Morning Gorgeous xx
I’m going to keep this one short – really short. But it has to go up as it follows into the next quite accurately; so here goes…
Well, they say today is the first day of the rest of your life. Well I actually realised ow true that is this morning and, yet again, I’m in a very reflective mood – with an awful lot going around in my head.
I went to see a play last night, don’t go to the theatre very often (I should). The storyline revolved around a man, a boxer, who was Gay. And it was about him coming to terms with that fact and essentially “coming out” to the world.. It’s a damn good play, written by a guy called Rob Ward. It was written in response to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia and has been nominated for a number of awards – it deserves them.
It strikes a chord with me as the whole play is written from the point of view of freedom of expression (a lot of ‘of’s’ in there, lol). And I think it strikes a chord with anybody whose ever had difficulty expressing themselves. In my case it struck the chords of LGBT+ as I am Trans, as you know. But it my case it also struck the chord of the difficulties that people face when trying to express themselves; not just as LGBTQ. See, I’m Autistic as well, which creates further difficulties as I don’t see the world the same way other people do – and that adds an extra barrier on the road to being able to express yourself freely. That barrier has caused me a lot of pain and ultimately resulted in the post that I’ll put up next.
Go see the play, if you can or at least read up on it – in my case, it’s life changing.
