Do it right

Hi All,

You may have heard on the news about recent events in Australia regarding the chamber in laws against same sex marriages. If you haven't, then we'll let's just say Australia are in the dark ages with this issue and really need to reform. I never realised that they didn't already have legalised same sex marriages, as I thought this would have been something that would have been addressed years ago. But here we are in 2017 and still there are countries that are considered to have 'western ideals' that haven't changed their laws for the LGBTQIA communities.

The polls have not been an easy ride so far. Demonstrations have occurred from communities that abhor same alex marriage and even recently people funded a sky wrter to write 'vote no' in the sky above Sydney. These are powerful statements from the people who wish to eradicate LGBTQIA from Australia, and would rather not have any other people than heterosexuals in Australia. Those same people also have a fear of non-whites and constantly aspire to racist and prejudiced beliefs. This shocked me as I didn't think people were being truthful when they commented on Australia in such a way. I have met many young Australian people and can honestly say they haven't had these views, at least not publicly, and so I assumed the ideals aligned with those of the UK in that sense.

But I applaud any of my fellow LGBTQIA who are standing up against this and fighting for their rights. Rights which I believe are fundamental to present times, and should allow people to live freely and openly without fear of hatred or judgement. Gay Twitter, which has shown itself to be powerful in the social media stronghold, has openly spoken out against demonstrators and the sky writing, and done so with a level of dignity that these demonstrators haven't shown. Whilst I do believe people are entitled to their own opinions, when it comes to the rights of LGBTQIA people, we must fight to have the same basic rights that everyone else has. So far I have seen mixed reviews on how the Lola's will go. So I plead to Australians who don't share the views of these people, please make the right choice. Love is love no matter what. Let these people find love and have the same rights as you.

Do it right.

Welcome to my house

Hi All, I got the best news this week! I’m going to be a home (flat) owner!!!! For those that know me and my story you will know that this is a big deal. It means I can finally move out of my parents place and start living life the way I want to, and in pride month no less. What better opportunity could I ask for? It means that I can live with the love of my life, and do all the cute and fun couple-y things that we were always meant to do.  It means I can just be me. That’s the main point really. No more hiding who I am, no more having to answer to others. Free to be who I want, go where I want, come back to the flat whoever I want. It’s not like I’m in a jail sentence at home, but the comments made on how late I come back home do take their toll. I’m the type of person who wants it to be easy, don’t cause too much of a fuss and that way no fights or arguments happen. I mean I am human and I will provoke sometimes, but for the most part I’m easy going and want things to be

Out

Hi all, Hope everyone is keeping safe from the pandemic and that the pressures are starting to ease off a little in terms of lockdown. It has definitely been a strange year, and it will continue to be for a little while longer. I honestly feel we should write off 2020 and forget it ever happened. Despite all the tragedies and despair there have been nice things to come from it. People are being friendlier towards each other and helping neighbours. They are innovating in times of need and helping out in any way that they can. It will be tough to move forward, and the effects of the lockdown will last for a generation, but we will endure. My post is about a little gem that I found on Disney+ called Out. It's a short animation about a closeted gay man who is struggling to tell his parents about his boyfriend, and the reason he is moving because of it. This is a first for Disney, as they have never really showed an out and proud gay character in anything before. They have alluded

I could be your private island

 Hi all, It's been a while since I last wrote a post, and to be honest not much has gone on in my world. Except for a pandemic, starting a new job and celebrating one year in the flat. So yeah, not much but also a lot! This year has been crazy, and it doesn't look like it will get any less crazy anytime soon. The pandemic is still rife, and affecting everyone and everything. I truly hope you are all keeping well and trying to maintain social distance with face coverings and hand gels galore. It has affected all walks of life, has made us adapt to a 'new normal' and has forced us to re-think our daily lives in general. One aspect that has affected everyone is travel. Be it local travel on public services, or the all elusive holiday abroad, we have all been affected. Bae has not been able to see his parents since the beginning, and every little sliver of a chance he gets to go back, the rules inevitably change and it becomes harder. I for one am tired of not having a holi
