Burger Queen (finally)

Here is a small selection of my photos from Burger Queen! Bethany was a finalist so I toddled down with my camera and red lipstick. The only way I can describe Burger Queen is the safest (and most fabulous) place on earth. No matter what you look like, what you wear, who you fancy, what you identify as – there’s no wrong answer at Burger Queen. Everyone is great and everyone is welcome. It takes some of the key tenets of feminism and queer theory and presents them to you in a way that makes you laugh, feel good and perhaps shed a tear. As a lifelong fat girl, I thank Burger Queen for making me feel unreservedly great about myself for an evening, tucked away from the bullshit in a room full of fantastic people.



I’m in heaven when you smile

Occasionally I share music on here, and today is one of those occasions. I’m a well-documented fan of Van Morrison and this song always, always sends me on my way in a good mood. I’m moving house today (hence the lack of updates), so I needed spurring on. It’s doing the trick.

I’ve got a small build-up of photos to post. Back to business as usual once The Most Stressful Week Ever is finally over.



Sweet sweet girlfriend

I have been lucky enough over the past year or two to form new friendships and rekindle some old ones. The way I relate to women has changed dramatically because I’m no longer in such unrealistic situations with them – we don’t see each other every day, we don’t compete against each other in an intensive private school environment, and we don’t cling to each other in the panic of first leaving home. It feels much more like I’m able to appreciate the women in my life for what they are and what they do. We had a girls’ dinner in my flat last night and it was brilliant. We sat out in the garden for hours giggling away over copious amounts of food and red wine and pondering life, love and the universe. It was new for me, but I liked it.
