Saturday, the first meeting of HarinGAY. Well if you live in a borough with a name like that it has to happen, yes?

I am slightly bemused to find myself going along with this name after all those years of insisting that the L be spelt out in L&G.

*resistant as ever to american neologisms. Shopping ‘malls’, fie.

Celebration party this Sunday 27th 8pm, at the market. (more…)
