Queer Musings

February 22, 2009

Me and that guy were talking the other day about queer people on TV. I was explaining to him how falsely constructed the super-camp gay male presenter stereotype was and we hit on something: where are all the lesbians? Not just TV presenters – anywhere on UK television? 

We even spent some time googling to see if anyone we recognised came up. The winner: Sue Perkins.

Hi blog.

I’ve been gone for a while now, and I’ve had time to think. I miss you but…

We have to draw a line under the past. There are some things that you are going to have to let go of. You put the pressure on and look what happened: I bolted.

You have to remember that I control you. This is not about you. You have to stop showing off and trying to grab attention. Sometimes I feel like you’re ignoring me and that’s just not right.

But I’m here again now. And I’m prepared to give it another go if you are. But let’s take it slow, ok?
