Misogyny in Fag Space: How to Have a Dick Without Being a Dick

Not all gay men have penises, trans man Brandyn Gallagher warns, and it's about time other gay men started dealing with it. "Once upon a time, I was a young fag disguised as a girl. Throughout junior high and high school, I consistently dated boys who eventually figured out they were gay and dumped me so they could instead date men. Rejection, being told my body isn’t desirable or legitimate enough for the men toward whom I’m attracted, has been part of my internal narrative for as long as I can remember. It’s gotten better for me over time, but dating in the world of gay men is far from struggle-free—for anyone, but especially a trans man."

Nigel Farage And Steven Woolfe At Odds Over Ukip's Stance On Terminally Ill Immigrants

Nigel Farage set out Ukip's "common sense" stance towards immigrants in an interview on Wednesday, saying: "We want people who haven't got a life threatening illness." Hours later, he restated his position in his keynote speech on the party's immigration policy, echoing his position last year to stop immigrants with HIV coming to Britain. However, Ukip MEP Steven Woolfe, who has previously said that he was interested in succeeding Farage as leader, insisted that the party would not "turn away" people with life-threatening illnesses like cancer.

Are women PrEPared?

Can PreP just be provided to men who have sex with men in the UK? What about others? What about other vulnerable populations, such as black women and migrants? What about trans women? All the data we have here in the UK is about men who have sex with men, and this worries me.
