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”

L = Lesbian.
G = Gay.
B = Bisexual.
T = Transgender.

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.
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!
It’s been almost two months since last updating so I have a few more books to cross off the bingo card. Over all this batch of books has been a bit all over the place, I’ve had books I loved, books I hated but mainly the books are ones that I would not have normally read except for the bingo card.
A Forgotten Classic
Miss Lonelyhearts by Nathanael West
To say that this book was unpleasant would be an understatement. It is not that the book is bad, it is more that the book is very depressing, it is from a depressing era (the actual Depression) and is quite upfront with the tragedies that have befallen the people who write into Miss Lonelyheart. The book was quite unsettling and upsetting, after having put it down I have every intention of repressing my memories, here is hoping I can make Miss Lonelyhearts a true forgotten classic.
