Rainbow Time in Oxford
Oxford's Rainbow Flags: "whatever's going on?", I thought to myself, as I saw first Hertford, then Wadham (& Gomorrah), then New College, sporting rainbow flags today. So, ever the scientist, at New College porters' lodge, I asked. "It's for gay and lesbian and transexual ..." "Oh, I know what it means, but why TODAY?" "It's all week, sir" "Good heavens. I wonder if they're doing it in Christ Church - in my day, we only acknowledged one Queen". And he laughed like a drain, and I went on my way, enlightened.
