Hey, this is Pierre and Julien!
My name is Julien and I am the founder at Earth Beneath our Feet.
Pierre, my husband, and I would like to thank you for stopping by.
Julien grew up in Normandy in France and moved to London for work more than 10yrs ago. London is home!
Pierre is South African and moved to London for some life experience and has been living in London ever since.
Have you ever been told that someone was surprised you were “normal”? It happened to us a few years ago after a French friend stayed with us for a few days. Her boyfriend at the time had clearly had little exposure to gay people; I have never seen someone so uncomfortable in my life. After the trip, my friend called me to apologise and explained that he was surprised; we were “normal people” and we had welcomed them very warmly.
Though our life in many aspects is very similar to the life of straight people, we still live in a world where we are reminded everyday that we are different.
I decided to create this blog to show what our life looks like as gay people; two married men who aim for a “normal” life filled with love, happiness and adventure. We will cover anything from travelling, going out, and how we organise our finances, to the biggest adventure of all: having a child!
We hope you will enjoy the blog and the photography, and look forward to exchanging with you! Don’t hesitate to give us a shout if you have any questions or would like to feature.
Have a wonderful day!
Pierre & Julien
