Hi, I’m Daniel.
I am a queer, bisexual, working class person from South East London. I carry a quasi-English accent. My time trying to assimilate with the middle class at school went a skew, doubled up with a weak character as a late teen, it’s created a mess of vocals.
A concoction of experiences, depressions and last minute flights got me to where I am currently. Like many, blogging seemed like a great idea for a long time, but that time got real long. After taking a right turn that ended up being the wrong move, I’m regrouping and filling a space that feels personal to me but also lacking in the general online environment.
At the same time, blogging is a byproduct, or you could say biproduct, of pursuing a career in freelance writing and content creation.
An International Relations graduate, returning to higher education in London this September (2018). However, in the meantime, I’m going to be reaching out to communities I have otherwise watched from a far and help those that need support.
I talk frankly about mental health and sexuality, I want to make a push towards creating some kind of education around race-politics in this country (read: teaching white people what race is, why reverse racism doesn’t exist and why even if they have a black friend, they still uphold racist structures) and ensure that intersectional feminism, and intersectionality in general, is brought to the forefront of discussions; be it regarding society, culture, politics etc.
I hope, with my personal endeavours, to create a discourse that allows others to be critical and gain introspection on their own position in society and how we can, in our varying communities, come together to challenge the status-quo.
I also like pizza, dislike exercising and enjoy going red in the sun.
