My Favourite Queer Musicians

18

It seems trite to say that I’m a big fan of music, but I’m going to go ahead and say that I am a big fan of music 😛 I’m well versed in music theory, music making, I can play over five instruments, and I have music-listening-to down to a science!

It wasn’t until I was going through my most played playlists that I realised just how much I actively listen to queer music. I’m incredibly happy at the fact that I give almost as much time to my queer singers as my favourite hetero ones.

The below are just some of my favourite queer singers who are out there representing. I hope you enjoy the list and give some of these musicians a listen 🙂 Continue reading “My Favourite Queer Musicians”

Blurb: Famous bounty hunter Talisha Artul is not having a good day. A hostile alien planet full of bandits and refugees, an entire group of mercenaries all told to kill her and take her armor, and it’s barely even noon. All she wanted was to earn a paycheck and make her mother proud. They’ve barely shared a kind word since she came out of the closet as trans and took her mother’s name.

Now she’s travelling with an android cowboy with split-personality issues and an eight-foot-tall warrior woman to beat a group of vengeful pirates and the galactic federation’s military forces to uncover an ancient alien temple. Talisha soon learns that despite her legal standing, there is little that separates her from these marginalized cutthroats and outcasts. They’re all victims here, all pawns in their shadowy employer’s game.

Pride Month!

18

Hey everybody, it’s June!

Those of you in the know, will know that it is Pride Month! And those of you who didn’t know, now know 😀

Every year in June the history, politics, culture, and people of the LGBTI community are celebrated. Marking the occasion of the Stonewall riots, the month long celebration is one that looks to empower and educate people, to embolden those to feel pride in themselves and their sexuality.

Gay Pride GIF by Bustle-downsized_large(1)To mark this month long occasion, I will be focusing my posts on LGBTI popular culture. Keep an eye out for posts about how I feel about the term LGBTI, what I’m currently interacting with, what I’m looking forward to, some of my queer favourites and other general recommendations.

So no matter who you are, I hope you enjoy your Pride Month and have a lovely June!

Comfort Zone Challenge: Red Wine

 

Comfort Zone Challenge - Music and wine

I’m going to start off by saying that I like wine. I like wine. However, I like my wine sweet and white. I tend to favour Moscato or sweet sparkling wines. Do not give me any of these bitter, dry, or crisp wines. Sweet and bubbly all the way.

Which is why, I thought I would try something different, something I turn my nose up at, but admittedly not continued to taste: Red wine.

Small Snippet of May 2018

Small Snippet

What with my busy schedule of poetry themed posts, I decided to skip my Small Snippet post for April. I feel that you guys weren’t denied anything as I almost tripled the amount of normal posts I do a month. Just in case you were going through withdrawals, here is a small snippet of some of the things I have been interacting with in May. Continue reading “Small Snippet of May 2018”

Happy Tabletop Day!

itttd_2018_logo-300x300It’s the 28th of April – which means:

IT’S TABLETOP DAY!

For those of you who don’t know, the internationally celebrated day is a chance for people to come together and celebrate, share, and play tabletop games.

What are tabletop games I hear you ask? Well tabletop games are anything which can be played on a table 😛 This includes board games, card games, role playing games (such as Dungeons and Dragons), dice games, and many more!

If the only tabletop games you can think of are Monopoly and poker, then please do yourself a favour and research some new games. I am saying this, not only because there are some amazing games out there but because Monopoly is the literal worse 😉

Comfort Zone Challenge: Audio Book

Comfort Zone Challenge - music

I am going to start off my saying that I have kind of cheated in the first month of my Comfort Zone Blogger Challenge. For my music selection I decided that I was going to go outside my comfort zone and try an audio-book – emphasis on the audio 😛 . As opposed to a theme or topic, I decided to mix it up (on my first month 😛 ) and mess with the media format. Continue reading “Comfort Zone Challenge: Audio Book”
