That’s what friends are for!

Me & DanielFourteen years ago, I met one of my closest group of friends at university.

This past week, one of them has been there for me when all seemed lost – my career, home and relationship – because, of discrimination within the police.

Despite my difficulties in the workplace due to my race and sexuality, I’m one of the lucky ones because I have people like Dan who care about me.

I encourage others, to keep good friends close and value them. And, when things don’t go right – go left.

The picture of us at my first gay club in Manchester, shows that we haven’t aged a bit in over a decade – well. Dan knows, he ‘really’ is… something else-a! โ˜บ x
