Musings of a Not Very Cool Gay...

It’s time I came out… Not as gay, I’ll have been out and proud for ten years in October (I’m throwing myself a party!) No, I’m coming out as a NVCG…
I prefer pubbing, to clubbing and I can’t stand pretention, Thank God for Manchester Pride, It’s good for relieving my tension, I haven’t had that many “encounters” at Manchester Pride, If I’ve ever said that it’s more than a few, well I’m sorry but I lied,
You’ll find me at Climax looking mildly out of place, because I haven’t got the right hair, and certainly not the right face. My haunt is actually the Women’s Stage with Heather Peace and Horse, I like to watch the drag kings and Clare Mooney of course.
I find I’m surrounded by couples, often young and very cool, but I’m a bit of a geek and I can’t even play pool.   But Manchester Pride is welcoming of cool and geek alike, whether you drive a BMW or ride a Chopper Bike.

1 Minute 37 Seconds...

It's been a while since I blogged, but yesterday and over the past couple of weeks I've been preparing for Comic Relief and Red Nose Day. This morning as I watched some Comic Relief comedy (I missed it all last night as I was in a call centre taking donations), I saw this video. You may have already seen it, but I ask you to look again - it's only 1 Minute 37 Seconds long, and hopefully it will inspire you to do something AMAZING... Text YES to 70010. Just one simple text, costing £10.00, all of which goes to Comic Relief and your network charges will mean that women like Selinah who you see in the video can lead a normal life with AIDS.
I hope that you can take 1 Minute 37 Seconds out of your day, and £10.00 out of your pocket (the equivalent of 33 pence every day for a month) to help people in Africa whose lives have been decimated by AIDS.
God Bless
