S-boy has been working on an independent documentary called "Killing Off the Beat".  Follow this journey here.   Here is a brief outline of the film...

Forensic, detailed and literary in the style of Werner Herzog and Errol Morris, ‘Killing Off The Beat’ will follow moves to unravel and shed further light on a dark part of Sydney’s recent history that likely saw close to 100 men fall prey to ‘gay-hate killings’ – many of which were not properly investigated by police at the time despite links between a large number of the incidents.

Spanning a period between the first Mardi Gras in 1978 to the present day, the film will focus on a number of key threads as community and political pressure continues to grow for a Royal Commission or another independent high-level body to look at the historical ‘gay-hate killings’, while compelling current-day cases of alleged police brutality will suggest an uneasy relationship continues to exist between the LGBTI community and NSW Police to this day.

I on the other hand, have been bikeling through life as usual... A nice job change but still on a bike friendly route sees me cycling to work each day.   I am amazed by the reaction when people at my new workplace found out that I cycle to work.  It is a mixture of awe, wonder and why and how.  Once I explain that it just takes a few good purchases (waterproof bag, jelly shoes - for rain, lights for night and a basket for your stuff), they seem to be more open to it.  Although it does make me think about why we are so scared to get a bit wet by rain on the odd occasion.  

So thats about it for me at the moment, although I did recently purchase a second-hand go pro camera which I am going to pop on my bike.  I thought I would film my ride to work and take you all on the ride with me.

Won't be so long till next time xx
