Our Big Fat Lesbian Love In: May 

So this is late by about a week and I would apologise but it would be a lie! I wasn’t going to write it at all, had a bit of a crisis of confidence to be honest, but then I decided, why not, so what if I’m the only person who reads this it’s first…

Our Big Fat Lesbian Love In: April 2017

So, it’s been a month and now I’m back with the first of my monthly roundups. I gave myself a month off mostly because blogging about Drag Idol killed off and desire I had to blog any more, there’s nothing like putting yourself in a position where a blog is expected every week to really…

Meet The Queens

So it’s finally final day and what better time to get to know our top four a little better. It struck me last week that I knew absolutely nothing about some of the queens and only a tiny bit about the others. I’m nosy so I sent the top four some questions (they were scribbled…

Drag Idol: Semi-Finals Week

Anyone who, like me, didn’t make it down to Switch on Sunday night to watch the semi final of Drag Idol probably woke up on Monday to a Facebook news feed full of cheesecake, glorified pubs and overpaid trannies and had not the slightest clue about what was going on. I gave up trying to…

Drag Idol: Week 5

Are we only on week five? I feel like I’ve said that every week but this year honestly feels like it’s been going on forever, maybe because I’ve put myself in a position where I’m writing a blog every week? But anyway, here we are, weeks five and the eagerly awaited (just not by me)…

Drag Idol: Week 4 

I can’t quite believe that we are only on week four, I kind of feel like this years Drag Idol has been going on forever and I’m already starting to forget what happened in earlier weeks. Myself and Jack Plastiq spent some time this week filming some future content for the blog rather than watching…

Drag Idol 2017: Week 3

So Libby asked me to write a guest blog for Drag Idol week three, and of course I jumped at the chance.. Those of you who know me well, know that I participated as Newcastle’s FIRST FAUX QUEEN (as well as a Drag King) in Drag Idol 2007 (back when it was actually hosted in…

Drag Idol 2017: Week 2

So here it is, the eagerly awaited (oh shut up, at least one person is bound to be eager) Drag Idol week 2 blog post from Ourbigfatlesbianlife. I can only apologise that it’s taken me this long, I had intended to get it out last night but the words just weren’t coming so it’s 7am…

Drag Idol 2017: Week One

*disclaimer: the opinions expressed within this blog are mine and mine alone and are in no way affiliated with Drag Idol* Sunday night on Newcastle’s gay scene saw the beginning of drag competition Drag Idol. Moving into its eleventh year, the annual drag competition draws viewers from far and wide both live on the night…

Veganuary 

So both Sarah and myself are quite into food and we like trying new things, recently we’ve been trying the odd Vegan recipe, even going so far as to buy a vegan recipe book when we were on mini moon in Edinburgh. Sarah had read about Veganuary online and we talked about doing it together,…

New Year, New Me (Or Something Like That)

MERRY CHRISTMAS! I hope you all had the best Christmas you possibly could and spent the time surrounded by friends and family (and too much food) I was quite excited about Christmas this year, it was our first Christmas as Mrs & Mrs and the first year that we would spend the whole day together…

The Speech I Would Have Made (If I wasn’t so shy…)

I didn’t make a speech at our wedding (in my notes that sentence read I didn’t make a speech at hour wedding’ which I’m going to blame on wine, or emotions, or lack of sleep or something!) mostly because the thought of public speaking makes me want to vomit, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t…
