FIND in the PRESS.
The Evening Standard
29th June, 1972.

Lady Harewood: “We’ve bought a house in St. John’s Wood, within half a mile of the one we had before. There he (Martin, her son) will have his own room. But he doesn’t like the idea. He likes the roof terrace at Primrose Hill and loves camping round the house. In the new house, we will have exactly the right amount of room”.

Tleephone call to R.C.A. Records, which was commendably to the point…………”Good afternoon, I’m speaking for a new newspaper called Gay News…………”
“Oh, you want a copy of the David Bowie album to review.”

Guess who’s writing another book………we believe it’s called “Everything you ever wanted to know about David Frost, but were afraid to ask.”

This corner is really a long list – of places, people you might like to know about or one day need. We can only, of course, publish information that comes to us. There’s a limit to what we can find out for ourselves, and too many pubs, clubs, movement offices and so on for us to visit. So – if there’s something we should know about, then you should ALL know about it. If your favourite pub or local gay group isn’t mentioned, write and tell us where it is and so forth. You can see from the listings themselves the sort of thing we think is of use and interest. These aren’t ads – we print all information free. This page is all yours!
