Continuing Saga (1)

I see the continuing saga of police harassment outside the Coleherne remains unabated. Two weeks ago last Friday I saw a bloke chase after someone with a bottle, hitting him with it several times in the street. The police were nowhere to be seen of course, to break it up. I suppose they only break up fights between heterosexuals.

I think it should be mentioned by someone, though, that the Coleherne (and that dump across the street which I won’t dignify by mentioning it by name) is one of the sleaziest, crummiest gay pubs anywhere, in my opinion. Even without police harassment, an evening at the Coleherne can be a most depressing experience.

There must be many readers of Gay News who are completely new to the gay scene. I would suggest that they avoid “meat-rack” type pubs like these and, instead, go along to places like GLF and CHE. where they stand a better chance of meeting people on a more human level. Every Wednesday, for instance, GLF have a disco at the Bull and Gate near the Kentish Town tube station. These are free of charge and much more enjoyable than the Earls Court pubs.

Continuing Saga (2)

On leaving a pub which received a fair amount of mention in your sixth edition, I became one of those that night to be vetted by the Chelsea police for no apparent reason. Their attitude was that of a master over scum, in which many who have been in this situation will agree.

I doubt very much if I would have been able to continue on my way that night had it not been for the fact that I am the son of a peer of this land and there may have been some repercussions if it had gone further than a warning. Not myself being used to such procedure, as in Sweden from where I have just returned from a five year stay, the barbaric attitude to the non-conformist in this supposedly enlightened country is beyond belief.

I feel it would be a great service to all of those who are not aware of these matters to date if you would publish a list of do’s and don’ts with the brief legal situation.

ED. Thanks, whoever’s son you are, it seems, you are vulnerable. Suggestions to be incorporated in the suggested list are welcome.


As a negro male, and a well-bred one at that, I would like to make a comment on the censorship of racial prejudice advertisements, if I may call it that.

It would be very stupid of me to try to mediate between homosexuals with prejudices (black and white) and a paper whose leaders are trying to be different and futuristic. We all have our prejudices or preferences, ie some of us like ‘chicken’, leather, whipping, fellatio or oralism. and so it goes on.

I am all for advertisements from people stating their needs, not their requirements, and even that may be contradictory, but nonetheless, I doubt whether it is racialistic. I would never specifically state that I need a negro male, because I am not like that, though in the end one has the final choice. A white man may need me, and I may need him, I might also need a negro, but in the end it comes down to the vital necessary things love, character, sincerity, honesty, things racialists do not look for or need it seems. Though I would say let them publish their filthy ads, it is up to the editor.

I am sure the reason why these people want to put ads of this sort in Gay News is to destroy it, like everything else. I am sure that the petty, irate letters wanting racial ads prove that most of the homosexuals in England are petty, prejudiced, destructive, narcissistic and unchangeable.

The reason one gets ads like ‘Young black, gay, then white guy wants to meet you’ (or words to that effect) shows that lots of gay men still believe in myths and beliefs. Myths that all black men have huge cocks to set their backsides on fire, and because they are so deep in myths, they do not want change.

They do not think of love, just a quick dig. I am a negro, and if I like someone, not because he is white, but from where I am, I am a homosexual and he is a male. But whether he is what I am looking for will depend, not on his colour, but whether he is the sort of person that I can say is honest, sincere, genuine, and most of all, reliable and dependable. Now if there is a negro that I like, then he would have to have the same attributes, and if he has, then who cares.

I like all the pink people, and I like all the negroes, and all the other people, but when it comes down to the racialists, not that I don’t like them, I can’t stand them.

I thought that homosexuals had changed, but most of us seem to be still in the past, of oppression, and persecution.

I am of the opinion that like so many gay papers, and magazines, that have come and gone, those people who keep harping on to have their racial ads in Gay News, all they want to do is to fill it with filth, and destroy it, and it is up to any clean-thinking, liberal-minded homosexuals to make sure they don’t and as an English negro, like hell they will!


I made it very clear in my previous article about VD (crabs and scabies) that a thorough wash every day is essential to people that have it off lots of times with lots of different people. Avoiding crabs and scabies is fairly easy because they’re quite large animals and you can see them, or at least what they do to the outside of your body. Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, Non-Specific Urethritis (NSU) and other diseases caught particularly by sexual contact are caused by nasty little creatures that can’t be seen with the nude eye. I’m not going to talk specifically about these different diseases at the moment, but I am going to suggest advice on how to avoid them.

Don’t fuck or be fucked if you have any kind of sore on your prick, cunt or bum. See a doctor. It might be nothing, but check.

After you’ve fucked someone have a piss – it helps to flush out the germs that might be creeping up your piss pipe – wash your cock.

If you are about to be fucked, have a look at his cock first. If there is any kind of sore or spot or wart, forget it. If you really must — just have a mutual wank, but wash your hands afterwards. Warts on the cock, cunt or bum if ignored, are particularly difficult to get rid of, even more so than warts anywhere else on your body. They are not particularly harmful, and may go away of their own accord some time or other, but what right have you to pass them on to anyone else! See your doctor.

If you have any kind of burning sensation when you piss or any kind of discharge from your peehole before or after pissing that doesn’t look like normal piss (cloudy, darker, or thicker) then if you get into bed with anyone the chances are you’re passing on VD and I’d like to kick you in the groin. You deserve it!

Anyone with any kind of worry about Venereal Disease should go to their own doctor, and remember that if he tells any one of your own family or employers about it he can be struck off the register, so he’s bound to be a nice man really. Or go to your local hospital and boldly ask for the ‘Special Treatment Centre’ or VD Clinic, giving someone else’s name and false occupation. They don’t mind but they are inclined to treat you as the scum of the earth. Take the treatment but not the moralising.

PS. If the moralising doctors suggest that you should not drink alcohol because you are being treated for VD of any kind, ignore them. In their own way they’re really saying “if this patient gets drunk he’s likely to go out and fuck somebody else” (or be fucked) it is absolutely nothing to do with the treatment or the drugs used in any kind of VD. It is just that they think you need a little punishment. Death to quacks.

PPS. I’ve never come across a personal vibrator with warts.

PPPS. I’ve never met anyone in my thirty one years of life that doesn’t wank and isn’t a liar. It’s a very healthy exercise — carry on, I’m off to have one now.
