October guest bloggers
Josephine Tsui // 30 September 2014
It’s my favourite time of the year. The leaves are changing colours, the familiar crunch beneath my shoes, the temperature is still hovering between warm and comfortable.
This month we have two guest bloggers:
Holly Grigg-Spall is a writer and women’s health activist. Her book ‘Sweetening the Pill or How We Got Hooked on Hormonal Birth Control’ is available now. It was recently optioned by Ricki Lake for a feature documentary to be released next year. She also writes weekly for LadyClever.com.
Liam is a twenty-something man recently relocated to Manchester from Yorkshire. He is chronically physically and mentally unwell and often prone to remarking that “Being too ill to work is a full time job in itself”. When he’s not wrangling with doctors, social workers, therapists, carers, benefits forms and other disability-related life admin, he blogs and tweets as YetAnotherLefty and is repeatedly surprised that people are interested in what he has to say.
Liam is White, Jewish, Disabled, Bisexual, Autistic and Trans. One thing he loves most about online spaces is the opportunity to be openly all of those things at once.
Please give a warm autumn welcome to our guest bloggers.
