Welcome, 2019. A special year. Fifty years ago, in June 1969, patrons of The Stonewall Inn in New York grew tired of yet another raid by the police. Gay, lesbians, bisexuals and mostly: transgenders, transvestites and dragqueens fought back. Those were the Stonewall Riots.
It’s Formula 1 time. The 2018 F1 season gets underway in Melbourne this Sunday. When I was in Australia in 2011 I went to walk the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit in Albert Park. The annual construction was underway.
