Subject:London Hate Crime Vigil on Oct 30th
Posted by:queerunity.
Time:2:41 pm.
A candlelight vigil will take place in London's Trafalgar Square on October 30th to honor Ian Baynham a gay man who was murdered. Baynham, 62 was walking with a friend when he was attacked.

Homophobic hate crimes have been on the rise in London, just a few days after this attack a lesbian couple was attacked by a group of men. The complaints by the gay community is that little is being done to prevent homophobic hate crimes, police response is inadequate, and that the public at large needs to be made aware of whats going on.

Candlelight vigil and moment of silence:

October 30th
Trafalgar Square
8-10 PM

Subject:Looking for somewhere to live?
Posted by:kotenok.
Time:12:21 pm.
I'm moving out of my current place, pending credit checks etc. It could be as quickly as two weeks time.

The house is a large, 3-bed terrace, huge lounge, big kitchen/diner, washing machine, dishwasher, lovely garden. The WC and bath/shower are separate, so no arguments over bathroom time!

The bedroom is a good double, with wardrobe, chest and double bed comfortably fitting. Location? Manor House, ten mins walk from the tube, or a couple by bus. Lots of local shops and amenities - big Sainsburys, Fitness First gym all within a five minute walk.

And the rent? A mere £400 pcm, plus bills. Bargain for such a huge house. Yes, that's right, HOUSE, not flat!

If you're interested, or know someone who is (and if so, please feel free to pass my email address on), drop me a line at cwaldren@gmail.com.

Hiya, I'm an artist from London. I mostly do painting and drawing but I'm trying some sculpture and I just started stained glass making classes. I love it, and I'm so lucky to live in the best city in the world for every kind of art. I basically live in the National Gallery sketching from the masters :)

I wanted to plug I've been using for a while and it's about to have a site launch so they're asking members to talk up the service. It's called Spoonfed - London's Best Event's Site and does London event listings. It has way more than Time Out or any of the others, especially when it comes to art exhibitions, classes, quiz nites and tournements. You should all check it out!

The best part is, once you register, they give you events based on your interest or your location so you don't have to search through everything in London :).

Hope to see you around!

Subject:a contemporary Faust, at 21 Wapping Lane
Posted by:not_waving.
Time:10:45 pm.
The preacher seems to come out of nowhere. Staring into my eyes, the only part of my face visible behind the mask, he takes me by the hand and leads me through a hidden door into his parlour. He locks the door behind him. The room is sparsely decorated, with a crucifix on the wall, and a single table. Through another door I can see a small bed, in a room with walls covered in newspaper sheets.

He sits me down in a chintz armchair, and takes a seat at the table.
"Are you a woman of sin, or are you a woman of God?"
He looks straight at me, his demeanour unwavering. I smile nervously, but he cannot see me behind the mask.
"Are you prepared to take the path of the righteous, and to stay on the straight road?"
I don't know whether I should say anything. It appears that silence is the same as agreement, for he takes my mask from my face and flings it across the room, before putting his ginger whiskered face right up against mine and screaming the word of God at me. I close my eyes.
He puts his hot hands on my face, runs them through my hair, pulling my hair clips out, squeezes my head between his palms and starts shouting: THANK YOU, JESUS! THANK YOU, JESUS! THANK YOU, JESUS!...

The ecstasy of religious devotion over, he hands me back my mask, puts his hat back on, and lets me back into the street - a neon apocalypse of sin in which he is the one Godly man.

This wasn't a hallucination, nor was it fiction I thought up on the train home last night. It was Faust, a contemporary and groundbreaking retelling transposed to the American Midwest in the 1950s.
The audience wear masks to differentiate them from the actors, who do not.
The set is built in a derelict warehouse, and spread out over 4 floors. The actors roam from scene to scene, to interact with other characters. We, the audience, can follow particular characters in their journey, or just roam at will, hoping to catch a vital scene, or a piece of dance.

There's a very good review here , but I don't think that neither I, nor any reviewer, could possibly put into words what was such a surreal and intoxicating night I feel utterly spellbound, by not only the story, but the whole experience.
