New LGBT movie Soft Lad is coming to DVD after it’s excellent screening on the POUTfest Tour.


Starring former GT cover-star and EastEnders’ actor Jonny Labey and Coronation Street’s Daniel Brocklebank, Soft Lad is this year’s hot LGBT movie you don’t want to miss out on.

In a previous interview with Jonny, he tells us that kissing other guys on camera doesn’t faze him in the slightest: “A kiss is a kiss, it doesn’t really matter if it’s between a man or a woman.”

When asking him if there’s any limits to stop him achieving his goals, he leans forwards and tells is “I’m willing to do whatever.”

Watch the trailer here:

SOFT LAD is released on DVD by Peccadillo Pictures on 9 November 2015. It is also screening as part of POUTfest Tour, find out where you can see here.

Coronation Street gets a new hunk!

Shanye Ward joins Coronation Street

The former X Factor winner is swapping the stage for the cobbles

Today, it has been announced that former X Factor winner, Shayne Ward, will be joining the cast of Coronation Street. He is set to play the role of Aidan Connor, a distant cousin of Michelle (Kym Marsh).

On hearing the news he had been offered the part, Shayne revealed, “I was in total disbelief. It still hasn’t sunk it. Shayne Ward the lad from Manchester, given such a role on such an iconic show – it is an absolute dream come true.”

A Kiss To Far – Gay Kiss on Television

Colin and Barry. Their gay relationship was one of the more controversial storylines in 1987.

Rob McNeil wrote in the Belfast Telegraph of his hopes for Ulster’s future and made reference to the first interracial kiss on television between Captain James T Kirk and Lieutenant Uhura on November 22, 1968.  His  ( McNeil’s) dream encompassed a shared future, studying a space science qualification, which would help an evolving Ulster economy towards space ‘that final frontier’.

For out community, the first gay kiss on television occurred on East Enders in January 1989, twenty-one (21) years later.!

Today interracial kissing doesn’t get a mention or complaint, but two gay men kissing still results in complaints.  Darran Little, the write of the episode, has said that ‘no progress’ in peoples’ attitudes towards gay people has been made.  Approximately 10 years before this episode, a storyline in Coronation Street with Todd kissing Nick also resulted in complaints.

Society is not adjusting fast enough to the fact that the LGBT are real, honest, people who deserve to live the full active lives just as heterosexuals do!
