Metropolitan Police suddenly halted
London’s 2016 LGBT PRIDE parade to
let an officer propose to his boyfriend,
along with two other officers who got
engaged to each other. Haters posted
some nasty tweets, so the MET promptly
warned them of a visit from one of their
32,000 officers due to hate speech
being illegal in the UK. SourceSource 2
I know this is probably a bit late to the party but - London Spy (or at least the first two episodes that I’ve seen) is beautiful, and hauntingly real. There’s obviously the slight surrealism of the situation but that’s easy enough to get past because the characters are so well developed. Apart from Alex, of course. Okay, so Danny is really well developed and I love how he’s interpreted and I could drool over Ben Whishaw for days but I’m not going to right now.
But I just want to know, to those of you that have finished the mini-series, is this just another gay tragedy? Or is there something more, some element that’s revealed in the last three episodes?
I really am hoping it’s not a tragedy, but from the somewhat vague spoilers I’ve noticed on tumblr, there seems to be assent that it is. I mean, either way I’ll watch it, the show has already hooked me, I just want to know if I need to prepare my heart for the inevitable crushing if it is the demise of yet another homosexual couple.
capering relicker is the only good first city uncle like yeah, sometimes he got drunk and throws your stuff into gutter but he gave you 12.00 echoes worth of free items despite being a scraps collector??
meanwhile the manager and king of polythreme ask for Expensive Rare Stuffs just so you can listen to their background, and they’re way richer than you,,
So, I have this beautiful piece of art by @cylon as the case on my laptop. I have used this laptop at many trainings around the world and for the very first time today in London this guy went “Oh my god, is that Octavia?” and then proceeded to tell me he loved the show until season 3 and then quit watching because he couldn’t stand season 3.
I laughed so hard inside but couldn’t really laugh because, y’know, I’m training these guys.
The Discourse has found me all the way in an IT training in London, y’all.
