They have three Bedlington Terriers that he enjoys walking. 

Tony loves books, film, theatre, and nails!

Michael Swindells

Volunteer Outreach Community Lead, Writer in Residence... and Treasurer

Michael is a meant-to-be retired boring finance bod who likes to poke bigoted people with a stick.

In his spare time he writes LGBTQIA+ fiction and is currently procrastinating over a PhD in creative writing which he may never do - but probably will. He also eats way too many wine gums.

Michael is our Outreach Community Lead. Michael is the main point of contact for 1:1 support - he's the dude who will answer the messages.
