Those seeking something a little more contentious will be heading to Gay Shame, the ninth "annual festival of homosexual misery", provocatively scheduled on the same day as Big Gay Out, the official Pride party in London's Finsbury Park. I hate the way the gay identity has been co-opted by commercial interests. It reminds me of Railtrack - and I think we're heading for a big crash. Shame is the brainchild of the Duckie collective; like their regular weekly club night, it's become a refuge for gay people who don't fit the mould. Previous events have been deliberately small-scale, cheap and club-based; on Saturday, Shame ventures outside Duckie's small south-London home, the Vauxhall Tavern, to the 2,capacity Coronet in nearby Elephant and Castle.

While most credit scholars Jean-Francois Champollion and Thomas Young with deciphering the stone, the museum has said that William John Bankes also deserves recognition. Bankes, a politician and Egyptologist, was instrumental in uncovering the meaning of the stone in the early s. Other objects added to the tour include a Roman terracotta oil lamp showing two women engaging in sex and a Greek coin depicting female poet Sappho. Museums can reopen on July 4. Five new objects, including the lamp, a novelty 'nine bob note', a Greek coin depicting Sappho, Kabuki prints and a medallion from a cross-dressing spy will go on display in the museum.
