    Young, Fierce and Proud

    Young, Fierce and Proud

    In her 2017 book The Gender Games, Juno Dawson writes: ‘I dare to dream of a world where people can dress, speak and behave how they want, free from mockery, derision, judgement, harassment and danger’.

    The fact that this seemingly simple dream is one that needs to be ‘dared’ highlights the plight faced by so many young – and not so young – people today. This year’s series of events for young adults takes a fearless and unflinching look at those issues which still hinder many from being accepted.

    From tackling racism and gender stereotypes, to celebrating diversity in all its forms, and empowering people to make their voices heard, these events offer exciting and challenging perspectives for all of us to heed – whether you’re sixteen or decades older.
