Chapel Of Love


The Oscar Wilde Temple by artists McDermott & McGough.

Studio Voltaire, 1a Nelsons Row, London SW4.

A church dedicated to the Irish poet and playwright is now open and free to the public for six months, until March 31, 2019 – “to all faiths and non–believers alike”.

They say:

Individuals and families will be welcomed into The Oscar Wilde Temple for private reflection as well as to celebrate LGBTQ+ marriages, naming ceremonies, vow renewals, memorials and markings of other important occasions….

In fairness.

    Its a nice idea, but why only LGBTQ+ marriages? Why can’t a heterosexual couple get married there?

    That seems unnecessarily discriminatory.

      ’cause a heterosexual couple can get married practically anywhere – any church in the land.
      LGBTQ+ is more restrictive.

      Oh, and because OW was gay!

        If they’re preaching a message of tolerance though they shouldn’t ban a section of the population arbitrarily. Its extremely hypocritical.

        “Equality and acceptance for all! Except you people”.

          If you want to have your heterosexual marriage there, just ring up and ask them. I can’t see you being refused.

      I didn’t know if t’was the big giant thumb tacks or the crassness of the rules done out like bullet points
      I was thinking that Oscar himself would’ve snarled back at them
      before redrawing them genteelly and poetically

      but maybe now you’re right
      its the font

      a bit too Upstairs Downstairs

    For Women with Penises. And men without.

    Because Transgender-ism is a real thing because we say it is.

    Because it’s not just in our heads.
