I’ve learned that eyebrow maintenance is akin to godliness. Groom your fucking eyebrows, but don’t fight the shape too much. At the start of the year I only had one eyebrow, but now I take great pride in photographing these twins.
Whenever anything nice happens to me I always expect something appalling to happen immediately afterwards. This is the same for my mood. If I am in a good mood, a confident mood, or whatever, then I am simply waiting on that changing to something gloomier. One of the triggers for this sudden bitch-storm downpour is … Continue reading Learning to Love Myself.
New friends, old friends. Good friends, bad friends. Straight friends, drunk friends, unreliable friends. Gay friends. Having a group of friends you can depend on and spend time with is important. And having gay friends as allies rather than enemies has been pivotal in my development as a person. The trouble is, it’s not always … Continue reading Making Gay Friends
It’s the weekend and I am stuck in hell. Hell, to me anyway, is a crowded bar or club. I can’t see past my hand and I’m bathed in a very unflattering neon-light.

It happens and there I am, replaying that Snap, looking at … Continue reading Tiny Beds.
