Write what you know

So what shall I write about? Well, there are a lot of things I feel really passionate about.

George Michael
I'm a big George Michael fan. In fact, it's fair to say that I'm completely mad about him. In a nice way I hasten to add; I'm not a stalker or anything. I just happen to think George Michael is an amazingly talented singer-song writer with loads of charisma. And he's not bad looking either!

This is not a dedicated GM fan blog, but I find the phenomenon that is George Michael endlessly fascinating and I'll probably blog a lot about him

This Autumn, George Michael will go on tour with his Symphonica Tour and I will post reviews of all the concerts I go to. I'll also post reviews from his last tour, the wonderful 25 Live Tour.

Gay Rights
As a gay woman I'm very passionate about gay rights. It's a disgrace that there's still so much homophobia in the (western) world. Over the past three years I've done my bit to make things a bit better. I've joined our national GLBT organisation, COC, and am a member of a group that aims  to educate teenagers about gay rights. We go to schools (only if we're invited of course) and tell a class full of kids the story of our own coming out, and then we lead a group discussion about homosexuality. It's an uphill struggle but I think it's important to keep the dialogue going. And kids need to see with their own eyes that gay people are normal people, just like them.

Delightful things
Everyone has stuff that makes them feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The things that put a smile on your face just thinking about them. Your wedding day, the day your children were born, that sort of thing. Those are the big things, but there's also lots of small things that can make you smile, even on tough days. I'm going to write about my little things of pure delight, to remind myself of the nice things life has to offer.

Guilty Pleasures
Self-explanatory really. You know those things you're not supposed to like, but you just can't help yourself? I decided to confess a few of my sins, it's supposed to be good for the soul!

Favourite books
I love reading books. It's one of the safest (look Ma, no drugs!) and cheapest ways to transport yourself to another world. Occasionally I'll blog about a book I liked a lot. Some of them might be well-known and popular, some might be a bit more obscure
