  1. We want to send some massive love to Baz Floyd from Special Effect, who had a stroke late last year. Sadly despite being in isolation he also somehow caught covid. We’re glad to say that even though he’s still in hospital and he still has a long road ahead of him, he is on the mend, he’s already beaten the COVID and he’s regaining faculties.  Further we’d also like to send our love to his partner Ali Hilborne.
  2. Paige’s “Through Our Eyes” stream which had loads of ‘marginalised’ streamers. From people in the LGBTQIA+ Community, to people with Mental and Physical Health Issues, to BIPOC streamers. Some of their stories were heartbreaking, some were inspirational. There was so much love in the stream it was great. On of the people I found most interesting was a streamer with Dissociation with Parts who’s called “Hobohaus” – HoboHaus – Twitch  It was so interesting watching watching and listening to them talking about their system and how they’re learning to live with themselves. If you want to watch it the VODs are on Arthremis’ YouTube
