“football drama, just bants”, i say; watching helplessly as gay sea pigeons spiral their way down perilously close to the abyss of relegation
taking a single point off a team of championship freshers who have only just arrived and only send kids & amateurs out onto the field means next to nothing. so that useless closetcase llama can shut up about it and retire his hobbled bones asap
albion i am NOT being paid enough for this

I used London as my base, got a train pass and chose Brighton as one of my day trips. It's only about an hour by train and the town is easy to walk. I got off the train and walked down to the beach. The beach was full of rocks so I was disappointed. When I hear the word "beach" I think of sand but obviously that's not always the case. LOL. I quite liked the Palace Pier with its carnival atmosphere. The food and the rides reminded me of the fairs I used to attend as a child. Then I walked to the Royal Pavilion (home of the Prince Regent during the 19th century) but after touring that place I got a splitting headache from the garish colors. I spent the rest of the day just walking around the town to get the feel of the place. It has some lovely little shops and restaurants. There is also wonderful examples of Georgian architecture along the seaside.

I enjoyed the bath house that I went to when I was working in Worthing and staying at the Jury’s Inn by the train station. The bath house was somewhere down the hill going toward the beach and to the left (when you’re facing the ocean).
Anyway, I had a hot foursome and I was flirting with this lovely twink as I saw him in the various rooms. But this old big bear just wouldn’t leave me alone. I just left after I left the bear slurp me a bit. I tried to find another hookup through Recon later that night, but nothing came of it.

2000s-era Channel 4 lesbian dramedy SUGAR RUSH was filmed and set in Brighton. It’s an underrated cult classic, very funny and frank and British.

Frightful sea gulls.
And I actually called the paramedics to tend to a very drunk and emotionally disturbed woman at the bar I was in. They didn't want to come but I insisted. I was going by US standard of care and realize things are different in the UK.

In the 80s, my mum went to Sixth Form College there.
She said it was a really dynamic and fun and interesting place to be in the summer months, because there were plenty of tourists from all over the place, and all the boardwalk freaks and gays and subcultural youths would come out to play. The live alternative music scene was apparently a big deal back then, too. My mum reports once witnessing a beachside standoff between some mods and some skinheads, which is quite a funny image (mum was a prep of sorts).
However, she said that once the weather turned colder and the nights drew in, everyone interesting left, and the place just became a dreary quiet rundown seaside town full of the elderly, burnouts, and a small contingent of students too poor to go home for the holidays. She hated the place in the winter, and got very homesick for London & Nairobi (her two home cities).
That was some 40 years ago, though. I’m sure it’s very different now. From what I gather talking to peers of mine, it’s rather more sanitised and gentrified and ‘Queer’ rather than the dirty Guignol gay underground it used to be.

R15 guess you missed the point that she was emotionally disturbed and in my medical opinion (yes I am a MD) in danger of harming herself. Where I come from, an ambulance comes and takes you to a hospital where you will be 5150'd and further evaluated and kept out of harms way.

The Royal Pavilion is well worth seeing for a display of ostentation. Brighton Museum is very enjoyable. The Regency architecture is lovely, but the town itself has a miserable atmosphere. Full of ex-Londoners, drug addicts and scene queens.

I still like Brighton, but it wasn't always so seedy. It was rather nice in the 80s. There was a bit of an old carnival atmosphere with all the old hand painted signs. I believe the old SNACKS AND AMUSEMENTS sign with the stars is long gone. The restaurants were much nicer back then as well. I haven't been in ages.

Overrated - depressing, grimey, and not as much of a gay scene as it used to be.
