LGBTQ education is vital for school kids.

Should LGBT and gender identity be more mainstream in school lessons? Well, that's a big flaming hot yes from me. I attended mainstream school between the years of 2002-7. Not once during PSHE lessons was there ever any mention made of the LGBTQ community or gender identity. School is one place that you expect to…

The fight isn’t over!!!

Recently I read two news articles about a Tory councillor for Wiltshire in the south of England which re-cements my already bulging dislike for the Tories.

My fashion journey to LGBT acceptance
