Susan has just been chosen as one of the celebrity dancers on this season’s Strictly Come Dancing and has been paired with male professional dancer Kevin Clifton. I think we can safely say that she has finally made it! I am very excited that Susan is on screen finally in a mainstream environment where she can showcase her natural comedy and bubbly personality. We have an out and successful lesbian on mainstream television – what a momentous occasion!
There’s no denying it – relationships truly define us. And unfortunately, if you’re bisexual, your identity can easily be misread.
Date a female-spectrum person and they assume you’re a lesbian, date a male-spectrum person and they assume you’re heterosexual.
I personally love the fact that I get to interact with so many different people, and that I have friends across different social economic areas. I also am aware that it means that we often have very different views of some areas – but this gives me an opportunity to learn, open my mind to other points of view. I understand that not everyone is able to do this.
It's Summer 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power, and the National Union of Mineworkers are on strike! At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. But the only problem is the Union seems too embarrassed to receive their support.
Not discouraged, the activists ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a small mining village in Wales to make their donations to the community in person. This journey begins a surprising partnership between two seemingly alien communities as they fight for the same cause.
