LGBTQ+ Community Bee in Sackville Street Gardens, Manchester

I the background is the statue of Alan Turin one of the silent heros of code breaking in World War 2 and a personal hero of mine. I often go and sit on the bench and stare at the bee along side Mr Turin


All you do is play!

Some people have commented to me in the past couple of days that all I do is play, all I do is go in to Manchester and get drunk.

Well unless you know the backstory to my life then firstly “fuck you” and secondly “it’s none of your business, so fuck you”. Thirdly you only see a small part of my life or what I choose to let you see, so again “fuck you”

I don’t have to justify myself here as to why I just disappear and go somewhere to be around other people and yes I do consume alcohol but I don’t get wasted.

At the moment I have family issues which are really stressful so, I go away, to get away from these problems.

I refuse to go into specifics but let’s just say the issues that I’ve got are beyond my control but at the same time I am being forced to deal with them. This is causing me mental anguish and also physical heartache as I am forced to relive events in my past over and over again.

So, yes, I do just fuck off to Manchester or Leeds or Wherever else but this is because I need to be around other people other than my family and be around people who are non-judgemental and go somewhere I can just be myself.

Street art and architecture in the Northern quarter, Manchester

Its the 19th of September I’m in Manchester for the day. and I’ve done something today which I wanted to do for awhile which is walk around and photographs of the street art and architecture in the Northern quarter, Manchester.

Here’s some of my pictures from today. I hope you like them?

Thank you everyone. Your love is amazing!

On the 8th of September 2020 I told all my friends, old and new, via the medium of Facebook and Youtube, that I was transgender, and I was absolutely overwhelmed by the wonderful comments and messages I have received since.

I just want to say, from the bottom of my heart, thank you everybody.

To all those who left me a comment, sent me a messenger message, text message or called me. Thank You <3

All your love and comments have overwhelmed me. All the beautiful things that have been said to me in the past 24-hours have really made me cry with happiness.

I outed myself for no other reason than I have tried to tell as many people as possible in person but I didn’t want anybody else to have to comprehend the reaction that I got from one of my old friends earlier in the week.

I bumped into him in Macclesfield earlier in the week and I could see the look of confusion, apprehension, and shock. We talked later that day and he said he was confused because he didn’t know “I dressed up”, Apprehension because he didn’t know what to say to me and shock because I looked so good and he did have to look twice because he wasn’t sure it was me.

Rather than have my friends face the awkwardness of meeting me as Mikki for the first time, I realised it was better if I just told everybody all-in one go. I would have preferred to have spoken to everybody privately but using Facebook and YouTube was the easiest way as I can’t travel around as much with this curse that is Covid! Stupid Covid!

Again, thank you. I am genuinely overwhelmed by all the comments and support that everybody has given me. The messages in Facebook and via private messenger have really been fantastic.

This has been a massive step in my life and one I haven’t taken lightly especially after years of mental anguish, depression and psychotherapy. I know some of you already thought I was mental having known me for many years but this for me is a step in the right direction and I hope you understand better after watching the little video I made or if you’ve read my Frequently Asked Questions?

Some of you have been with me on this journey so far, so you know what i’ve been going through over the past 12-months.

This is not a whim, or a fancy and you also know what issues I’ve had mentally since I had my diagnosis. Even once I’ve had a diagnosis and just actually how hard its been to deal with/comprehending and then coming to terms with this diagnosis and knowing this is who I really am.

When I went to therapy at first, I was told things would get worse before they got better. Well, I think that things did get worse, but they have definitely got so much better and I’m happier now than I have been for a most of my life.

Love you all

Sadly my financial situation is not compatible with the list of things i’d like to buy so here a list of beautiful shoes I’d like to buy and here they will stay until I can afford them or perhaps someone takes pity on me and buys them for me.
