Even though I am undeniably right now in the UK – the local Wi-Fi service I am using still tells the world that I am actually in Germany, so when I visit websites, I tend to see German adverts – which can sometimes be slightly amusing. Although the fun breaks down a bit when Google keeps trying to redirect me to their German website.

This morning though, I am seeing an advert on Facebook exhorting me to Visit London. Maybe I will.

Visit London if you are Gay

Even better, if you string the advert below it into a single phrase, it could be saying “Visit London, but only if you are Gay”. I wonder what the Daily Mail would make of that.

(should Gay be capitalised or not? Hmm)

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
