Obnoxious about my transition

I met a friends ex-wife today and at first she didn’t recognise me at all but then she worked out, after 30 minutes, who I used to be and was quite obnoxious about my transition and started to ask some very personal questions. She then wondered why I got quite defensive in my replies until […]

The Night after the Night before

One of the downsides for me of having such a vibrant, active social life is when I have a night out and then don't go out the night after. I get this night after the night before feeling. Let me explain. Fortunately, I have a very active social life and when I go out I [...]

That’s not me anymore

I’ve been having a talk today with Kevin who who is a great leveller and sage despite his younger years and I was talking about amalgamating an old website with this one and wondering whether or not I should do that because the old website is my past and this is my future. The old […]

A night on the town with abusive behaviour, 17/04/21

Tonight I’ve had the misfortune to experience a tirade of homophobic, transphobic and drunken abusive behaviour from somebody on a night out in Manchester’s, Gay Village.
