balloon.jpgThis month we have two guest bloggers, Charlie Hale and Maria Phelan. Please give them a warm welcome!

Here’s a bit about them in their own words:

Charlie Hale is a Computer Science student and blogger by night and asleep by day. They’re a genderqueer, kinky, polyamorous pan/bisexual who can’t keep their mouth shut.

Maria is a Senior Health Advocate at Harm Reduction International. Maria holds an MA in Understanding and Securing Human Rights from the Institute of Commonwealth Studies, University if London. Prior to working at Harm Reduction International, she worked for the National Children’s Bureau coordinating the Children and Young People’s HIV Network and the Terrence Higgins Trust. At Harm Reduction International she coordinates the European Harm Reduction Network and works to raise the profile of harm reduction through lobbying and advocacy activities.
