Só de mim - from Ana Luisa @ Starling Film

For every year on the 14th of February, I remember all of those who came into my life, those who left, those who stayed, those who had to take a moment away and then came back. 

How much have I learned with each of you. How much have I lived with all of you. 

Being single doesn’t mean I don’t have a love story. Doesn’t mean I don’t have important people in my life. No matter what, all is what helped me become who I am today. I’ll always be grateful and never forgetful of all the moments, all the lessons. 

To be in days love is celebrated, is for me to say, I’ll never forget all the love I have, have had and will have. Love is love no matter where I find it, where it comes from, if its in the past, present or in my future. 

Love is in every day, today only reminds me that. 

  

To all the followers…

This morning…

It’s not possible for me to express how I am so thankful for all of you that stay and join me everyday on this journey.

You always remind me to be me. You always make me believe the impossible is only what hasn’t been achieved yet.

Please feel free to share, submit and chat. 

Best wishes to all,

Alexa

My pen pall Alexa (queeringstyle.tumblr.com) and I decided to wear the same thing. Here’s what happened. 

when friends get styling together… I met Blake (queerplusfashion.tumblr.com) through Tumblr and we’ve been friends from the first hello. Blake inspires me to dress better and to be the best I can with my style.

Thank you.

The first screening for LGBT History Month @ the University of Leed went really well. 

The movie was 'Venus Boyz' : A journey through a universe of female masculinity.

What we tried was, to bring some queer to the table and, decided this was a great example of the negotiation of female bodies within masculinity.

I helped with the debate that became an intimate conversation about sexuality and gender, that lasted about 2 hours. Only to finish with someone saying they were from Canada and followed, queering style. So, yes I met in person my first Tumblr. follower, just to have them tell me, I was shorter in person =). 

What an event. Next one is going to be on the 27th of February and we’ll be focusing on Spain. If you are near Leeds come around.

See you soon and apparently randomly too.   

It’s official, I have a new photographer.

Meet Thalia.

I didn’t have someone to take my pictures but I have the most amazing, talented friends.

Thank you Thalia for offering to take my pictures and helping me with this project.

New stuff coming up!

The late post about my travel to Brussels =)

I didn’t really get to see the city. After a delayed connection flight and having to spend 8 hours at the airport in Amsterdam I got to Brussels and staid for only around 48 hours. 

I was voted by the board as the new Membership officer, this means I am almost like a PR for IGLYO =) 

Have I told you before how incredible this year is going to be? 

The best.

Do you remember my friend Han Sen ?
He’s back in Malaysia and I miss him and his inspiring style.
Thank You for the contribution my friend.Love the colour co-ordination and the texture/print combination. =)

Preppy, Grey, Yellow and black.

I got this sweater from LYLE&SCOTT at a vintage fair on Saturday for 5£. I really like the yellow touch.

I’m also saying goodbye to my non self tie bow ties so I thought I could pay homage to them on a last shoot. 

Thanks Thalia for being my photographer today. I know the lighting was strange and you really nailed it =) 

Going to Brussels.
Remember I told you about being part of this incredible organization called IGLYO?
This weekend I’m going to Brussels for the board induction. This is a great city and I can’t wait to be part of this incredible team =)

 I do. 
If you don’t know already, and are new to the blog (by the way, hello to the new followers, thanks for staying), You may not know that I am an LGBT activist and a volunteer in different LGBT organizations, locally, nationally and regionally.
I believe that by starting where I was, from my stand point helps me keep focus on why I do it. I am absolutely passionate about my volunteering. It pays no money but, I meet wonderful people, I get opportunities to develop wonderful projects, help people and see change from where I’m standing.
There is no use in thinking of what you can do with what you don’t have. Sometimes the resources are the people right next to you that have the same interests as you do. Sometimes that money for the weekly coffee with that group of friends can go to a cause and the coffee can be at someone’s place. Or if you are not an NGO type of person start with that friend that just needs to talk a little longer. Use something that you can do, that you are good at. I am good with words, so I usually talk, write emails, make phone calls, give support to those who can’t find words. 
In my experience I’ve learned, there is no need to start big. By doing what I can I remember that my contribution may be little but if we all contribute a little that’s how we can achieve change. 
So, yes I do. In difficult times giving to others reminds me that I also am valuable.

Lisbon last

Today was my last day in Lisbon. The weather was cool and the light grey. My company was calm and pleasant. A calm end of the day for a continuous few weeks of meetings and gatherings all over the country. 

Thank you for accompanying me these days. I also wanted to say, HELLO new followers. I see you arriving, welcome to my journey and thank you for following.

P.s.The shirt I’m wearing is short and, I wasn’t wearing a belt. I had to fight the entire day with the shirt to keep it inside my pants. Most of the times it won the battle =) 

Happy New Year

Although there was bad weather and, my usual walking didn’t happen. The new year’s party happened in a warm friendly environment. 

I am spreading hopes that the new (western) year brings lots of good things to all of you =) 

Thank you Ana (the girl in the dress) for the invitation. Porto is always an incredible city to me and the people, good friends.

Thank you!
