BiMedia: August 2005

Domino Due for release later this year is Domino, with Keira Knightley in the title role. The film is based on the life of Domino Harvey, the beautiful daughter of an English actor turned LA bounty hunter.  However, as reported in The Guardian (Thursday 30th June 2005), they’re missing something out – namely her bisexuality. “Domino sees it as an […]

House of bi?

A short BiMediaWatch this month with just one show to report on. Michael Dobbs’ House of Cards series from the early 90s is a fondly remembered drama about the rise and fall of a politician whose determination to avenge a perceived slight should surely be his downfall.

Bi Media Watch: Autumn 2013

The actress and comedian came out in the late 1980’s and embraced her […]

BiMedia: October 2008

LGB people in the early stages of self-acceptance can be affected by internalised homo/bi phobia. I suffer from internalised journo-phobia whenever I see another journalist’s feature proposal on a subject that is dear to my heart. Now that the tabloid-toast of the moment Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson have confirmed, to the immense surprise of nobody, that they are dating, […]

BiMedia October 2007

Perhaps it’s not the most illustrious start to my tenure on BiMedia: a US-centric, three-week-old entertainment story, which, assuming you rhyme “bed” with the letter z, probably won’t reach your TV screen for about five years anyway.  But really, if the prospect of Joley Richardson and Portia de Rossi getting intimate in the upcoming series of Nip/Tuck doesn’t grab your […]
