What is www.SteTay.com?
It's my own little space to express my views, opinions and thoughts on all sorts of things. The site averages 60,000 hits each month, so it can't be that bad!
If you want to know more about me, my interests, my work and my love, then read my online Biography.
Prisons & Penal Reform
Most of my work relates to prisons and penal reform, of which I am an ardent and vociferous supporter. This prisons section of the site is intended as an introduction to the issues... and why I am concerned.
Gay prisoners are perhaps the most discriminated against group of people within our penal system, and yet little is done for them. Action is needed ... now!
The British criminal justice 'system', often cited as being the best in the world, is a mess. Here I explain the issues that concern me..
The most comprehensive collection of photographs of British prisons available on the internet!
The Death Penalty
There can be no place in 'civilised' society for such a brutal and yet ineffectual punishment. The facts of the matter are plainly clear...
The Life Sentence
The Life Sentence is an anachronism from the days when Britain abolished capital punishment. It should be abolished, or, at least, reformed.
The Bulger Case
The murder of James Bulger was the defining crime of the 1990's. In recent months, my commentary on the case and the release of his killers has been heard far and wide, and this section of the website is one of only a handful in the UK supporting their release.
Essays, Articles & Journalism
I write widely for a range of publications, on various issues including prison and penal reform, gay politics, and the criminal justice system. Most are online here and can be downloaded.
Victims of Crime
Victims of crime are all to often forgotten in our criminal justice system. Drawing on a few high- profile cases, I set my viewpoint straight...
Interviews with the late Lord Longford, The Rt Hon Anne Widdecombe MP, and more coming soon!
A Tribute to Robbie
My closest friend, Robbie, died in July 2001, in prison. This is my tribute to a friend who meant so much, and yet in popular eyes, was just a murderer.
Another of my hobby-horses is Christianity, and the way in which is presents itself as a moderate all- embracing body. I compare Church policy on criminal justice and homophobia to show that consistency is far from a Christian theme.
The Gay Bit
Sorry, there's no naked men. Just my rants about the false idea of a gay 'community' and how the quest for equality has to stretch beyond the door to the local gay pub.
Links to recommended criminal justice, prison, and gay links, and to my website of the week!
My take on various recent events in politics, criminal justice, and other areas. Updated every few days.
David McNamara, aka "Anti-Porn Guy", set up a website in 2000 to spread his homophobic, sexist, fascist and racist views. The section of my site written to answer his points is still online - he isn't!

A page all about Steve and his partner of two years, Mathew. Online again soon!

The British Republic
Long gone are the days of Britain being some world ruler or superstate. Long gone also are the days of the Royal Family. We should embrace Europe and reject the ancient rituals of a long dead England!
