About Tonoy Emroz

I'm an adventurous free spirit. I speak what I believe. My interests include nerd activities- reading, writing, watching documentaries, and awesome activities- surprises, jogging, meeting new people, concerts, shows, movies, theatre, sports, hiking, bush-walking, fishing, travelling, Candlelit dinner, aggressive daydreaming, and anyone who can fix my crazy life. On a rainy day, you might find me in a coffee shop reading or writing bizarre articles. If we're ever to meet, buy me a cold lager and I promise to be nice to you.

We cannot support oppression

Why should it be different for individuals of a sexual minority?
