Last week I had the opportunity to sit in on one of Cara-friend‘s ShoutOut anti-bullying workshops. The workshop¬†aimed at young people of secondary school age, and aims to educate them on what it is like to grow up as a LGBT teen in Northern Ireland and how their words and actions can have an effect on LGBT youth. The workshop’s emphasis on tackling ignorance through education and it’s honest, frank approach to talking about some sensitive and difficult topics was refreshing to see; and the overarching attempt to provoke empathy from a bunch of high school kids was (in my view) somewhat of a success, though it was not without its difficulties.

In a week, Robin and I are packing up our life and moving back home to Northern Ireland. The past three years in Gothenburg have been nothing short of amazing. I got to see and experience things I never thought I would. I got to meet many different people from all corners of the globe and all walks of life and in a few exceptionally lucky cases, I got to call some of them my friends. As a result, I’m not the same person I was when I arrived.
