04-197208XX 12This corner is really a long list – of places, eople you might like to know about or one day need. We can only, of course, publish the 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. The page is all yours!

I don’t know if it would be of interest to your readers, but it is a curious fact that, in spite of being in the thick of the “riot area”, the older-established of Belfast’s two gay bars has never, to date, been bombed, raided or threatened by any faction. Nice to know somebody loves us. S.Fruizzell.
