My name is Ted Burr. I am a 31 year old queer man, living in Kingston-Upon-Hull, England. I grew up in East Yorkshire, and studied at a university in West Yorkshire, before coming to Hull to settle down. It has been a long process and a lot of it is documented in my blog section here.
I have been blogging for over 10 years, but only a selection of that decade is present here. In September 2019, I chose to stop blogging and share my life experiences, thoughts, beliefs and opinions via other mediums including my podcast ‘Burr Necessities‘.
I have been known in the past to talk openly about my queerness and have been referred to as a social media influencer for body positivity. These are two things I remain passionate about and will continue to guide projects and choices in my life.
I am a support worker for homeless people in the city, as well as a trustee for a charity, and I am part of the team behind delivering Pride in Hull. All opinions expressed previously and going into the future are my own and do not reflect the opinions of my employer or other agencies I am associated with.
