Friday 11th October is National Coming Out Day. Coming out. What a simple term for an incredibly complex and [continuous] process. Coming out sounds as if you ‘out’ yourself, just the once, and from then on everybody will just know. And that’s it, job done.

Tents at the ready, I, and a flood of worldwide lesbians/bisexuals/transgender women flooded through the gates of Uttoxeter Racecourse, UK for a weekend of live music, literary workshops and slap-your-thigh comedy, and we were NOT disappointed!

Orla Vaughan is the woman in the thick of it all What can I say about Marcus White, the man behind the newly planned Outing in Lisdoonvarna? He’s a ball of energy, not just any old energy but that most sought after holy grail of energy, positive energy. This is not news to me [...]
Summer is here (theoretically) and the (theoretically) improved weather means I’m much more likely to make it to interesting exhibitions than I am during the winter months. There are a couple of excellent exhibitions on at the moment that no one will a soul should miss.
