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

This is the end

Hi All, I hope you have all been well, and that these troubled times of COVID are getting better in your respective countries. Thankfully with the vaccines out things will eventually get better and somewhat back to normal. I hope everyone is staying strong during these times too, as they are tough and have really tested humanity to almost breaking point. I realise it has been a long time since my last post. I mentioned a few posts ago that I have run out of things to say about my journey. I have a wonderful partner, a lovely home with him and a nice balance with my family who I can keep my secret life a secret from. So things are going well. This is something the 'me' of a few years ago would have never imagined. I remember a time when I was doubtful I would ever be this happy and in a long term relationship. But I persevered and am better for it now. Even during a pandemic and lockdown(s) I have remained happy, and thankful that I could still work.  I guess one of the reasons


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
