We Need to Talk About Grindr by Dame Effie Sprinkle IV

Hook up … or not!

Dame Effie Sprinkle casts an eye over Grindr, the hook-up of app that makes it possible to put cruising at the centre of your life, whenever and wherever.

“While I suspect Grindr has caused gay men to have a lot more sex than ever before in history, for every successful hook-up, there will have been at least 10 failed ones.”

Querelle, as seen by Dame Effie Sprinkle IV

Art 4 Botttoms!

Dame Effie Sprinkle IV watches Querelle on iTunes and is thankful that gay films no longer have to be incomprehensible ‘art’ films.

“If you were gay in the 1980s, you couldn’t help but become an intellectual by default due to the fact that in order to see a man’s bottom onscreen you had to watch a lot of foreign films with no plot and lots of subtitles that were shown on Channel 4 in the early hours of the morning.”
