OUR 15th YEAR OF OPERATION.
WELCOME


Stradivarius started over 15 years ago as my own personal home page. Since then it has grown organically to become perhaps one of  the leading web site in the UK for older gay men.

The original home pages have been seperated from the main site where those interested can find out a little about the editor. 

Most pages on the main site can now be accessed from this page rather than through secondary pages.

IN MEMORIUM
PHIL STARR

Phil Starr, one of the last of the old school of drag artistes who died in October 2005 at the age of 73. He performed all over London for some 50 years and his passing will bring sorrow to all his many fans including myself.
