Following our brief (but merited) moment of international fame as the home of the Big Gay Rainbow I'm curious as to exactly how many Kiwi Kossacks are out there?
Admit it, we don't get this opportunity very often. And despite my slight squeamishness that our international Gay Hero is Maurice Williamson (surely the undisputed winner of the 'most-unlikely-older-white-male-heterosexual-conservative-politician-to-get-an-invite-to-appear-on-Ellen prize), I'm determined to seize the moment!
So, if you are a Kiwi Kossack, a US expat living in NZ and following DK, or any expat kiwis out there in the global political familyweb, please reply to this diary and tell me where you come from and maybe add in something moderately interesting about being a Kiwi Kossack (I'm a Kiwi. I'm not aiming high here...).
I promise that if we get 87 responses (8-7 being a number that many Kiwis now have tatooed on their hearts) I will personally ask Brett and Jermaine to write a song about NZ called Big Gay Rainbow! Promise! Because Jermaine lives in the same street as my sister and even tho he goes out in a big hoodie and dark glasses, we KNOW it is him!
And even if you aren't a Kiwi Kossack, this may just be an interesting experiment in the kind of global reach that DK is starting to have...
