Time flies. Listening to BBC Radio 4 Extra, where a show from the 1970s makes inflation jokes that are very relevant.

My birthday came and went, my niece decided to copy what they do at her school when they celebrate birthdays by counting up from one. Which is quite charming for at ten year old but gets a bit long when she goes, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen.... and feels insulting by the late twenties.

Pride month is ending with dark threats to LGBTQ rights and dehumanising blanket trans sporting bans. Just putting a rainbow on a social profile feels rather pointless.


  1. Happy birthday 🌟

    On the upside to having your years counted, at least they didn't give up half way through 😉

  2. Happy belated birthday.
    Pride isn't quite so exuberant this year as we tackle so much hate. Shows just why we need it. Sue x

  3. First Contact is an accessible metaverse for queer and questioning folks to connect with each other in a safe space and acquire a personal and professional queer network to rely on in all stages of life.
