Mine and Larry Forsberg's song "The Best Of Times" has gone to number one on the Club 80's "new generation" chart. It's Eurotix's first number one and I feel so happy and honoured!

Homophobe, time to man up

I came across the following comment on a forum about a TV series:

"Gay kissing. I mean, really, does the general viewing public want to see this? Call me a homophobe. I don't want to see it. Turned me off to an otherwise watchable show."

I just had to write a reply:

"I'm gay and I don't want to see negative, stupid comments like yours. So I guess we're even. Yes, you might be a homophobe, but more than that, you're a coward and an insensitive person. I'm not offended by all the straight kissing that dominate TV in general. So I wish you would just cut the crap, man up and realise that people are different.

Gay love shouldn't be hidden away just because it's not your 'cup of tea'. Gay people exist. That's life. Just accept it and your life will be a lot better, trust me. It will save you a lot of anger and pain. It might even help you gain some new, interesting friends."

Christmas 2015

I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas! In Sweden we celebrate on the 24th, so I spent Christmas Eve together with mother, grandmother and my uncle Toni. We had too much food and sweets, of course. On Christmas Day, my sister Diana and her boyfriend stopped by, so we got to celebrate twice this year. We ended the evening watching the horror classic "Black Christmas".

Here are some of my Christmas gifts:

I love the Bananarama and Stock Aitken Waterman singles box sets. Sixty-four CD's of pure disco-pop heaven:

My favourite girls, mum and grandma:

My sister and her boyfriend, opening gifts:

And finally a photo of our Christmas tree:
