The real-life triumphs of the gay communist behind hit movie Pride 21.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Friends recall 'a firecracker of a human being' as memorial fund for Mark Ashton receives more than £10,000

He is one of the central characters in Pride, the feelgood film now in cinemas that tells how gay and lesbian activists threw their support behind a Welsh mining community during the strike of 1984.

But while many of those who inspired the film attended its recent premiere, Mark Ashton was absent. He died in 1987 of an Aids-related illness at the age of just 26. But now the film has sparked a surge of interest in his political activism. A memorial fund in his memory has received donations of more than £10,000 since the film's release this month.

Societal stress worsens domestic violence in same-sex couples 20.9.2014
The additional stress of being a sexual minority has exacerbated domestic violence episodes among same-sex couples compared with opposite-sex couples, new research says. Same-sex couples may not report domestic violence for fear of discrimination. "They also may worry about their sexual orientation being revealed before they are comfortable with it," said senior study author Richard Carroll, an associate professor in psychiatry and behavioural sciences at the Northwestern Universitys Feinberg School of Medicine. "Domestic violence is exacerbated because same-sex couples are dealing with extra stress. This leads to reluctance to address domestic violence issues," Carroll added. The research that has examined same-sex domestic violence, has a greater concentration of lesbian cases rather than gay men and bisexuals. "Men may not want to see themselves as the victim, to present themselves as un-masculine and unable to defend themselves," Carroll noted. According to researchers, healthcare providers should ...

Lena Dunham: 'I just want to work the death thing out' 20.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Success, sex and a philosophical dad haven't cured Girls creator Lena Dunham's terror of death, as she reveals in this exclusive extract from her first book I think a fair amount about the fact that we're all going to die. It occurs to me at incredibly inopportune moments I'll be standing in a bar, having managed to get an attractive guy to laugh, and I'll be laughing, too, and maybe dancing a little bit, and then everything goes slo-mo for a second and I'll think: are these people aware that we're all going to the same place in the end? I can slip back into conversation and tell myself that the flash of mortality awareness has enriched my experience, reminded me to just go for it in the giggling and hair-flipping and speaking-my-mind departments because why the hell not? But occasionally the feeling stays with me, and it reminds me of being a child feeling full of fear but lacking the language to calm yourself down. I guess, when it comes to death, none of us really has the words. I wish I could be ...
