NHS medical number issues

I know I haven’t written about my gender journey for quite some time but this is something those wishing to pursue a gender change on their medical records need to be aware of as it might cause you problems and that’s changing your NHS medical number. On the 23rd November my primary care provider, which …

Traumas

You know what pisses me off when people say, “all the trauma you’ve been through in life, they must have made you stronger”. No. No they didn’t! All that trauma actually did was give me some very weird coping skills, a fucked up sense of humour and a lot of really nasty habits and kinks!

What you see online

What you see online is only a representation of someone’s life, whether they be good or bad bits and doesn’t represent our daily lives. People look at my online life and say to me, “Oh my god Mikki, you have such a wonderful life”, but what you see online is only a small selection of …

Token Gay Friend

Am I the token gay friend? I want to know as I’m meeting people who i find both emotionally and physically attractive but I always seem to end up as their “trans friend” or “gay friend” Which I guess, kind of makes me the token gay friend! Someone to confide in, someone to tell about …

The great British Toilet versus Transgender debate

I’ve been having many conversations with my friends over the past couple of weeks about “The great British Toilet versus Transgender debate” and the rights the government’s plans to change the law to define gender and how we as British people use the toilet! The UK Government, or more precisely the Tory party, are pursuing …

Really angry

Yet again another human being has let me down and you know what I’m really angry. I’m not angry with the other person, I’m angry with myself, for letting them inside my mental fortress again. I promised myself, after the last one, that I wouldn’t do it. I have my closed circle of friends and …

Is being transgender the new social pariah?

Is being transgender, the new social pariah? I’ve been mulling over this idea now for a couple of months. As I’m seeing it more and more on the news and I’ve had a number of conversations about this with friends and colleagues. I see that the transgender community is definitely becoming more and more the …

Response to Rishi Sunak saying misgendering trans people is ‘common sense’

After the Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak’s party conference speech this week, 4th October 2023, saying that misgender transgender people is ‘common sense’, I find myself feeling unsafe in my own country for the first time in my life. Pink News: Rishi Sunak says misgendering trans people is ‘common sense’ in Tory conference speech. He said …

Equinox 2023

Perhaps the best festival of the 2023, mainly because I was around so many of my friends and also working on the Sunrise stage, A really beautiful festival with many stages and some great acts. Because I was with so many friends this weekend I didn't take many photos of the stages, Thank you so …

Don’t play with my heart

My heart is yours, If you want it babes, It’s there for the taking, On a silver platter, All I ask if you take it though, Is you don’t break it, That’s all that matters. You know that I love you, You know that I care, But sometimes I wonder, If you want me at …

How I deal with misgendering

I don’t get misgendered very often these days but this is how I deal with misgendering. Do it once, it’s annoying but okay! Do it twice, and beware, you’re on notice. Do it 3 times and I’ll distance myself from you so quickly you won’t believe it, and have done on numerous occasions. I’m four …

Can you business afford to ignore the Transgender Dollar, or pound?

Let me ask you a serious question. Can your business afford to ignore the transgender dollar, or transgender pound? This is a question I keep asking myself, especially when I get stonewalled by businesses because I am transgender. As many transgender people are generally affluent and have money to spend in businesses, and some businesses …

It’s not Transphobia. It’s Transmisia!

Let’s explain why transmisia should be used, as transphobia is perhaps not the right word for what some people show to the trans community. Let me explain this. A phobia, specifically transphobia, is the fear of something, in this case transgender people. Transgender people such as myself and many of my friends. This is more …

Landed festival 2023

I've just returned from Landed Festival 2023 and what a fantastic event. Really has been a great festival, second only to Bearded theory in May. Fantastic stages, great company, amazing music and congratulations to all involved as this year's landed festival was really well organised. Just a week after Nozstock found me stood on the …

A chemical imbalance inside my brain

A mental brainwash, chemically eroded, Parts of my brain, got corroded, Giving me this momentary indisposition, Of being in such, a strange position. My brain is firing, at Lightening speed, So damn fast, it don’t want to heed! Sometimes these thoughts, got me slightly frightened, Almost like, all my senses becoming massively heightened. Something inside …

Am I okay?

So, you ask, Am I okay? What’s that even mean? In a grandiose, scheme of things. Am I okay? Do you give a shit? The answers, no, But we all say yes. Because otherwise, you can not handle, What’s going on inside my head. Don’t listen to me ramble, Existential bullshit preamble Am I okay? …

The trans conversion ban bill is apparently now in its final stages and just waiting for a sign-off from the UK prime minister, Rishi Sunak.
