We had a FABULOOOOOOOOOOOOOUS premiere for Down's Syndrome Norfolk's DVD "We love our lives" on World Down Syndrome Day on 21st March. I booked Rod the Harper to play music as people arrived; Ruski ace photographer to be paparazzi for the evening; Dicee to DJ. We were in Fusion in the Forum which is my favourite place in the world for premieres - I love seeing kids lounging on the beanbags watching themselves on the big screen.

I had a sweet time making a little promotional movie for Anam Cora and their "music for the soul". At times meditative, at times enlivening, at times juicy, their singing includes natural harmonies that arise from deep listening. You can find out more about them on Mary Benefiel's website.

We had a great launch of the Great Yarmouth BLAH LGBT Youth Group last week at the local library. Loads of local organisations and young people came down to say hi. Sadly my stint as BLAH Development Worker is just about to finish. I've had a wonderful time developing the group in North Norfolk and doing all the LGBT awareness-training in schools and youth groups. I'm really proud that in my year with the Norfolk LGBT Project we've set up two new Youth Groups and spoken to over 3,000 schoolchildren! I finish on 31st March. Can't wait to see them all again at Norwich Pride on 25th July.

We had another wonderful V-Day in Norwich and over 200 people took part in our "Break the Chain" dance outside the Forum as part of the One Billion Rising global campaign to stop violence against women.

I had a gorgeous afternoon filming my friends Ellie, Kizzy and Peggy who are starring in the new DVD for Down's Syndrome Norfolk. Ellie lives in her own place and she invited her pals over for home-made lasagne. I've known these young women since they were children so it was delightful to see them as adults having a lovely time together. I was very pleased they agreed to don their Action Ts to pose with me for this photo.
