Patrick Marber’s screenplay is a corker. It’s a joy to be reunited with him, Romola Garai and Mark Strong - and to meet the rest of the super-talented cast. https://t.co/JZQ4MLWEVp

This is alarming but essential reading for next time you pass someone trying to sleep on the street. https://t.co/AnfI23lPe3

34 years ago, when I was discovering the delights of coming out, Terry Sanderson’s journalism and books were an eye-opener — always rational and indignant and good-humoured, effortlessly on the higher moral ground. https://t.co/wUwRlElu0s

At 17, @Jake_Daniels11 represents a generation that rejects old-fashioned homophobia in football and elsewhere: those who haven’t yet grown up as he has. He sets an example. No wonder so many of us, gay and everyone else, admire & treasure him as a hero. What a goal he's scored!

If I had a daughter, I’d hope she’d be like Elizabeth. A treat to be her Daddy! https://t.co/w8dhYrj1B6

If you have to end up in a museum, it’s with Pride that I find my image in this one. https://t.co/ibRqw8HxPQ

"What a piece of work is a man… how infinite in faculties, in form and moving, how express and admirable in action." The same could be said of Peter Schaufuss and his company of wonderful dancers. It’s inspiring to watch them and work with them. https://t.co/zDOTCT0I5k

I encourage people around the world to watch these #FiveFilmsForFreedom in solidarity with LGBTIQ+ communities, particularly in places where freedom and equal rights are particularly limited. https://t.co/D4fSdlUBrJ

In an excellent, NBR Best Actor award-winning performance, Sir Ian McKellan sensitively portrays Whale as he grapples with old age, his fading health, and the horrors he faced serving in WWI. (2/2) #NBRtop10 #NBRawards
