New Music: Coeds “Sensitive Boys”

Our review of COEDS new track

Backseat Mafia


Before being asked to review the new track from the Coeds, I had never heard of them, which I suppose is the case in most reviews but this track and duo are very likeable. I was really impressed with the song itself, falling directly into what you might identify as electro pop. Coeds are made up from members Merideth Muñoz & Ryan Kailath and they come from Austin, TX / New York, NY.

They started writing songs in the Summer of 2013 after a three-year haitus (the pair are old friends). While Ryan was in town for a visit, they laid down ‘Sensitive Boys’ just for fun in very little time, and were pleasantly surprised by what they heard. So much so, they continued to collaborate online, despite the distance between the two, and they released their first single in January 2014.

Humberside Police Appeal, Do you know this man’s identity?


Article Posted (27 January, 2014 @ 14:51:22)

Police need assistance to locate the friends and family of man in North East Lincolnshire

In around September 2013 a man was brought to the attention of police in North East Lincolnshire who appeared to be sleeping rough in the Cleethorpes area. Since that time police and a number of agencies have been working to try and establish an identity for the man, however this has proved unsuccessful.

The man, who has been fully co-operative with the police and the other agencies, gave his name as David THORPE, or a first name of Tony, and his date of birth as 05 October 1955. A thorough search of both police and NHS systems cannot find a man with those details. He states he thought he was from the Rotherham area, but was not sure and he could have connections in Blackpool. Continue reading Humberside Police Appeal, Do you know this man’s identity?

Our very own meet-up!

Scunthorpe & N Lincs LGBTQ

Note that this article contains words that some readers may find to show us to be stereotyping

On facebook, a new event which literally took facebook famous people by storm are ‘meet-ups’ where a huge group of facebookers meet. Usually, they all end up with Police being called and with eggs and flour being thrown at someone.

Approximately 1-in-3 young people are gay, lesbian or bi-sexual and half of the time, we don’t even know about it! There are so many reasons why young people would want to keep their sexuality quiet.

Inspired by the meet-ups hosted on facebook, some members of Scunthorpe LGBT are thinking of planning one but before we host one, we want to find out what you would think if we did host one.

We are inviting you and your friends to come along and meet new people, no matter what sexuality. We would like anybody…
