Brook appoints Zoe Margolis – Girl With A One Track Mind – as ambassador
Young people’s sexual health charity, Brook, has announced that author and blogger Zoe Margolis – aka Abby Lee – has become an ambassador for the charity.
Zoe will be providing Brook with valuable public support and promoting the values she shares with the organisation. She will raise awareness of the importance of sexual health in a good sexual relationship and she will direct the younger readers who make contact with her through her book and blog to Brook, to help them negotiate fulfilling and healthy sexual relationships.
Brook’s Chief Executive, Simon Blake, said:
“Working with Zoe gives Brook an amazing opportunity to reach young people with open and honest advice on their sexual health and relationships. It also provides a platform from which to improve the debate on sex and relationships in this country, a debate which is so often hijacked by people determined to judge young people on the basis of myths and misinformation. Zoe’s passion to change this debate and her public influence amongst our target group is a strength that Brook is looking forward to drawing on.”
Zoe Margolis said:
“I believe that everyone has a right to choose sex that is fulfilling, consensual and safe. Young people deserve this too and I’m thrilled to be working with Brook to help make positive, healthy sexual relationships a reality for more people.”
