queer: Stay classy, Top Gear!

Just heard this snippet on Gaydar Radio as I was on my way out the door to work this morning. Alastair Campbell recently appeared on the BBC show Top Gear and wrote about an exchange between himself and host Jeremy Clarkson that was cut from the air on his blog.

In case you haven’t been following my twitter or Facebook account… I’m almost done with radiation therapy! Barring any complications, Tuesday will be my last day for treatment, the lesions have responded really well and are nearly gone with only...
