As Pride is happening all around us now and throughout the month of June, I thought I'd share a few links with folks that I just found; which might be of interest to some. :)  (Ones which I wish I'd found eeeeeons ago- as a little bi blind girl. ;))  

For many, it's hard enough to find decent disability resources- if any at all; depending on where one lives.  For many others, the same goes for GLBT-Q-related resources.  But put those two together, and most might think that finding any assistance w/pertinent issues would be a virtual impossibility.  I know I sure did- up until last night. :)  So for those who might be in a similar situation, that's why I'm sharing this with you.  If you or someone you know could use this info, pass it on! :D

For those who are blind or visually impaired and part of the GLBT-Q community, there's, a division of the ACB.
For folks with all types of disabilities in the UK and beyond, there's, They offer free membership for disabled folks in the GLBT-Q community.  
Plus there's a great, GLBT-Q inclusive online magazine, full of info for people of all kinds of abilities.  It offers stuff about everything from entertainment to finding work. :) -f

Annnd that's all I have for now, but if I find more, you can bet they'll be posted here as well. :)
Hope you are all well, and Happy Pride, y'all!
Holy shit.. I have a visually impaired rat!!! O.O It turns out Houdini, my little escape artist, is almost entirely blind. After noticing various behaviours I'd started to come to that conclusion, but after talking to some people, it's pretty well clinched. My wittle Houdini can pretty much only see light and shadow... Wow.. now I gotta think back to my mobility days, thinof my blind friends, myself and my visual impairment, and apply it to a tiny, month and a half old baby rat... Damn.. no wonder the thing panicked when picked up, and why he's so timid. Poor little guy... Makes me wanna hug 'im all the more. ..Funny how Fate works out like that sometimes, huh?

Oh, and I found my keyes. ^_^ ..Paid $13 for 'em, but I found 'em. :):)
Now off to a bit of Christmas shopping online before workies...
