Thought For The Day: Tom Wells

"As a gay man, you experience low-level homophobia on a day-to-day basis. People take the piss or imitate you or just use gay as a slang adjective, even your friends. It's not weird. It's the accepted form of prejudice. So to go from that to some teenagers kicking you in – it's not a massive leap, actually. I think that the world's a bit more homophobic than you realise if you're straight."
Tom Wells talking to The Independent.

Tom's play Jumpers For Goalposts - about a gay five-a-side football team in Hull - is at the Bush Theatre in that London. 
He sounds so posh Fagurn fears the sequel may be called Jolly Hockey Sticks.
