Reasons to get married, and why civil partnerships are not something heterosexual people should want

I've recently been splitting ownership of a property with an ex, and what I've uncovered is quite shocking... so much so I wanted to share it. I started to look into the matter of marriage vs. civil partnerships and also co-habiting. 

The results, hopefully some useful information of how a marriage or civil partnership can benefit you when it comes to rights and finances around property, pensions and even travel. 

Theatre Review: The White Feminist's Guide to Sex and Hip Hop

I have to be honest, in that I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from this performance.

A one-woman performance from a white woman from Paris, France about Sex and Hip Hop - but I was advised it was absolutely on theme - talking about bisexuality so I cleared my schedule and returned to Theatre N16 for the second night in a row!

Theatre Review: Inside Out (part of Maiden Speech Festival)

I was lucky enough to be contacted by Christina Bloom, the star and creator of Inside Out and invited along to her first performance of her first play. I have to be honest, the bar for LBQ-themed performances in London has been rising steadily for the past 4-5 years (see from recent reviews of Turkey and Bullish from the past fortnight alone), however I didn't set any expectations as I reminded myself that this was Christina's debut.

Girl hair: it’s there; get used to it!

Last week, in line to see a film, half of my mind was in conversation with my friend while the other half sized up a cute, effeminate, young man: dark hair flopping around his deep, brown eyes; thick, post-pubescent fluff on his upper lip; olive skin accented by his black jacket, skirt and tights.

Club T Launch

The Dalston Superstore is an interesting bar to take in, being long and thin with strange sculptures on the walls and hanging from the ceiling. Exposed pipes along the roof give it an almost industrial feel while the silver disco ball in the corner adds a bit of glamour. The dance floor is downstairs only tonight it was off limits. I am here for the brand new and very exciting T Club. Unlike most of the clubs I go to with the proviso of ‘Men as guests’, tonight it was ‘Women as guests’.
