Where Else Can You See Me Work My Thang?
Places where I wrote stuff
At one point I managed to trick the people over at Vice to publish something.
I worked for many years at 69 Degrees where I wore many hats Music Editor, Culture Editor, New Media Development Manager and for an extremely short time men's lifestyle blogger. You used to be able to read my stuff there until it was all deleted in a recent re-brand but now you can just take my word for it, it was the shit.
If you want to read the things I actually got printed on real life paper you can see the archive here, my issues are 25/02/08 - Spring 2010:
EQ View, where what I wrote was both a mystery to myself and the editor.
I've also written for swathes of websites and blogs that no longer exist including SoSoGay, Vada, M Magazine, Mash My Pixel, Who's Jack, Bent and my very own baby Your Face Is An Advert. R.I.P.

So this week it’s tricky to be funny. Neighbours was amazing. I’m really sorry. I’m going to use too many clichés. I’m going to praise the acting and possibly a set or two. Neighbours would have made my life easier … Continue reading
Welcome back for the second recap of Neighbours 2017 and I’m already wondering why I’m bothering. Carl and Susan were nowhere to be seen. There’s no better way to say it, this was a shit week of Neighbours. Shit. Just. … Continue reading
I want to support people like me, people who when asked what their favourite TV show is, they say with pride and joy: “I love Neighbours” To which the response is always a furrowed brow and “Is that still on … Continue reading

We do a lot, some ….. an amount, around gay men and sexual health awareness, sometimes I can’t help but think we’re dealing with a symptom rather than the cause. I want to see more done to make gay men … Continue reading
Tracey Cox wrote a wonderfully condescending article for the Mail Online, so I responded with this article on Vice: http://www.vice.com/read/7-actual-things-straight-people-can-learn-from-gay-relationships-421?utm_source=vicetwitterus
I interviewed Margaret Thatcher, well a man that dresses as her which is pretty much the same right? http://eqview.com/2015/03/12/maggie-thatcher-interview/ I also saw Bathhouse The Musical. It wasn’t 100% terrible (a massive amount of alcohol increased enjoyment ten fold.) http://sosogay.co.uk/2015/review-bathhouse-musical-stag-theatre/
