It’s not always easy

[Mild Trigger Warning for Depression]

Like a disparagingly high number of queer people in New Zealand, I’ve been battling with depression for many years, which recently has been rearing it’s ugly head. (More on this later.)

I’ve been meaning over the last month to blog about awesome queer stuff in new zealand, but unfortunately my depression has been blinding me to it all, and all I can find is triggering stuff that makes me angry — there’s a lot of things I didn’t blog about, things that while I felt were important, were much worse than shitty beer advertising, awful school curricula comparing us to serial killers, and columnists blaming lesbians for the London riots.

So, in the mean time, I’m going to hunt down some awesome queer things — awesome stories, art, films, anything. I’m going to deliberately ignore the bad stuff for a while, unless it’s simultaneously big, local and time┬ádependent.

So, I’m just going to say *e-hugs*, and I’ll be back in a few days, hopefully with something awesome.
