I have contemplated starting a blog for some time, but, for whatever reason, the timing has never been right. Well, right now there is no reason why I shouldn’t try to put down in words my thoughts on a wide range of topics which are important to me. As the title of the blog suggests, I am planning to cover a wide range of different issues, although I will be concentrating on those things which are closest to my heart – lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex equality, and the separation of church and state (which are, in many ways, inextricably linked). The purpose isn’t necessarily in seeking to be widely read, but for those people who do happen to stumble across these reflections I hope they do make you think (or even start a conversation if you wish to comment). Anyway, who knows where it might eventually end up, but that’s my intention at the beginning.
