Summer-Time and the Living is Easy…ish

Oh, how I’ve missed you! In this Tesoro Irlandese post, let me catch you up on one of the most whirlwind months I have had in Rome (where the summer keeps getting hotter…) and share some of my exciting news for the following year!

Gay Pride Month in Rome: What’s been going on

Finalmente, the most wonderful time of the year is upon us: Gay Pride Month. For this blogpost, I’ll give you the rundown on what I’ve been up to & where and who to follow for more LGBTQIA+ events if you’re ever in the Eternal(ly Fabulous) City.

Broke in Rome

In this Tesoro Irlandese blogpost, I explore what fun things there are to do in Rome when one is feeling particularly lazy and definitely broke. From street-art tours to religious pilgrimage, this post has it all.

The Price of Politeness

Hello and benvenuti to yet another instalment of Roman Hot Tea. This Tesoro Irlandese post is my Carrie Bradshaw moment. Please, gentlepeople, take your seats. Today, I wish to out myself as not the table-flipping badass I thought I always would be in the face of a total and utter stronzo. I also want to explore some pensieri on social behaviour and the strange place those of us single in our twenties’ find ourselves.

Amare e Essere Amati or To Love and To Be Loved

Rome and Queer History: The 1850’s Lesbian Art Commune on the Hills

In this Tesoro Irlandese post, I discuss the fascinating period in Queer Roman History when a community of queer women artists lived on the Seven Hills. Dubbed the ‘white marmorean flock’ by Henry James, this post explores the successes and heartbreaks of Cushman, Hays, Hosmer and Stibbens.

Stavo Cazzeggiando!

In this Tesoro Irlandese post, I catch you up on the last few crazy weeks in Rome. All the sites, the nights, the drama and the notions. It’s fairly long so dip in and out as you please.

‘diventare uno con me stessa’

In this Tesoro Irlandese blogpost, I own up to having kept much of my personal experiences here in Rome a secret. The results of my Instagram poll on audience interest was unanimous: spill the T. I vow to show you the true Rome, as I live it, as I see it. You can find this content on the Crybaby O’Clock section.
