Diary update, Nicole: October 2022

I’m having a lazy morning this morning!  I’ve been busy with the House of Deviant (drag group) recently.  We had a show in Newport the other week and we have another one planned for December. We were disappointed that not very many people came along to the last show.

 I met my new boyfriend through the drag group – he comes along to the shows.  He’s also part of Gig Buddies so we get to see quite a bit of each other.  I was on the Welsh news because we were at Pride in Cardiff last month with House of Deviant.

I’m so proud of my friend Sophie for winning an award at the Womenspire event in Cardiff last week.  She came down to Cardiff the night before and we went to Mainstage (drag bar).  She’s a brilliant support to me because she travels from west Wales to come to the drag events in Newport. 

I’ve also joined Hijinx theatre group in Cardiff; we’re currently practising for Dr Doolittle at the Wales Millennium Centre.

I’m off to Harry Potter World next month too!  I’ll be going back to Mainstage with Innovate Trust and going to a Gig Buddies event in Cardiff.  My mum drives me lots of places and Ernie Sparkles, who runs the House of Deviant also picks me up sometimes too – he’s such a lovely person.

I don’t have a Gig Buddy of my own at the moment, because they don’t currently cover my area, but I went to watch some volunteers run the Cardiff Half Marathon to raise money for Gig Buddies.

I’m still working a couple of days a week
