19:00 to 21:00. Come and see Lucy Aphramor Quaker, poet, dietition Can the liberation of one award-winning self-harming poet-dietitian be connected to all liberation? A powerful look at one woman's story of living through a traumatised body in the brutal delusion of neoliberalism. Sexy and risky, visceral and lyrical, there is no tale of woe, no stoicism and a blunt refusal of single-story stereotype. Where else will you find a health professional who talks about shame, sex, self-harm and won't shut up about racism and fat-shaming being unrecognised health hazards? Details at London Quakers Events.
