Gay Divorce is Equal Marriage

Today, is five years to the day I got married to a man in Toronto, Canada. Two years ago though, it broke down. I’ve had enough time to come to terms with it and even though my marriage didn’t work out, I’m still a big advocate of marriage equality for all. On mainland Britain in the…

The sensitive subject of Suicide

In Britain today, suicide is the biggest killer of men under the age of 35. And like so many of these men, I too have been vulnerable whilst living with depression. It was a few weeks ago, that I was speaking with some writers when we were asked as a group to describe each other. The…

A disgrace – #FreeRayCole Morocco

I’ve just heard that Ray Cole has been arrested and detained in Morocco for being gay, and it reminded why I don’t visit countries like it and why other gay men shouldn’t. In many countries being gay is not a crime, but in so many it is – even, showing affection towards another of the same-sex in public. Ray has…

Thomas Cook insults Scousers …

I don’t do nepotism, but when my brother sent me a message yesterday about his and other Scouse families treatment by Thomas Cook I knew something was wrong. More so, because he’s a laid-back kind of guy with most things not bothering him – someone, who doesn’t panic or worry unnecessarily. With the school holidays in…

Britain and the European Union …

There’s been much talk of late within the United Kingdom with regards to our relationship with our fellow Europeans, and whether we want to be in or out of Europe. I’m not a betting man, but if there was a vote tomorrow – I think overwhelmingly, the British people would vote to ‘come out’ of…

Labels … Being Mentally Disabled

I’m actually quite passionate about the non-use of labels, believe it or not, as we are all human beings. But, I live in the real world and know that labels can be and are important. Especially when, you are fighting race, sex and/or disability discrimination. In the year 2014, I am a gay man who identifies as…

My HIV Test …

If you’ve ever read my blog before, you will know that NO subject is taboo for me – from racism to homophobia, mental health to physical health like that of cancer to challenging corruption. So with this, I wanted to raise awareness and share my experience of having a HIV Test. Something, I recommend to all who…

Gay Racism!?

The other night, I was ‘browsing’ my social media applications on my mobile telephone when I came across a gay man’s profile which read “not into Asians or drug-takers”. I was like, what the f**k. It then reminded me of my nights out last weekend, with two of my closest gay friends – both white,…
