Russell Tovey and Plaque Dedicated to Oscar Wilde; After Being Listed On ‘Gay-Hunting’ Web Site Russian Activist Is Killed; Ryan Field Books

Russell Tovey and Plaque Dedicated to Oscar Wilde

I like to see actors like Russell Tovey doing things like this. It’s part of gay history. I can’t even tell you how much I support things like this.

Of course most people still don’t know this because it’s not taught in any heteronormative history books, but Oscar Wilde once suffered a vicious homophobic attack that left him traumatized. A plaque dedicated to Wilde, so that no one ever forgets what happened to him, was recently placed where the attack happened.

Actor Russell Tovey unveiled the Rainbow Plaque commemorating Oscar Wilde on Platform 10 at Clapham Junction Station.

You can read the rest, here.  There’s a nice photo of Tovey and the plaque.


 After Being Listed On ‘Gay-Hunting’ Web Site Russian Activist Is Killed

On the global front, this is disturbing. I didn’t know there was a web site that was designed to ‘hunt’ gay people. But worse, the web site actually offers prizes to people who attack gay people.  

A Russian LGBTQ activist, Yelena Grigoryeva, was fatally stabbed in St. Petersburg Sunday night after her name was listed on a website that encourages people to “hunt” LGBTQ activists, inspired by the torture-themed film “Saw.”

Here’s the rest. They go into a lot more detail about the murder and the web site.
