Tim Morrison


Tim Morrison writes with a sharp and uncompromising tone, that draws humour and irony from the darkest scene. QueerBashing is
a viciously funny but ultimately moving account of one man's desire to come to terms with himself, and live life as he sees fit.

Tim grew up in Orkney then attended Aberdeen University to study Divinity with the intention of being ordained into the Church of Scotland. He subsequently worked in training and development in Health and Social Care, and now blogs as the OrkneyVole. He is an active political campaigner, including being the lead applicant in the ‘Orkney Four’ case brought against Alistair Carmichael MP under the Representation of the People Act.

Outside of Scotland Tim has lived in London and Middlesbrough; since moving back home to Stromness he has written poetry and short prose published locally.

Seonaid Francis, Director of ThunderPoint Publishing says, ‘Tim Morrison is unflinching in his portrayal of the consequences of self-indulgence, intolerance and hypocrisy, but delivers QueerBashing with wit and charm that belies the horror of the story.’

From the revivalist churches of Orkney in the 1970s, to the gay bars of London and Northern England in the 90s, via the divinity school at Aberdeen, this is the story of McGillivray, self-centered, promiscuous hypocrite, failed Church of Scotland minister, and his own worst enemy. Raw, uncompromising. A viciously funny account of a man's desire to come to terms with himself.
