As well as my work as a commentator and writer, I try to use the platform that I have to advocate for important issues where I have some personal experience. In particular, I am trying to be a positive force for LGBTQ+ representation in our industry, and to encourage people from all walks of life to talk openly about their mental health by doing the same myself.
In January 2021 I wrote a piece for WrestleTalk Magazine highlighting the chequered history but hopeful future of LGBTQ+ representation in the pro wrestling industry, and also publicly discussed my own sexuality for the first time. My goal now is to be a positive example to others of a gay man who has found a welcoming home in the wrestling industry, and to be open about my own struggles and successes in case my story is helpful to others. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to discuss this topic.
I have battled anxiety and OCD since I was a teenager and know how much misery mental illness can cause. Again, I want to talk openly about my own story in hopes of helping others, and I try to fundraise for mental health charities when I can. Most recently, in 2019 a friend and I walked 90 miles in three days along the route of Hadrian's Wall from the east to west coast of England, raising money for CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably). I am always open to talking about mental health - please contact me if you would like to.
