The other night as I was drifting off towards sleep, I found myself laughing (audibly) at one of Aliya’s comments on a thread of conversation which somehow turned into a mini swear-fest. This in turn, allowed me to think of an incident she’d quoted on a similar (maybe the same) thread on Facebook – reminding […]

For some this post will make real sense, for others – you’ll think I’m mad; but then coming out as anything, is usually controversial.
