Why I Want to go to America

I keep getting asked why I want to go to America to study and when I ask myself I'm not quite sure. The media obviously plays a part in all of this, so much of the television we watch is made in America or based in America; to the extent that I even find it hard to differentiate an American accent from an English one - unless it is blatant.

That can't be the main reason though; surely. I don't watch nearly enough T.V for that to be the case. I've bombarded my readers recently with It Gets Better videos and I think the following may perhaps sum up one of the reasons I want to go to America.

If that didn't do it for you, read about Harvey Milk or even watch the film adaptation of his life 'Milk'

I'm waiting for the David Cameron/Nick Cleg It Gets Better video: but I don't think it's going to come. - Okay, the problem is adressing the suicide of gay teenagers in America but still: I made one and I'm not American.

Am I?

  1. Alan Duncan, one Conservative MP back in Leicester is gay. I think he is the MP for Melton and Rutland (you may have heard about him from the expenses scandal LOL). He'd be a goodun to make a video for the cause. Yeah I doubt no one will get a video out of Tricky Cleggy and Cautious Cameron...Obama's a badass.
