All roads eventually lead to Cyprus...

I don’t have a passport or Cypriot nationality but my heart is Cypriot, not Greek or Turkish Cypriot, just Cypriot. I enjoy a passionate love affair with my birthplace. - Angela Bowie.


Although it’s probably not very well known, the late rock star David Bowie had a connection to Cyprus in the early seventies as his first wife Mary Angela Barnett was born in Ayios Dhometios in Nicosia on September 25, 1949

...strange how the world is connected. As a youth in the early eighties, i enjoyed dancing, and performing. One night a friend of my friend asked me how i did a step, at the disco, that was unique to me. Years later i found out that he was David Bowie's choreographer, it was no accident to see the dancing that he, this great performer, was doing on stage, in a video, was what i could call "mine". I have always considered this to be one of my life's successes, that i taught David Bowie how to dance, so to speak. It is nice that a woman he loved takes a view so strongly that i feel and in the same way, everyday.

Cheers! David Bowie, R.I.P.

David Bowie was a poofter and I would not boast about being associated with him in any way.

He could "Dance" alright, especially if he got behind you whilst you were tying up your shoe-laces.

A fine example for the youth of any nation to emulate, the doped up poofter should have been lobbed off the roof years ago. 8)

Well, she's half English and half Polish with some American connections so if you are as mixed up as her, then you can call yourself what you like - She's just going by what the Colonial Brits dictated, after all - attempts to dissolve our Greek identity, especially back in 1949 when she was born.

P.S. I see her father ran one of our mines - you know, rich mines that the colonialists bled dry of minerals and useful deposits!

I cannot agree with you GIG, it was the Brits who first gave us these identities, "Greeks" and "Turks"; to this day the people in and from my village identify themselves as Cypriots, but then that is what we were called, then: mixed. I suggest to you with your attitude, that being "Greek" to be a Cypriot will only lead to the extinction of Greek entirely. Think about it.

@Garavnoss, you may be a latent homosexual yourself, i suspect that your own fears are as such.

Considering the fact that YOU are seemingly delighted with the notion that you may have taught the poofter how to dance, it would be a far more likely assumption that YOU are of the same persuasions as he.

Actually, I will readily confess that [after reading many of your posts] it has often crossed my mind that YOU are a bit of a poofter on the quiet but, until now, I have considered it impolite to broach the subject of another's sexuality providing they keep it to themselves.

Perhaps I do not possess the same levels of "Sophistication" required by today's society when it comes to accepting such perversions, it is OK by me if others are able to accept such standards of morality but, I DO wish the poofters [and others] would not be so proud of their unnatural habits, it MUST be detrimental to the welfare of the younger generations.

As to yourself, IF you are [as I suspect] one of them, get in line mate, the rooftops are waiting. :lol:

No, RW, it was not the Brits who told us we are Hellenes. The Turks were referred to as Muhammadans, and that's because they are.

Cypriot as a term an was set up in the same way as "British" is set up. It's a political construct. Of course you can be proud to be a Cypriot, if you have Cypriot i.d. just as you can be proud to be British if you have British i.d. But after the politics comes our history, migrations and our time in this part of the world. Our humanity. And that is why the majority of native Cypriots are Hellenes.
