Blog Hop Against Homophobia and Transphobia

HAHAT 2014

Hi, everyone!
Happy International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia!

I’m glad to be a part of this Hop and I’m happy you decided to stop by my little corner of the world wide web.

I was going to write about a conversation that I had a few days ago about discrimination in Poland, but then I saw this video earlier today and decided that THIS, this is my post. So here you go:

(brought to you by Arcade Fire & Andrew Garfield)


In celebration of the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia and as a part of the Hop, I’m running a giveaway. You can win one of two copies of “Running Off the Edge”, my Winter Olympics m/m love story. To enter, you have to leave a comment on this post (please include your preferred format for e-books).
The giveaway ends May 25th. I will contact the lucky winners by e-mail.
Edit: the lucky winners are Rissa and Wendy H. Congratulations!


After the knee injury, Liam O’Connor, the former gold medalist, is no longer able to compete at the Olympics. He’s in Sochi as an assistant coach for another male figure skater and hopes to avoid Eric Lanney as much as possible.
Meanwhile Eric is back to compete for gold in pair skating, but is that the only thing that will be important to him? Maybe when the former lovers meet again in Russia, they will both learn that a gold medal isn’t the greatest prize you can win at the Winter Olympics.

For more messages from the participants of the Hop, check out the site: HopAgainstHomophobia. There are well over hundred giveaways involved, too!

  1. 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 and blog hop <3

    • I’m sorry for your loss!
      And I agree, this blog hop is wonderful, there are so many people today speaking up for the cause. I’m glad you liked my post.

  4. Thank you for sharing this video. I’m not sure if I would have ever come across it since I don’t listen to Arcade Fire but the message really sticks with you.
