    There is a vibrant LGBT community in Kernow Malc4 understanding that you are gay from a posting elsewhere. Many are proud to wear our National Flag of St. Piran during the annual Pride Procession in Truro and well known gay rights campaigner Peter Tatchell who regularly comes to our Duchy from over in England loves Cornwall and the Cornish people for the reason of our openess and acceptance of gay people in our Country and is on record for saying as much and for calling for Cornish autonomy. Dynargh a'gas Kernow! You are welcome to Kernow.

Callington are you par st Austell or near abouts" I genuinely try to be nice and friendly too but am not afraid to stand up and be counted. I am about 23 miles from St.Austell, 22 or 23, off the top of my head.

  • Malc4  |  January 07 2013, 11:20PM

    Awsome. When we move come in for a cup of some thing and chatter ..

  • CallingtonFox  |  January 07 2013, 11:32PM

    You never know!

  • cliffwalker2  |  January 10 2013, 9:57PM

    These are interesting posts. I hadn't realised that so many Cornish nationalists were gay but come to think of it Alec Salmond of the SNP is a bit suspect and I bet you Daffyyd, the only gay in the village, is a closet nationalist, so it's all starting to make sense. I went on holiday to Par in 1956, stayed in a caravan and had a wonderful time.

  • PaddyTrembath  |  January 10 2013, 11:46PM

    cliffwalker2, they aren't, they just don't have a problem with those that are. From the way you word your post, it seems that you do.

  • JJLee  |  January 11 2013, 9:23AM

    SW I guess you would need to expand on how you are using the word Gay. 1. homosexual. 2. of, indicating, or supporting homosexual interests or issues: a gay organization. 3. having or showing a merry, lively mood: gay spirits; gay music. Synonyms: cheerful, gleeful, happy, glad, cheery, lighthearted, joyous, joyful, jovial; sunny, lively, vivacious, sparkling; chipper, playful, jaunty, sprightly, blithe. Antonyms: serious, grave, solemn, joyless; staid, sedate; unhappy, morose, grim; sad, depressed, melancholy. 4. bright or showy: gay colors; gay ornaments. Synonyms: colorful, brilliant, vivid, intense, lustrous; glittering, theatrical, flamboyant. Antonyms: dull, drab, somber, lackluster; conservative. 5. Slang: Often Disparaging and Offensive. awkward, stupid, or bad; lame: This game is really gay. Not 3 and 4 IMHO on reason evidence perhaps 5
