Not sure this even counts as a year abroad post, because a lot of it is about how I WENT HOME!! Initially I was just going to Durham to visit my girlfriend (though I do refer to that city as home more often than I call Cumbria home at this point), but unfortunately I had… Continue reading Paris?

The LGBT+ community has always been heavily centred around the idea of labels and identities.
