Straight Talking
About Me


Name::straighttalker05
From::Northern Ireland, United Kingdom
I'm an avid dreamer. I have big ideas, and I'll probably take them somewhere. Watch this space. I want to present what I think - and not with words minced up into an acceptable platter. Some things need to be told straight - particularly gay rights. Particularly life in the closet, it's very nature means no one hears it. If they do it's usually tinted with nostalgia. I'm confident, I know what I like and what I don't. Please don't confuse this for arrogance. I'm probably more insecure then you imagine.

You Big Pansy

Artist Paul Harfleet has come up with an interesting new way to draw attention to homophobia – if a little stereotypical. He plants pansies.

Originally his project was to plant pansies at all the places he had experienced homophobia, but more recently he planted one in London, at the spot which David Morley, bar man, was brutally killed by a gang. The Pansy Project is appearing as part of the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival.

It’s maybe not the most useful thing to do to combat homophobia, but it certainly draws attention to the sad fact that all gay people have probably experienced homophobia at some time in their life. If we planted pansies in every place, we’d have one bloody big garden.On
Sunday April 1st Harfleet will be manning a stall of pansies placed alongside the bookstalls near to BFI Southbank (London). From 12-4pm he will be on hand to distribute the flowers and chat about The Pansy Project to interested passers by. I obviously can’t drop by, but anyone nearby should definitely check it out.
