I stumbled upon this video while scrolling through my social media, groggy and a bit tired and not really coherent to be honest (I wasn't hung over just lack of sleep!) then found this. I saw it was about coming out and a gay crush and it intrigued me as I have never seen an … Continue reading In a heartbeat.

Finally however things are starting to look up. I’ve cracked down and been full steam ahead on my career, setting up the foundations for … Continue reading Looking up
Liability is something I’ve dicscovered only recently. I’ve been a great fan of Lorde ever since her debut Pure Heroine. The song is a new one, from her new album Melodrama, which on a whole I absolutely love. This song in particular however connects to me very deeply. My favourite part of the song is … Continue reading Liability.
So this is a post and topic I’ve written about before. This ones different. Recently I’ve had to say goodbye, hopefully not forever but who knows, to something incredibly close to me. Basically read Distance, and you will know what I’m saying goodbye too and it won’t sound like such a riddle. Something. Someone. I … Continue reading Letting go II.

The title is a quote from Simone de Beauvoir. Its a quote that sums this post up rather well. The inspiration for me to write this came from watching a program on BBC Three called Queer Britain. It is a documentary that explores different sectors of the LGBTQ Community and the prejudice and problems that they … Continue reading To lose confidence in one’s body is to lose confidence in oneself.
There's often questions in regards to how life is in many different aspects of the world when being gay. What's it like being a gay politician? A gay policeman? A gay Doctor? Now I'm no Politician, Policeman or Doctor, however I do run my own business and interact a lot in business culture. How's life … Continue reading Being gay in business.
I struggle waking up. Being snuggled up in bed, nice and warm. Dreaming of great great things. Then the alarm goes off. Ghoastly thing. Now this isn't an alarm like you might think. It doesn't make a noise (well grunts occasionally), but it's the alarm clock in my mind. I wake up at 7:30 everyday, … Continue reading Why I wake up every morning

Another artist I absolutely truely love, is Celine Dion. I have always been a great fan of her music, from her early work, and also her more recent work, with 'Loved me Back to Life'.

I have gone for a more modern one of my favourite songs. This time, Sia, with Space Between. I find this song incredibly captivating, with the simple repetitive beat in the background, and bass line throughout the song, instead of being boring as what you would expect from such a simple repetitive chord, it pulls … Continue reading “The space between is deafening…”
The other day, during one of my walks I thought about recent events and said to myself, 'why didn't I come out sooner?'. The amount of love and support I have received, has been astounding. I always held back thinking people would see me differently and not feel the same way about me as they … Continue reading Why didn’t I come out sooner?
I often hear the term queer used these days. Gender queer, identifying as queer. I however, technically 'queer' as the term defines, have never really liked the term. When I looked up the definition of queer, as a word, it's often connected to 'abnormality' and 'strangeness', unorthodox thinking. I don't feel me being gay is … Continue reading Why I dislike the term ‘Queer’
The last week has seen me do something I never usually do. Go for a simple walk. My mindset, being business minded, is go go go. All the time. Cycling, running, University, Business, Keynotes, slides, typing. Always go go go. However lately I have found myself, burnt out. My head hurt, I was rather emotionally … Continue reading Nature is the best medicine for a broken mind.
I have had this conversation many times with many different people from all over the world. Personally I am very disappointed after this election, even more so than the 2015 one.

Love is a difficult one. Theres three types of love in my opinion. You have love for your family, love for your friends, and romantic love with a partner. Now my problem with love is you can't choose who you love. You love who your heart decides to love, and thats it. You can love … Continue reading Love is not a losing game. It can hurt a lot, but its priceless.
