Poppers: Want Some More?

Slightly OTT Independent article that looks sounds like it was written after a trip to Prowler Soho and a good Google.

The author quotes academic, Lucy Robinson; “If you trace the bottle of amyl [a type of alkyl nitrite] through late 20th-century history, you trace the legacies of gay culture on popular culture in the 20th century."


He also cites Ian Young's The Stonewall Experiment seeingly oblivious to how the book claimed that poppers cause Aids!

PS Independent News also report that police in Birmingham have been siezing poppers and other legal highs from shops and venues before a ban has become law.

Update: The tabloids are going big with this; Elvis Snelson died after taking a legal high at Manchester Pride.
