When walking through Peckham during my stay in London, that’s sadly already almost four weeks in the past, I stumbled over a sign in front of a small café announcing they’d make one of the best sandwiches of London and have been awarded by the British Sandwich Association. Yes, that’s right, there’s an official institution, guarding the quality of the British sandwich and their url is, naturally, sandwich.org.uk. I love it.

I have to be honest with you: before watching Behind the Candelabra, I didn’t have any idea who Liberace was. Call me ignorant, call me not gay enough, or call me too young. Calling myself too young at the age of 30, on the other hand, is so gay that I will have to go with ignorant after all. Yesterday a film came out in Berlin that might feel inappropriate for this column and you might ask yourself why I want to talk about it. It got tons of good press already, it has Michael Douglas and Matt Damon in it, and it so glamorous that it stands out from the selection of small films that I usually discuss. But apart from being a glamorous, fabulous and insightful travel into the times of “Walter” Liberace, Behind the Candelabra is an astonishing testament of a film that was made for television and its queer discourse.
When asking for recommendations for London on Facebook, I received so many tips, I was about to cross off one of my pre-made list because I thought I wouldn’t need it considering so many cool new options: Ottolenghi.
