8 lesbilicious fictional characters we wish would come out

Co-written with Milly Shaw.

DC Comics’ Green Lantern came out this week and can now join Northstar from X-Men and Batwoman in the metaphorical gay bar of the superhero world.

Aside from the odd superhero, there aren’t very many gay characters in pop culture. Well, there’s Dumbledore. But (spoiler alert!) he’s dead.

That’s not to say that there aren’t queer characters out there. It’s just that they haven’t officially come out yet.

In an effort to move things on, here’s your guide to closet-case characters we’d love to see come out.

Review: Bar Wotever

What a night!angry shout

Tuesday’s set with Not Right at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern was without a doubt the best gig we’ve ever played. Until now we’ve enjoyed providing some increasingly raucous performances, but we’d not quite managed to tap into that sound that we get in the practice room, when it all comes together and sounds like it’s meant to, like it does in our heads.

On Tuesday we managed it and then some. Sure, we’re still pretty rough and ready, but that’s the point. I felt my voice and my bass lock in with Kirsty’s vicious riffs and Snowy’s inventive drumming, as we shared our joy and anger with an utterly receptive audience. We also debuted a new backdrop flag and a new cover: Manic Street Preachers’ Repeat, a perfect song for the Jubilee.

We couldn’t ask for a more warm and welcoming crowd than at Wotever. A massive “thank you” to everyone who came!

Of course, our set was just the start of the night...

Wotever footage

Jess Eyre has put up a short video about Wednesday's gig at Bar Wotever, with commentary from organiser Joey. I appear briefly, performing with Not Right and rambling on about what a good night we had. There's also some great snippets of The Makeshifts, Battle Of You and Killer's Riches.
