Hello beautiful people,
It feels like ages since I have checked in with you. So much has been happening; I’m not sure where to begin.
Perhaps I’ll start with a follow on from my last post.
I’m happy to report to you that the link in my last post – Joel Burns tells gay teens ‘it gets better’ has had over two million views. Woo hoo! This means public awareness and support is growing each and every day. By stamping out homophobic bullying, surely it will help reduce the number of suicides taking place that are sexuality related. It may only be one small step right here, right now – at least it is a step in the right direction. Then comes another step, and another step, and another one and before we know it we will be living in a world of equality and unconditional love. Now that deserves a big WOO HOO!
It’s good to see too, since the awareness for the GLBTIQ community has been raised even higher, (and an upcoming state election doesn’t hurt either), that our governments are taking their own small step in the right direction too. Check out this article in the Age newspaper http://www.theage.com.au for more information.
The one thing I do find rather confusing though: if we really want to stamp out homophobic bullying once and for all, then allowing same sex marriage, would surely have to be a great starting point. Nothing says ‘it gets better’ better than ‘its okay to be who you are’! Wouldn’t you agree? It really does my head in that on the one hand we are telling our youth ‘it gets better’, then on the other hand, once they become adults, saying ‘no you can’t get married as we don’t recognise same sex marriages’. What the!
How fortunate I am that my husband’s sexual expression is bisexual and we could get married. I can’t imagine what it must be like to not be allowed to marry the one you love, especially as consenting adults living in the twenty-first century. I really don’t get it! It’s time for change people. To those countries that already allow same-sex marriages – thank you.
The other news I have for you, drum roll please, is that ‘Sexual Biversity – a real wife experience for a real life situation’ the book, is almost ready for print. It has been fully edited and is at this moment being proof read before it is good to go. How’s that for brilliant! Not long now.
And for some other news, you may have already seen I now have a Facebook button on the site for the newly created Sexual Biversity Facebook Page. So if you’re on Facebook click the button then when you land on the Sexual Biversity Facebook Page click the like button to like the Page! I would really appreciate your support on Facebook and please feel free to pass it on to others to ‘like’ as well.
One last piece of news before signing off! Andrew and I did the filming last week for the documentary I was telling you about in an earlier post. I must admit to thoroughly enjoying myself, perhaps a little too much! It was great fun being doted over with hair and make-up etc. let alone the opportunity to make a difference by utilising another form of media to spread the word. At this stage it won’t be airing until early 2011, though I’ll keep you posted.
Well that’s it for today. Enjoy your life for your life enjoys you!
Love & hugs,
