Hello folks I'm a maladjusted Hippo who likes to do music with my guitar.

I'm afraid my posts will almost certainly contain cats, bad guitar, kid lamentations, gratuitous FROOOOT and the graphic description of leavings. Both mine and those of the various animals /people it is my privilege to follow after with a shovel.

Me shoulders are made of broken crockery and sellotape. And me timeline is bloody daft at best.

To your place

Warm and foggy

Today is International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia. It's celebrated on 17 May to mark the anniversary of the decision, in 1990, to remove homosexuality from the International Classification of Diseases published by the World Health Organisation. #IDAHOBIT2022

Heyy cutiees, today is IDAHOBIT - International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia!🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️

32 years ago today, homosexuality was no longer classified as a mental illness by the WHO!

We still have such a long way to go, but have also made it this far.
No matter what label you use, or none at all - any color of the rainbow is welcome here. 🌈

Have a wonderful day!💖

Don't be afraid.
Don't be afraid to be who you are.
Don't be afraid to show your true colours.

Today we reaffirm our commitment to advance a #UnionofEquality.

A Union of equal rights and freedoms, where diversity is celebrated as richness.


:bob_ross: Found a clip of Bob Ross saying "We don't make mistakes, we have happy accidents". And I think if you keep this attitude in mind, it's easier to just keep going. #MastoArt #tapeandmagazines

Tonight, rainbow colours shine brighter than hate!

Ahead of the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, we lit up our headquarters as a sign of support for the LGBTIQ community.

This is my final #CuratorPrompts for the mini challenge to do a #5MinuteSketch of the prompts everyday for 7 days. This was a really fun challenge. I think I've learnt that there's a lot of joy to be had in just making lil studies of stock photos - not everything needs to be some grand art project that has a deeper meaning or purpose, which is something I often struggle with.
