Sitges

“..Sitges during Gay Pride … You are in charge of your own body..”

“About a year ago I was on holiday in Sitges during Gay Pride. I met a nice man and we had chemistry between us. We went out dancing and drinking, etc. Finally, we went to his hotel room and we had sex. It was not all the way, but we kissed and had oral sex, but I didn’t want to continue. . .

XY Chelsea

Filmrecensie: XY Chelsea (2019); IDFA Queer day (Nederlands).

Beoordeling: ✯✯✯✯ – 4/5. XY Chelsea (2019) heeft mij geboeid van het begin tot het einde. Het verhaallijn heeft een erg mooie opbouw. Hawkins zorgt ervoor dat iedereen die de situatie van Chelsea Manning niet kent aan het einde goed geïnformeerd is. Naar mijn mening vind ik het belangrijk om te zien hoe een heel land verdeeld kan raken door slechts één persoon. Is zij een heroïne of een verrader?

Boyfriend

“..You can’t escape old age, but I appreciate the support of my boyfriend..”

“Our age difference is 40 years and we’ve been together for 15 years and married for 10 years. When we first met I was a little bothered with the age difference. But I liked him a lot and then I thought to myself. . .

BeyonG

BeyonG: “..Because there’s nothing better than being yourself..”

“I am BeyonG, I’m 32 years old and I’m a transwoman of color. There is nothing better in this world than to accept yourself for who you are. It has been quite a journey for me to discover myself and in fact. . .
