Rather than expecting communities to travel to the big cities to engage with the community forever, Not A Phase is actively, from its inception, meeting people throughout the UK wherever they are based and supporting them in their existing community. Photography by Meg McGrady for their project on queers and rurality, Away With The Fairies The actual Y.M.C.A, were initially unhappy with the Village People using their name in their song and attempted to sue the group, reportedly because executives took exception to group’s overwhelmingly gay following at that point.

Despite claiming to be homosexual himself, Dafydd is actually a very homophobic person. He will also get angry whenever people are not homophobic towards him. This works both ways, however, as whenever an opportunity does present itself Dafydd will treat people as if they had made harsh comments about him. Notable examples include: - In every single one of his appearances, Dafydd Thomas will persistently claim that he is "The Only Gay in the Village". This was altered to "The Only Gay on Campus" in Little Britain USA, and "The Only Gay on the Greek island of Mykonos" in Little Britain Abroad. Dafydd has short blonde hair, and often wears tight fitting clothes, usually made of lycra or PVC vinyl. He also wears a few pieces of jewelery.I’ve wanted to go to Pride events in London but they don’t often mention accessibility”, says Emma, who is a wheelchair user living in a very rural village. “It’s like you have to find a subgroup of queer disabled spaces, instead of being included in what’s meant to be an inclusive community.” Daffyd Thomas has been the subject of much debate amongst the Little Britain fandom.

I have a hard time changing where I live and have a lot of anxiety about being stranded with no help. Still, I am really limited here which can be so frustrating. London is worse in a lot of ways though. I don’t know anyone with an accessible house and public transport is either nonexistent for disabled people or really expensive.”
I was talking to the gay community about what they liked, what they wanted to listen to musically, and what was their dream, their fantasy. One day [producer Jacques Morali and I] were walking in the streets of New York. I remember clearly it was down in the Village, and we saw an Indian walking down the street and heard the bells on his feet. We followed him into a bar. He was a bartender — he was serving and also dancing on the bar. And while we were watching him dancing and sipping our beer, we saw a cowboy watching him dance.Cities frequently are portrayed as epicenters of tolerance, community, and freedom.
