This week I’ve decided to do that very emo thing where I promote being unapologetic about yourself and your weirdness, whether it’s about your social media, your dating life, your awkwardness, or whatever it is that makes you you. I realise this sounds like the inspirational bullshit you repost on Instagram, or pin on Pinterest, but this … More Being Unapologetic

Q&A with the East London Strippers Collective

On Monday I had the pleasure to try a marvellous two-course meal at the London Mondrian Hotel’s Sea Containers restaurant as part of my ticket for Damian Barr’s Literary Salon‘s seventh birthday, one of my favourite nights of the year so far.

Review of Bad Feminist, the New York Times bestseller asking feminists to cut themselves some slack

I saw a copy of Bad Feminist on every bookshelf and in every book store during my Couchsurfing trip in the USA. By the time I reached San Francisco I was basically bullied into buying it by a bunch of impressive reviews. Here’s what I thought of Roxane Gay‘s New York Times Bestseller.
