David Hockney: you ask the questions 24.10.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Hockney, a revealing new documentary about the man voted Britains most influential artist is released in November. Were interviewing him, but wed like you to think up the questions

At a time when the words legend and icon are bandied around willy-nilly, it is hard to express the brilliance of David Hockney without missing the mark somewhat. Perhaps the fact that he was voted Britains most influential artist of all time in a 2011 poll comes close. But this 77-year-old, Bradford-born, California and Yorkshire-dwelling, seven-day-week working man resists definition: photographer, painter, printmaker, set designer hes done it all.

Yes, dating apps can be bad for gay men but not in the way you might think | Patrick Strudwick 24.10.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
Though stories of violence or robbery are rare, apps such as Grindr have an insidious effect we should still be wary of The CCTV footage is chilling . Suspect number one paces outside, checking his watch, checking all around. Seven minutes later, a second suspect lurks in the hallway, nervously glancing behind him before pulling out his phone. We do not know if these are indeed the culprits. What we know is that last month a gay man used a dating app to arrange for another to visit him in Bayswater, London, and that instead of sex taking place, the first visitor left quickly as a second appeared at the door brandishing what is believed to be a cattle prod. The homeowner was threatened with it, pushed, robbed of cash and computer, and left very shaken, according to police . It is a nightmare realised for many who use such apps in particular gay men, proportionately the biggest users. It feeds into old fears the unknown, the alien about the new age of dating. It begs for hysterical headlines and trembling ...

Pope's fine words on homosexuality are useless while the Catholic church still calls it a sin | David Marr 24.10.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
Pope Francis has offered optimism on gay rights since his election but nothing has emerged from Rome except respect and sensitivity I am still bound for hell. Nothing the bishops discussed in Rome over the past few weeks will save me and my kind from damnation. They considered some soft rhetoric but never questioned that sex between men must remain a grave sin. Commentators around the world, straight and gay, have shied away from this. So delighted were they by talk of the church welcoming gay people and recognising their gifts and qualities that they spoke of a sea change in ...

Trans people need more than beloved celebrity spokespeople. We need equality 23.10.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
President Obamas executive order protecting transgender federal employees racked up its first win. We still deserve more While transgender people are having a moment in the media which gives us opportunities to educate the public about our lives, as Laverne Cox and others have done the reality is that trans people still face extreme rates of employment discrimination, social and economic marginalization, and violence. It will take more than Laverne Coxs image on the cover of TIME and critical acclaim for Transparent to change ...

Margarita, with a Straw: The sexuality of the disabled excited me as a film-maker 23.10.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
In London years ago, Shonali Bose was inspired to make a movie when her cousin, who has cerebral palsy, told her she wanted sex for her birthday. Now both women are back in town at the film festival with the finished work See our first look film review of Margarita, with a Straw There is, on first glance, something almost absurdly inclusive about Margarita, with a Straw , director Shonali Boses Sundance-funded film about a young Indian woman with cerebral palsy who falls in love with a blind girl. Yet this is a film so charming and breezily rendered that it never feels like an exercise in politically correct consciousness-raising. Its central romance develops naturally, and the films heroine, Laila (played by luminous, able-bodied actor Kalki Koechlin), grows in many ways, not just as a person with a disability. She crosses continents literally, from Delhi to New York and back, and emotionally, from a sheltered teenager living at home with her parents to a formidable, independent creature, happy to hit ...
