Really learning a lot at the NASUWT LGBTICC #lgbticc21 It makes me realise how far we have come, but also how far we have to go too. Particularly with respect to Intersex and Transgender rights. In order to do that, we need to challenge ALL inequality as any division divides us all.
Really looking forward to this!
Next Thursday and Friday is the TUC LGBT+ conference. l was recently elected on to the National LGBT Advisory Panel for my Trade Union and will not only be attending, I will be speaking! Indeed, I will be, “Demanding progressive change to the Gender Recognition Act!”

While I was waiting I went to watch the Scottish Parliament sitting. Way more efficient than Westminster. The electronic voting system meant that theyContinue reading “LGBT Youth Scotland”
This is the first blog in which I have managed to write more than a few posts. I love the idea of a blog in the same way that I loved the idea of writing a diary when I was a teenager. My room was littered with notebooks with, at most, two entries and IContinue reading “The Ether”
During the last six years I have become increasingly aware of how important the teenage and pre-teen years are. This is when boys and girls experiment with looks, ethics, beliefs, attitude and many other things. For most this is an experience that will set them on a path for life, helping to shape career, orientation,Continue reading “Teenage Revisited”
Good first her. Stand up to the Press by coming out to the world before they can print their tawdry story. This is the sort of politician we want. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jan/02/lib-dem-mp-layla-moran-announces-same-sex-relationship?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_WordPress
