Pride(s) 2019

Last year, I went to Pride for the first time. Unfortunately, my first event was Pride In London, which I have since denounced as a result of the TERF infiltration in 2018. Another reason it's been avoided by me is the lack of accessibility partnered with busy crowds (making access harder, but also inducing anxiety).… Continue reading Pride(s) 2019

Non-Binary Pride

Today is International Non-Binary People's Day, and we want to be heard. I'm sitting here writing this with my pronouns tattooed on my head in make-up. I have no intricate skills and am generally a messy human being, so it's not completely perfect, but it's the statement that matters; maybe they'll respect my pronouns then.… Continue reading Non-Binary Pride

Rare Disease Talks: RuPaul’s Drag Race (2019)

On what is not far off of the year anniversary for my 'Rare Disease Talks' post where I spoke about BBC's Casualty's representation of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (PoTS), I'm back with another*. This one varies slightly, with the representation being served upon a reality television show, but I think this… Continue reading Rare Disease Talks: RuPaul’s Drag Race (2019)

They seem to have, each time, gone down a treat, so since the end of 2018 has brought me a tonne of new things, and at that, things I love, I wanted to share the things I'm happily bringing into 2019 with… Continue reading My 2018 favourites I’m carrying into the New Year

Valid: Mental Health Awareness and National Coming Out Day

This week has held two very important events directly relevant to my life, and... I never had a chance to speak about them. The truth is, on these days I wasn't feeling too fabulous, so I really had to prioritise my spoons, physically and emotionally, but these were also too important to me to simply… Continue reading Valid: Mental Health Awareness and National Coming Out Day

What PRIDE means to me

Pride is something I've been raised to have a careful balance with. Before, I never really knew why that mattered, but in more recent years, I have most certainly used it to my advantage. Pride meant little to me growing up. I knew it to bear something on confidence (in a good way) but also… Continue reading What PRIDE means to me

What Drag Race Has Done For My Confidence

RuPaul's Drag Race. It's queer culture. It's your feel good reality show with a high dosage of shaaade. In my last post, I actually referenced a specific moment from the show to coherently express my feelings on a matter, but today I speak of a much more generalised topic surrounding the show; Confidence. Confidence? How… Continue reading What Drag Race Has Done For My Confidence
