HAHAT Hop

 First time entrance to this wonderful hop, so let’s get started…


So this hop is to bring spot lights and make people aware of homophobia and transphobia

 
So I’m meant to spend a moment to talk about something but in all honesty I can’t think of anything. My area of passion seems to be Movember – but you’ll learn that later in the year *cough-November-cough*—so it seems when it comes to this I’m lost.

I have been truly fortunate to live quite a sheltered life. not only in the facts that where I came from there wasn’t anything that stood out in my mind; no high death count, no divorce rates,  but mostly for the fact that I never saw anything different from same-sex couples to hetro-couples. They have always been the same to me.

Yeah, as I got older my understanding of it all came into play, but I honestly can’t say I ever felt differently about how anyone wanted to live, or whom they wanted to love.

And isn’t that a reality we are fighting to archive. And just like every other time something major has come up, and a group of people have pushed and fought for human rights, they have been hit back at, and they have been told to stay quiet and yet they’ll win. I believe that this will happen. I can only hope that it’s my children who live in this world where everyone is equal under the title of family, no matter who they love. And not my children’s grandchildren.

Ok, now onto the fun stuff, yay!, I will give one winner a copy of one of my books, you can chose whether you want a back-list or something to come.
Basically, this means you can either get from book 1 – 5 in my Moonlit Wolves series, or book 6 when it comes out – or book 1 in my November series, which will be coming out on the first of November

Anyway, in laymen terms: Prize = 1 ebook copy of one of my books.
You have the whole of the 17th/May/2014 – national homophobia & transphobia day to enter. Just leave a comment on this post, anything really, and a way for me to contact you (email, facebook, twitter) to let you know you’ve won!

UPDATE: I realised that this hop actually goes for a week, so I will be giving away 2 copies. 1 at the end of the 17th like I promised above, and than again on the 24th, all names will run in both giveaways. have fun and good luck.

Have fun and please check out the other people in this hop


And for those who just want to head back to the main page, here’s the link

  1. I'm checking blogs early. Happy to see yours up! I think the best way to push for progress is to make noise, and that's sort of what we're doing here ^.^

    Thanks for taking part.

  3. This is very moving for me. Just lost my sister who was a lesbian. I miss her so much. No matter what people said to her about being with someone of the same sex she proudly held her head up. She was a great inspiration to all of us. This is a wonderful blog post <3

  19. I too feel the same as you. "Yeah, as I got older my understanding of it all came into play, but I honestly can’t say I ever felt differently about how anyone wanted to live, or whom they wanted to love." Love is love, and I respect it. Probably, that's the reason I support LGBT community.

  22. Creat post we are all supposed to be equal so why treat others differently I will never understand why people do this.

  23. Great post. I agree with you. I never understood why people should be looked at differently because of who they fall in love with. it's weird and wrong.
