I’m a sports reporter based in the north of Scotland, and I’m bisexual.
Those are the key things for this site, but that’s not all there is to me. I’ve played cricket on and off since 2009, I’m a massive football fan, I love pro wrestling, I’ve seen hundreds of bands. I’m constantly referencing songs or TV shows, I’m super competitive.
I know what it’s like to struggle with self-doubt, to feel like an outcast, a misfit. That’s why I wanted to create this platform. I wanted to create a space where anyone could read one of these articles and believe there is hope, that it is possible to be part of the LGBT+ community and be involved in sport at the same time.
I know, that sounds kinda cheesy.
But from my own experience, latching on to things like that is everything. Even when you have nothing else in common, seeing or reading about the experiences of the LGBT+ community – it’s like there’s a connection there, an instant relatability and respect. If, through sharing stories of people who have been there and done that, I can help one person feel more comfortable, then this will have been worth it.
