Is that gay in the traditional happy sense? Or the ever so politically correct sense.

No homophobic tendencies meant, just that the dictionary definition of gay was "happy".

I may have altered the sign....

ah, that'll teach me to look more closely at things when half asleep then :)

Oh shame, I was hoping that was real :)

Just using the word "gay" is eversopoliticallycorrect 540 air? That's a bit of a no-win situation for the word gay.

OJ - No no, what I meant was that these days the use of the word 'gay' seems to instantly mean a description of a sexual preference rather than just meaning happy. I'm not sure exactly what I meant about being politically correct, other than perhaps some gay men may take offence if referred to as homosexual rather than gay. In my defence, I was tired and I'm known to spout meaningless nonsensical rubbish at the best of times, so when sleepy it just gets worse :)

I hope no offence has been caused, and if it has, I apologise.

OJ says:

I'm not offended 540 air, just interrogating you - in the sense of questioning, not lights in the eyes.

There are sections of the press, [cough] Daily Mail [cough] that think it's political correctness gone mad to call those homosexuals anything other than faggots and queers. Blah...

More gay buildings please Steve :)

540air says:

Ah, ok, I see what you mean. Have to confess, I rarely read a paper these days so was blissfully unaware.

My take is, people are people, I'm not going to like or dislike a person because of their sexual preferences. :)

Very Gray would be more apt, I think, in this building's case.

Steve says:

It is rather apt at the end of the evening and all the actors and designers come out of the theatre which faces it.

"540air says:

Or women.

540air says:

It'd be hard to explain what I meant by that in text without it being open to misinterpretation, so I'll have a think about how best to put it and minimize risks, but.... on a lighter note, reading that last "Or women" part instantly made me think of Monty Python's "Life of Brian" :)
