Two Kinds of Protest: The Pros and Cons of Each



Hello everyone, over the last two weeks I attended two different protests: one in Millenium Square Leeds, and one from the comfort of my own bed. A complete newbie to the activism scene, and I mean proactive activism, not including sharing instagram posts or retweeting, I had NO IDEA virtual protests were even a thing. Attending this virtual protest, followed by a ... physical protest? A protest protest? You get what I mean, gave me a good idea of the differences between the two types. Whether virtual protests remain commonplace within activism I'm not sure, as the one I "attended" was largely in response to the ongoing fears about the risk of spreading Covid-19 among demonstrators. Nontheless I believe virtual protests are a fantastic thing that should remain alongside regular protests.

Queer: A Graphic History [Book Review]



Hello everyone! Now that I have far too much time on my hands I've wanted to return to the world of writing book reviews. Given that we are also reaching the end of the first week of Pride, I figured I'd share with you one of my new LGBT+ reads.

It's Time to Be a Better Ally.




Initially, I wasn't entirely sure what to write about in response to the tragic death of George Floyd, and the subsequent outcry in America and across the world. Perhaps I could talk about white privilege, and what it means, or perhaps about the history of systematic racism in both America and the UK. But then I realised, these things can be found in abundance online, but when I scroll through instagram and twitter, resources still aren't as accessible.
