They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.
When you go home tell them of us and say - For your tomorrow we gave our today
I posted this last year for Remembrance Day, I post very little now a but Remembrance Day is something that most defiantly deserves a post.

So this is my final note on Jack. For a long while we grew close. Which was great, he made me smile and laugh and feel great. Then I told him I was gay last night. He was really nice about it. Apologised for every time he had jokingly called me gay and such. Then I asked if he was gay. And he told me he was straight and said this: “I really hope you werent hoping for something else Connor, I would hate for it to be awkward between us”. Of course what I should have said here was “haha you, no I was just wondering for a bet,” or something along those lines. But no, I fucked it up. He went quiet and I now I know it’s going to be awkward Monday…well this is my gay life. At least now I can move on.
THIS IS WHAT A WORLD LEADER LOOKS LIKE.
DESMOND TUTU, I OFFICIALLY LOVE YOU.
"I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven. No, I would say sorry, I mean I would much rather go to the other place," Archbishop Tutu said at the launch of the Free and Equal campaign in Cape Town.
"I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this."
Archbishop Tutu said the campaign against homophobia was similar to the campaign waged against racism in South Africa.
"I am as passionate about this campaign as I ever was about apartheid. For me, it is at the same level," he added.

oh my fucking wow. I just love how he calls attention to the hypocrisy.
And stood up to it.
I’ve always loved him (mainly due to his name) but this has made me love him even more!!!
Still a great ad… still more to do… live, love, be!

So, this is probably going to be one of my last posts. About half an hour ago I came out to my dad, he’s the person who I have been most scared to tell. It has been a long journey to get here and i was stood in the kitchen a while to pluck up the balls to tell him, but I did!! Tumblr has done many things for me, it gave me a place to release steam and sexuality where previously I was not able to do it in the real world. It showed me that there really are people out there who are like me and I was able to connect with some of them through tumblr. It allowed me to be myself in a world I was hiding from. Finally it gave me support when I needed it through my followers and through great blogs. I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been thinking about what to do. Now that I’ve came out I don’t need to hide any more. Tumblr was where I came to hide. What that means I don’t know. The next time I post will be on the one year anniversary that I made this blog. I will post what I want to do with the blog and also I will include a story, it is a real experience of mine!!
So finally thank you to all you random blogs and all you hopeless romantics, thank you gay/bi/trans/straight people who have just been so kind and of course thank you to my many AMAZING followers!!!

I’ve seen this picture being passed around a lot with the Queen today signing the marriage equality bill. It’s a momentous day and I hope it’s something that other countries will follow (yes we are not the first but still…). I do support gay marriage, I know many straight and even gay people don’t but personally I hope that someday I will marry the man of my dreams….someday
People say Gaga and all these other stars are the true gay icon but Lily Allen wrote a song dedicated to saying “Fuck You” to homophobes.

When my phone vibrates I get excited thinking its him…then I realise it’s spam mail…
Some of you longer followers might remember this image. I posted it the day my great grandad died. Unfortunately this afternoon I heard the sad news that my other great grandad has died. Once again I ask for your patience and understanding as I take a short break from the blogging world and my posting becomes erratic (and probably more depressing ;) ). Thank you.
So I went to a sort of meal out party thing last. Only six of us for a good friend I met a while back. I knew 4 of the people and then there was another one. One of the ones I did know was Max. I wish it was more obvious if people were gay, big signs above their heads will do. I think I was lightly flirting and he was back. But I’m not sure, I’m so useless with these things :( are well I started a conversation elsewhere and he responded so let’s see where this goes ;) *fingers crossed*
