A moment that changed me: going to a gay bar and realising I was bisexual

A moment that changed me: going to a gay bar and realising I was bisexual
- We’d had a staff party on the archipelago and, taking the boat back into town, my co-workers and I were in the mood to dance. We discussed where to go and someone (it might have been me) realised Stockholm Pride was underway – maybe we should try a gay bar.
I didn’t know anyone who identified as LGBT, and although I was slowly starting to realise I was bisexual, I wasn’t about to tell anyone, including myself. I argued, however, that with rainbow flags flying across the city we might as well join in the festivities. The idea of going to a club full of queer people seemed both slightly scary and extremely appealing.

LGBTQ Refugees Need And Deserve Dignity

LGBTQ Refugees Need And Deserve Dignity
- I woke up feeling alone, a stranger in my own country for the first time on 24 June last year having learned the UK would be leaving the EU. I am the son of a Czech refugee, Jewish and gay; a minority within a minority within a minority. Even though I am British and was born in London I suddenly felt like an outsider. I felt forcibly cut off from the roots I had always been proud of. Being European is also part of my identity and I felt robbed of it. Yet even these feelings, felt from the safety of my own home, are a luxury. The LGTBQ refugees I now support are not so lucky.

Trust the news? Most people don't, social media even more suspect - study
- Most people don't trust the mainstream media and are even more suspicious of social media, a survey revealed on Thursday, though it said social networks were vital for under-reported stories such as LGBT and migrant issues.
The latest Digital News Report from the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism found high scepticism about news and comment, with 33 percent of more than 70,000 consumers polled in 36 countries saying they can't rely on the news to be true.
Only 24 percent of people said social media did a good job separating fact from fiction, compared to 40 percent for mainstream media.
