The Gadoodleborger by Donna Williams

The Gadoodlborger is a term that became familiar in my book Somebody Somewhere.  It denoted a person who could translate different 'normalities', a 'bridgekeeper' between different worlds.  It was the highest compliment I could pay to those who understood instinctually there was no one 'normality' and the inherent equality in difference - what it was to be naturally and truly diversity friendly.  

I then wrote a poem, The Gadoodleborger which appeared in the poetry book Weirdos Like Me' and also in Not Just Anything.  Here, that poem is reproduced and colourfully illustrated with paintings from my Dreamscapes collection.
