I came across a news story that sounds like it's straight out of The Onion — the city of Canterbury, England, has just been ruled "sufficiently gay" after government inspectors were called in to investigate claims that the city did not do enough to promote homosexual culture.
So how did the panel of investigators come to this determination? By consulting a checklist of stereotypes of course! The city had to supply proof that it supports events "of interest to the LGBT community," such as "touring plays and musicals."
The two-month investigation kicked off after some members of the gay community expressed concern that the historically religious city was unwelcoming to gay people.
