So January wasn’t all bad…

…it’s still my least favourite month, but it had some pretty sweet moments.
Dark Angels had its first review – possibly the best review of my career so far. “This is no less than creativity at its most lucid and profound.” There’s no way it can be anything other than downhill from that, but I’m overjoyed, nonetheless. Many, many thanks to So So Gay.
We also had a lovely message from composer Jonathan Kulp, whose settings of Emily Dickinson form an integral part of the Dark Angels programme. A really fantastic composer (and former competitive skateboarder!) – check him out.
I hopefully managed to talk some sense about media transphobia and Burchill to Pride Live Radio and, with Trans Week at the New Statesman brought forward, was named as a trans role model (in some very good company). Writing this makes me feel somewhat bashful but also, it must be admitted, rather proud.
Start as you mean to go on, right? Come on 2013 – let’s have at it.
