So, I got to the Forum and an hour later went downstairs to the curve before “Beyond a fringe issue: Why everyone should care about trans rights”

As you can see, nobody was there at the start. It took a few minutes for the prsenters to show up. And they did. They are CN Lester (Trans activist and musician).

Then, after that at about 12pm, was “Question Time Debate” (minus shouting over each other). Some quite good questions and answers came out of it. (None of which I can’t remember right now. :/ )

Afterwards, I got talkong with CN Lester about various things and me and Hannah (My gorgeous friend) agreed for me to show CN the way to the Chapelfield Gardens, where they were going to perform some songs later on. And more pics, with me and CN making silly faces. 🙂

So got to the Chapelfield Gardens where CN Lester was going to perform as well as Voter Kernal (My beautiful friends band!). While there, met some new faces and old. And found myself generally chilled out for the rest of the day! 🙂

Me and Hannah! :)

So it was quite a day. I even felt like my ears might’ve popped from all the whistling from the parade that I was trying to avoid. But I enjoyed the whole day and just loved all of it. 🙂

Lost job, can’t get new one. Voice therapy and Prides.

So…. I’ve lost my job about a month ago. No big deal as the manager was an……. well, i just didn’t like the guy one bit, there was something massively ‘off’ about him.

It was zero hours and i was getting less then the Jobseekers Allowance. So, i would have quitted anyway. It was a dead end job with no real opportunities to move on up at all.

And now, i’m having difficulties getting a new job, i can’t even get a volutary position at the Citizens Advice Bureau because i “don’t have enough experience to deal with the preassures”. Which is bullshit because i know what it’s like to be in a preasured environment where i have to work my butt off just to make sure everything is running smothly. All i wanted to do is reception role, which should be fairly straight forward so i don’t know what makes them think i can’t do something that i can do. This is the same for every receptionist job vacancy i’ve ever applied for. I’m absolutly sure i can do that kind of work but am always rejected. This is a major pain in the arse because too many companys/boses wants “experienced” people and not those who might not have it but who could, potentially, be very good at the job, given time.

 

Moving on, i now have a date and time for my first Speach Feminisation Therapy at the main hospital. I have tried a little bit of trying to train my voice on my own but i need some professional help and i am glad that i have managed to get some now.

 

Also coming up later this month is the Suffolk Pride down at Ipswich, Suffolk. I will be going there, i have my train tickets already and it will be my first pride event AND my first ever visit to Ipswich, and i already have in mind what to wear. My purple skirt, my current new shoes, tights and this new top i had recently bought and worn just yesterday (The necklace is new too, bought at a antiques store).

Next month is the Norwich Pride, not sure what i’ll wear to that one just yet though.

 

Lastly, been waiting to hear from All About Trans about any future interactions in Norfolk or Suffolk, sadly, there doesn’t appear to be any yet. I hope there will be as i would like to be more involved with LGBT stuff, especially Trans related things, instead of just engaging the community on twitter and at the trans meetings every month. The point of All About Trans is talking to media representatives from newspapers, local radio, local bloggers etc.and try to have them see that trans people are human beings who, like themselves, are just trying to get by in life,preferably without getting any abuse or ridicule.  And i’m hoping to do this soon. I’m looking forward to it.

 

Well, i think that is everything. I’ll be considering making my next blog post all about….. suffolk pride!

 

Until next time, take care you beautiful people!
