We had a cracking launch party for Twisted50 last week. The turnout was awesome, the cast playing the characters from the stories were terrifying and it was fantastic to finally meet the writers. The venue was The Cinema Museum in Elephant and Castle, which was a perfect match for our Twisted lot. The Create50 team did a fabulous job of scaring us all to death throughout the night.

Violence and Masculinity

Two days ago I started Reading Jackon Katz’ s book ‘Macho Paradox’. This morning Mike Lousada shared the following article on Facebook. http://www.theguardian.com/music/2015/may/20/concert-pianist-james-rhodes-wins-right-to-publish-autobiography The article moved me to tears, as every article about abuse does.

I made this little film because I had to exorcise a vision I had... At the time I made it (around 2014) I considered it to be complete; I had created what I needed to create, with the resources I had, during that time. Digging it out in 2019, I cringe at the voice over and music! So, it is not quite complete for me now. With time and more resources available to me now, I will eventually revisit it. For now, I like to watch it with the sound muted, and enjoy the sense of freedom.

This week I had intended to write a blog about the rivalry between women. My aim was to discuss my observations, from my own personal experiences, and suggest, that we all hug each and unite to make the world a better place. As I normally do when I write, I research other sources and I became reacquainted with the political debate between the Radical Feminists and the Liberal Feminists, and then I came across the term TERF, Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists – this seems to be the latest...
