I've been very busy over the last few months and I'm proud to finally announce what I've been working on: Sex Appeal
- a fund raising comedy night taking place in January at London's Bloomsbury Theatre
, on behalf of the young people's sexual health charity Brook
Regular readers will know that I'm an ambassador for Brook, and that I am passionate about the wonderful work that they do. So it gives me great pride and joy to be organising this event for them; with the line-up
we have, it looks set to be a superb night. (If you want to attend, get your tickets quickly
: we launched the event today and they're selling very fast!)
As well as supporting Brook, I also hope that this event will raise awareness about the state of sex education in UK schools and how certain members of the government seem set on undermining the quality and content of this. In addition, we're currently facing a very real threat to women's access to abortion, and I want to draw attention to this and help prevent further attacks on reproductive rights. I have written about this in today's Guardian
and I do hope that by bringing these issues to the fore, we can get people mobilised, and ensure that when the battles come - and they surely will - we will be ready to fight the sex-positive corner.
Bring it on.
