Ways in which your parents have embarrassed you around The Gay

My glamour lesbian sister tells this amusing story.

During a performance of Marlene with Sian Phillips in the West End ... as Marlene passionately kissed her young female assistant our father reached around his box seat wall to nudge my sister in the neighbouring box as if to say, here you go, Miss Lesbian, something for you.

Every eye in the house saw this as the box seats were near the stage and bathed in a bit of light. She was mortified. I so wish I had been there. We still laugh about it.

What about you?

My Mum set-up a dating profile for me because I said I was giving up on men. I didn't find out about it till she came to me holding a laptop and said: "I've found you a man! 6' 2", a Doctor, likes cooking and bottoms."

I think we both needed a fainting couch when I had to explain that liking bottoms didn't mean what she thought it meant! She decided the gay dating world was a bit too treacherous for her after that.

Marlene has always been a bit of fun. Especially, drunk!

My dad still thinks it's a phase I'm going through. My dad is 95 and I'm 68 🙄

When my mum told Ant Bert at a picnic that I was “a gay”.

R1. J'adore your Jewish mother.

Ha! No, not Jewish, but I see where you're coming from. My Mother is like Penny from the TV series Miranda. She's fine with me being gay, but being single at a family function? Nightmare!

It's weird you posted that, OP. I just looked up Sian Phillips on wikipedia yesterday to see if she was still alive and what she was doing now. I'd been thinking about a children's TV series I saw as a child in which she'd played a witch but it wasn't on the article, I found it on imdb instead.

and is she still alive? She played the aged Livia in I, Claudius 50 years ago!

She's 89 and still working.

A few Covent Garden queens told me Sian Phillips lives with two elder gays who dote on her. No idea if it's true.

The fabulous Miss Sian Phillips.
