British Library talk was good, but the best stuff was Keith Jarrett reading his poetry so there’s not that much to report. I like the idea of libraries as queer atemporal spaces though - interjecting other times and other narratives into the orderly progression of “normal life”.

If I have a serious argument against "but, deradicalisation!" it's that changing your mind takes listening and reflection, and an adversarial environment dominated by "debate" has no space for either.

I was just looking at the pictures from my home town's first ever Pride event that took place today.

When I was growing up there, it was always Manchester. Manchester was where you want for anything LGBT, it wasn't even dreamed of that there'd be anything queer in our town.

it’s double-sided tape which is conductive only from one side to the other, conductivity is not present along the length or width of the tape!

Say what you like about the character design in Nier Automata - and in my opinion a lot of what was said was in bad faith - but the writing at least aspired to the level of a youngish grown-up.

"is the battle for lgbtq rights over?!" not until we bury the whole damn kyriarchy, comrade
