Post of The Month

One-in-a-million is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Just a bit of fun here if you could create an advent calendar what would you put in it and why.

For me you would still get chocolate 😆😆
But inside each door is a task for the day. Something that includes you helping/talking to others, doing something festive and spreading Christmas cheer
For example

1. Tell your parents/carers you love them
2. Say hello when passing an OAP (that might be the only thing someone says to them all week)
3. Watch a Christmas movie
4. Help someone in need e.g put some spare change in a charity box, buy a warm drink for the homeless person who sits on the corner, dothe washing up ha ha ha😂
5 make hot chocolate
6. Visit your grandparents (if you donít already) They will more than likely love to see you.
7. Sing a Christmas song with a friend
8. Dress up in something Christmasy when you do your shopping.

You get the idea 😂😉 my reason for this is to get people in the mood and understand what Christmas actually means.

What would yours have and why."

  • Pride Campaigns

    So with it being pride month around the world we're seeing many pride campaigns.

    Recently one that's being causing some issues is the london pride campaign, for those who don't know their campaign is heavily based on straight people, rather than focusing what pride is actually about.

    Another noticeable campaign has been with skittles removing their rainbow in order to let the focus of the 'rainbow' be based on the LGBTQ+ community.

    Along the theme of the london pride campaign there's also a hashtag that's becoming increasingly more popular on twitter which is #heterosexualprideday.

    I'm curious to know what people's opinions are on the way London has handled their campaign and people actively trying to take LGBT pride month and focus it on heterosexuals

    For some reference, here is a link to an article about the London pride posters. This campaign is quite obviously pointed towards heterosexuals, which I find strange. I've seen other campaigns on the tube that were completely different. They were quotes from people talking about what pride meant to them and about their experiences at pride parades/festivals.
