A Love Of Reading

I have loved reading since age 8. I never liked it before then, but when I was young I was a member of the Brownies. I went to a Brownie camp and we were required to take a book with us to read before bed. Before attending the camp, I had maybe read 9 pages of the first Harry Potter book. By the time I left, I was maybe 9 pages from the end.

Thus, started my love of reading, and that has stayed with me for my life, having read hundreds of books now at age 23.

There Are More – TDoR 2017

This week is Trans Awareness Week. If you follow my blog at all, you’ll already know that I am trans and non-binary, if not… You do now! 

I am very privileged in that I have the platform to speak to others about gender, I have this blog, I know a lot of people, I have a lot of friends on Facebook, I can promote this stuff. 

Not everyone is so lucky.

Farewell Finn

cn: suicide, death, nhs cuts, chronic illness

Finnian John Lytle was an amazing person. That’s not just me saying that because he’s passed away and I want to put him on a pedastool, he was genuinely lovely. I honestly don’t know anyone who hated Finn, he was someone you just couldn’t help but love. 

Unfortunately, he had a lot going on in his life and, on the 18th May 2017, Finn committed suicide.

I wrote this post a little while ago, but haven’t been able to post it until now, 4 months to the day.

There’s No Such Thing As Too Much Love

I love all three of my partners. I love Tyler, Panda and Kasey. They are all a part of my life and I feel wonderful being openly and honestly involved with all of them.

But I know a common retort is “How can you love more than one person? How is that even possible?” Today I want to explain how I experience love, and how I can possibly feel love for more than one.

Kai & Other Popular Names

My name is annoyingly common now. It wasn’t when I first came out, but now it really is.

I have been going by the name Kai since I was about 16, on and off. That is now nearly seven years. In that time, it has become much more popular and I know a lot of people called Kai now.
