Gay, lesbian and intersex whales: our queer sea has much to teach us
The first documented sex between two male humpback whales is just the latest challenge to our presumptions about sexualityWhales are extraordinarily sensuous creatures. Those blubbery bodies are highly sensitive, and sensitised. At social meetings, pods of sperm, humpback and right whales will roll around one another ’s bodies for hours at a time. I’ve seen a group of right whales engaged in foreplay and penetration lasting an entire morning.I have also watched a male-female couple so blissfully conjoined that they appeared unbothered by our little fishing boat as they passed underneath it. And in what may sound like a...

NHS pay key to cutting waiting lists, says UNISON
Commenting on the publication of the government’s evidence to the NHS pay review body, UNISON acting head of health Helga Pile said: “NHS workers should be getting this year’s wage rise in a matter of weeks.

This simply isn’t good enough. “Unless the government gets a handle on pay and gives health workers a fair wage rise this year, many experienced staff will continue to be lost from the service. “It’s time ministers ...
