My 2 Pence: Pose

A new show hit the FX channel in the States earlier this year called Pose. Created by Ryan Murphy in collaboration with trans writer Janet Mock, the series took inspiration from 80s cult classic documentary Paris is Burning, a spot light on the New York ball room scene and the sense of community that had been created by LGBT outcasts of mainstream society.

What really came through, was how the casting of Trans actors of colour like MJ Rodriguez and Indya Moore and thoughtful character development gave a platform for authentic trans stories - exploring fresh themes from a unique perspective.

Prior to watching the show, I had a non existent point of reference for the trans experience and by the end of the 8 part season, my mind was opened to the real struggles of a marginalised people.

Check the trailer out below:

Pose is available on Itunes and Amazon Video.

The US Adventures: Atlanta Pt 1

I'm not gonna lie. I have a weakness for Americans.

I love the confidence, the chat, the looks and the chemistry. So much so that I decided to go to the belly of the beast for my 1st trip there. Atlanta.

Checking In

Hey guys, hope everyone is good.

I've been gone waay too long. Part of it has been writer's block, part of it has been selling my soul to the corporate world to allow me to have the means and access to experiences that inspire my posts and part of it has just been living life.

Fortunately, the thankless hard work over the years has meant that I have able to reclaim my time for a while. I am unplugging from the matrix and refocusing on giving you guys regular content because I know that the neglect has been real.

Long story short. I'm back!
