Hey! I'm Graham, a 30-something from Edinburgh, living in London. I tweet and blog about life, love, and purpose from my perspective as a gay guy, an introvert, and, ultimately, a lost soul.

Roam these pages if you're lonely and listless, or if you're looking for something but you don't know what, or if you feel like you're chasing a better version of yourself. I can't promise you'll read anything worth reading because I write purely for myself, but, nonetheless, welcome.
I don’t want to follow. I’m not sure I want to lead. It’s easy when you’re young. You don’t understand that you don’t know. And as you grow, your confidence doesn’t…

Heartstopper is super cute. There’s gays younger than I who are saying here how bittersweet they find it because they never experienced this as a teenager. That’s so sad. I feel immense gratitude that I did, coming out in 1999 at 16. I experienced everything I needed to as a teen

I experienced the fear, the paranoia, the depression, yes, but I also experienced the fun, the freedom, the first love that any other teenager should. I find it incredibly hard to understand how this isn’t a universal experience even in the UK over 20 years later.
