again to campaign to
have it brought back to the local community. 

The Pub in Camden High Street was bought by an offshore based company in 2010. And in March 2013
and 2015 planning applications by Pub company Faucet Inn Ltd, to turn the upstairs floors into flats
were refused following heated opposition.
The campaign has attracted actor Stephen Fry as well as Paul O'Grady and activist Peter Tatchell.


THE BLACK CAP HAS BEEN A HUGELY SUCCESSFUL LBGTQ+ PUB AND CABARET VENUE FOR MORE THAN
50 YEARS - FROM WHEN 
BEING GAY WAS ILLEGAL UP TO THE DAY OF IT'S SHOCKING CLOSURE.

THERE'S BEEN A PUB ON THIS VERY SITE FOR MORE THAN 350 YEARS, KNOWN AS THE BLACK CAP SINCE 1751.
THIS BUILDING OPENED AROUND 1870 AND IS BELOVED IN CAMDEN AND WORLWIDE.


HELP US ENSURE THAT IT STAYS AS A PUB AND PERFORMANCE VENUE FOR CENTURIES MORE.
