BBC sports commentator Jacqui Oatley has revealed how her seven-year-old daughter was "told to play Hula Hoops" instead of football because the boys "wouldn't pass to girls". Speaking on Good Morning Britain this morning, the seasoned broadcaster described how she had first dropped off her four-year-old son to football before taking her elder child to another class at the same centre. But when she arrived to pick her up from the hour-long class, she was told: "Oh, we never got to play". "The boys wouldn't pass to us so the coach told us to go over there and play with the Hula Hoops," her daughter told her. Ms Oatley, who made her name as the first female football commentator in England, immediately lodged a complaint with the manager. "You're kidding," the 44-year-old told presenters. "Luckily I was still in the club so I complained straight to the manager, they said it would never happen again." The boys wouldn't pass to us so the coach told us to go over there and play with the Hula … [Read more...] about BBC sports commentator Jacqui Oatley reveals daughter, 7, was ‘told to play Hula Hoops’ instead of football because the boys ‘wouldn’t pass to girls’
MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry are said to want to raise their child on a vegan diet. The Queen though is thought not to be amused by the idea. Is Meghan Markle a vegan? The Duchess of Sussex, 37, has never confirmed she is vegan. Meghan only eats a plant-based diet during the week - and since meeting the 37-year-old, Harry has reportedly been opting for "less meat and more fruit and veg", according to reports. The pair are also said to have been following a healthier lifestyle in the run up to the birth. While Meghan has always been keen on yoga, the pair are thought to have built a "floating yoga studio" at their new home in Windsor, which is reported to be decorated "in vegan paint". Will she raise the royal baby meat-free? If Meghan and Harry did want their child to follow a similar diet, it's likely the young royal wouldn't be completely vegan. Royal sources have claimed that the Duchess - who once joked she's a "hippie chick" - has requested Frogmore … [Read more...] about Is Meghan Markle a vegan, will she raise the royal baby meat-free, and why does The Queen not approve of the trendy plant-based diet for Baby Sussex?

YANGON (Reuters) - Contestants ran a stiletto race and swirled hula hoops at a park in Myanmar's biggest city on Sunday in the Drag Olympics as a highlight of the Yangon Pride festival. The attendance of an estimated 2,000 people at the Thakin Mya Park was a sign of change in a predominantly Buddhist country where traditionalism is strong and homosexuality is a crime under a law inherited from British colonialists, organisers said. It was the fifth time that the festival has been held, but only the second year it has happened in a public place. "When we started this, people did not really dare to come to this kind of festival," said Hla Mat Tun, a co-director of the festival from the &Proud group. "Now you see a lot of young people. Young people are more proud and out and encouraged and empowered." But he said lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people continued to face harassment and that social change was needed as well as changes to Myanmar's laws. Activists complain that … [Read more...] about Stiletto races and hula hoops at Pride festival in Myanmar
