Meet the delegates: Kelly McGrath

Welcome Kelly McGrath, our penultimate delegate to sign up for an introductory blog post. Not only has Kelly been a huge help with analysing the feedback from the 2011 Meet, but she’s actually created us a UK Meet app for this year! iPhone and Android users can download the Bloodhound app and you’ll find the UK Meet listed as an event, complete with timetables and extras.

Kelly has also included a picture of herself dancing with a stripper at GRL. I’m afraid we can’t promise male strippers this weekend, Kelly, but I hope you still have a wonderful time!

Kelly McGrath1) Tell us about yourself in 100 words or fewer.

Howerya! I’m Kelly McGrath, I live in Ireland but was born in Coventry near 30 years ago now… damn that sounds wayyyy too old for me! I met a few of you 2 years ago at the 2011 Meet in Milton Keynes and damn did I love it, we had some craic and was disgusted I couldn’t make it to the meet last year. Last year I ended up at GRL instead and what a time it was too. I started writing seriously after many a kick in the backside during this event.

2) Tell us something about you that might come as a surprise!

Ok so you know the song: La Bamba? Well I only know the song in Gaelic! It was taught to us in school here in Ireland. Who knows if we find a karaoke ….

3) What do you like most about the LGBTQ genre?

You won’t find a more open-minded genre out there. There is nothing frowned upon no matter your kink!

4) What are you most looking forward to about UK Meet?

Getting to meet some old and new friends! It’s not often I get out and even less often to be in the open environment that I remember from the last Meet in 2011.

5) If you had one wish which would come true at UK Meet, what would that be?

That no matter how much I eat that I will STILL fit into the jeans I bought as my goal-weigh jeans 3 months for the UK Meet… Hey you said it was a wish! I suppose I have more luck seeing a leprechaun …
