The Black Vegetarian: No It’s Not A New Thing

Why Sex Education Is Leaving Black Students Behind

Talking about consent is weird. I can say that confidently; I’ve been doing it for more or less the past eight years, working with a handful of organisations who deliver conversations about consent in universities, schools and workplaces. And talking about consent with teenagers? Awkward and weird…
