This is poetry as peace cry, daring us to think differently about bodies, justice and the power of kindness for the health and transformation of a post-truth world.
Spoken word poet and radical dietitian Lucy Aphramor presents The Naked Dietitian – the missing conversation on health and OK-ness: clean eating, identity, privilege, queerness, community, resilience, taboo as if society and pleasure and history existed. A viscerally, spiritually, intellectually and emotionally compelling refusal to sign-up to a post-truth whitewash.

“graphic and cuts no corners. She is a poet of real substance.” Scotsgay
