Panti’s Noble’s Gay Rights Speach

So True. This really caught me. In particular, the part ”I was standing at a crossing, and someone shouted out ”FAG.” Now at that point, It didn’t bother me too much, I mean I am a fag right? But what does bother me is when I question myself afterwards ”What made them realise I was gay? What do I need to do differently?” I HATE THAT. So next time I stand at the crossing, I’m questioning myself. That’s oppressive.”

A UK VISA!

CasesHey Guys!

As promised I have started to update the page ”A UK VISA” with our story on how we came to live and work in the UK.

This will detail not only our own experience, but also provide you with some useful information, guidance, and resources on how you too can settle here!

I hope you continue to find this blog informative, and please also share your thoughts, comments and questions at the bottom of the relevant page!

2014 Update

Firstly – Happy New Year to all my visitors! It’s great to see that this blog still gets a lot of interest and has been able to help some people. I was excited to see its had over 10,000 hits since launching it!

I know that I haven’t been around for a while, so I thought I would share a little update.

Paulo and I have been together now for 4 years now, and in the UK for 2. He acquired his UK Visa in June 2012, so we are now looking to apply for our renewal which we give him ‘Indefinite leave to remain.’

After first moving to the UK we lived in Braintree for 1 1/2 years, which although being a small city, we loved! Since July of last year we have been living near Watford, London. We moved this way due to my new job (Which I’ve since left,) and are enjoying being closer to London!

The plan is to update this blog with information of our UK visa application soon. We are visiting Brasil soon which I’m excited about too!

All the best for 2014

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,600 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 43 trips to carry that many people.
