Diary update: Nicole, February 2022

Last time we spoke, I’d been performing in a drag show at the theatre in Newport.  I think another House of Deviant production is planned for April but we haven’t started rehearsals yet.

I’ve been out a few times to the drag bar in Cardiff with friends; we went the other week to celebrate a friend’s birthday and it was great fun.  One of our mates came over from west Wales for it.  These are friends who are also members of AWPF and we enjoy getting together.  I’m going to Wetherspoons later today and we’ve got tickets for the Wales vs Italy rugby international soon.

Work is busy and I’m really enjoying it. I volunteer for one day per week and am paid for the other two days. That’s a good balance because I get paid but also feel like I’m contributing something.   It’s great to have a good routine and being able to work makes me feel positive and productive.  I see my boyfriend when I’m in work too, so that’s a bonus!

I haven’t had any problems accessing my health care appointments these past few months.  I’ve still been attending the online parties that the Insight app organises. I’m part of the ‘Peer-Led Team’ which organises the social events. I really enjoy them. I’m feeling happy and upbeat at the moment.
