eurovision vote for uk

The Eurovision song contest is always a joy to watch and if anything the quality of the songs and staging has gone up a level over the last couple of years. Sweden did a great job hosting the 2016 contest and I really like the ‘edge of your seat’ nature of the new points system. I feel bad for the Australian entry of course, but Ukraine is a worthy winner and it was a fitting end to the night.

Of all the tweets I read during the live contest though, this one stood out for me and made me smile. We (the UK) really don’t have a lot of luck points wise do we :). Joe and Jake and their song ‘You’re Not Alone’ did okay with the jury but woefully with the public. And let’s not get started with the Irish entry! Oh well, I enjoy the show anyway. It’s ‘the taking part’ and all that!

colton haynes comes out

Okay so Colton Haynes coming out of the closet isn’t exactly the biggest surprise on the face of the planet, considering those photos from way back when and his half way coming out as gay “was it a secret?” tumblr post (hich received 26,000 notes), in reference to his ‘secret gay past’.

Nevertheless, it’s nice to see that he’s now taken a more public approach to his sexuality now and I’m really happy that he’s opened up about how he’s happier and less anxious now that he’s taken this step to come out as gay.

“It took me so long to get to this point, but I’m doing so good,” Haynes said. “I’m happier than I’ve ever been, and healthier than I’ve ever been, and that’s what I care about.”
