This week’s lesson: Know and Respect yourself

Sometimes you have to learn that you're working on something bigger than yourself. The world. And the ones who know and understand, are the ones who will stick around. After all what else do you need but that? My internal thoughts to myself.. as I struggle with shedding the overly-empathic and supportive self. I've helped [...]

Early morning meandering thoughts on race, desire and Garvey

Marking difference begets miscommunication, which breeds misunderstanding and could lead to feelings of contempt, hatred and hurt. Yesterday's class on colour, difference, browning and Jamaica was great and very, very interesting, not least of all because of a small breakout session as we discussed with our peers the question ; 'How is mixing problematic in [...]

Tyrannical rule in UK. On the #EveofWar I cried. Now I cry #GivebackmyTax

The world is in a sad state of affairs.. Protests and the will of the general people, those who express it are not being heard, protests online, offline, mass-MP emailing, die-ins etc. Our fellow countrymen who extend their voices in this arena who are impassioned either against or for are not being counted. Instead the politicians [...]

MDX LGBT Society Talk About their Film Awareness Video

Collating my work for the blog. It seems so long ago that I was at Middlesex with a entire gang of guys, gals and in-betweens who enjoyed engaging with the university life. As well as having a sense of ownership of the atrium spaces in the Grove. Beautiful place to film within, it really should feature more in productions.

The Literary Gazette

Sometimes the best events come from the simplest of ideas.

Ahead of the North London Literary festival, Middlesex students are hard at work at many creative endeavours.  Though we hunger for news on the highly anticipated app, other creative committees and students are conducting their events earlier in more public forums. 

On the 1st of February, a few intrepid equality and liberation activists or in other-words Middlesex University’s LGBT Society (MDX LGBT) banded together to create a Campaign Video.

I, the secretary of MDX LGBT, caught up with the President and Treasurer to find out more about why and how the video was created as well as their future aspirations for the Middlesex Society.

I am joined by Peter Dillon, 20, the President of MDX LGBT and Tom Stock, 26, the Treasurer of MDX LGBT, who share their views and journey on leaving a lasting legacy.
