Fat shaming – great interview with Beth Ditto

Whether it’s butch vs femme, focussing on the body…

It’s a Yes for Marriage Equality in Ireland #MarRef

Congratulations Ireland For the first time, since marriage equality campaigning began, a whole country has had the opportunity to vote for, or against, Equal Marriage – and by overwhelming majority have voted for equality.

Equal marriage is here

The first gay marriages happened today from midnight.

I Knew It!!!

I’ve always thought that Wentworth Miller was pure class…and now he’s proved my point, coming out in defence of our gay Russian cousins in a very public way!!

I don’t remember getting home from Brighton Pride!!

I cannot believe we disconapped through most of The party!!! After a truly alcoholic Friday night out, getting really ‘proud’ and a Saturday morning gym session (for the Dazzler, I read a book) we looked at the weather, which was a little overcast and decided to have a little disconap to give us a boost…

’twas the NIGHT before Pride!!!!’

Ok, very drunk so this is just going to be my Instagram feed…. God this photo is awful but I’m only being silly…and have realised this is the first proper selfie on my blog!! Someone up there loves us as on the way into town we spotted this baby!! The Dazzler bringing our, 4th, maybe…
