Alongside writing for social, I also write long-copy pieces for various outlets. Here are a few of my favourites. (Click on the underlined titles to see the full articles.)
Gay Star News - The UK's largest gay news site
- Opinion: Nothing but sensationalist slut-shaming that could ruin lives - A reporter used Grindr to out gay Olympians in Rio
- Opinion: Saying Sorry Isn't Enough - Teenage Vine 'star' says something offensive, then offers a half-hearted apology. I got angry.
- Opinion: Black Woman Versus Gay Man Fight - My response to a Time Magazine article on gay men of appropriating black female culture
- Opinion: Are All Gay Men Tory, Or Is Ivan Massow Wrong? - Mr. Massow posited the opinion that all gay men are intrinsically Tory. I disagreed. Vehemently.
Big Gay Picture Show - The UK's premier gay film review and news site
- Review: I Am Michael - James Franco's 'Going-In' movie fails to impress
- Review: The Samurai - A different - but incredibly effective - kind of horror movie.
- Review: Land Of Storms - Downright harrowing.
- Interview: Matt Carter - Q&A-style interview with the Director of Jayson Bend: Queen And Country
So So Gay - I co-founded the UK's largest and fastest-growing online gay lifestyle magazine in 2010, and worked as Director there until late 2012. In 2011 we were nominated for the Stonewall Publication Of The Year Award. [NB: Due to the publication's slow and frankly embarrassing demise after I left, these links are all from archive sources, and so may take a little longer to load.]
- Feature: My LGBT Hero: Peter Tatchell - As part of a collection of articles profiling LGBT activists the So So Gay staff look up to; I chose Peter Tatchell.
- Opinion: Re-taking Pride - An opinion piece on how the catastrophic organisation of London Pride wasn't a completely bad thing.
- Feature: My First Kiss - Similar to the LGBT Heroes strand, So So Gay staff tell the stories of their first kiss.
