Monday 7th November 2022: Autistic and… In Therapy?

Hello everybody, Yup, this blog was supposed to be published in September. Then in October, twice. It wasn’t. I was exhausted last weekend, the week before also, after doing a speaking event and the week before was also bit of a mess. For the first one this November, I’m going to go for one a...

Monday 10th October 2022: Backlash and Resistance

Hello friends. Yes, I know, it’s been a while. I had an absolutely wonderful holiday and spent the next few weeks making sure I’d hit the ground running with work. Of course, my work being what it is, I am relying on outside forces to be able to get things done. What’s been difficult to...

Monday 29th August 2022: Edinburgh and Beyond

Hi everybody! Yes, it’s been so very long. But it was with good reason. I needed the time to recuperate since I was also working full-time. The work was fun, the students were great, the person I worked with directly was a total hero. However, it was everything else that drained me. Instead of calling...

Announcement: Feeling Fast and Slow

Hi everyone, Ok, so this blog came a little bit faster than I anticipated. I have big news to share. I have just signed my contract for a non-fiction book with Jessica Kingsley Publisher’s, hopefully in bookshops and online retailers for late Spring/early Summer 2024. It’s called Feeling Fast and Slow, or, at least, that’s...

Monday 11th July 2022: New Things (I’ve got the word N*E*W*S blocked, but I think this’ll work)

Hi everyone! Yes I’ve been away for a few weeks. I’m just posting this one, because at least there’s some gay stuff in it. Then I will possibly post every other week, if I even have the time. I’m working full-time teaching English for Academic Purposes at Heriot-Watt university. I hope to do some work...

Monday 20th June 2022: Pride Season! New! Flash! Written While Tired.

Hi everyone, Hope you’re doing ok. I was trying not to write this blog as I’m a bit exhausted, but I couldn’t not. My brain wouldn’t allow me to switch off otherwise. It’s going to be a bit shorter than usual, for that reason. So today, I’m going to give the latest news! Bad Gays...

Monday 13th June 2022: Pride Season! Autistic in Queer Spaces

Hi everyone! Happy Pride once again! I hope you’re well! I had a lot of fun last Monday talking to Edinburgh University Press. However, the event at Bristol SU didn’t happen due to the organiser catching Covid – no problem at all. There’ll be others. I didn’t lose the chance to have lunch with my...

Monday 6th June 2022: Pride Season #2 – Happy Pride! How is it Going with Conversion Therapy (TLDR: FML)

Hi everyone! Happy Pride! My mum sent us this beautiful card the other day. Thanks to her and to the amazing Alice Oseman for their work on Heartstopper which I will watch/read one day, I promise. This year’s Pride Season kicks off with a catch-up on one of the most important blogs I wrote last...

Monday 16th May 2022: Call-out, Conversion Therapy and Videos

Hi everyone, Unfortunately, I’ve been too busy and tired these past two weeks to commit to my blog. Yesterday, I completely crashed. I was going to write about autism and learning disabilities but to do that justice, I need more time. I go on about resting so much, I might as well follow my own...
