The Independent: Question?

The Saturday Quiz

1. Which two 19th-century French poets are honoured in London with the first blue plaque celebrating a gay relationship?

The Independent.

One might presume the answer is those star-crossed lovers, Verlaine and Rimbaud.
Only problem is they don't have a blue plaque.
God, The Independent's so insultingly rubbish on gay stuff I despair (See Fagburn passim).

PS Today is Paul Verlaine's 169th birthday - why not toast his memory with a glass or five of absinthe while reading his and young Arthur's Le Sonnet Du Trou Du Cul?


  1. They should have a plaque for Orton and Halliwell, but with little red flecks splattered across it for added poignancy.
