socially [un]acceptable

Laura Desmond tells us;

"#MeToo has been around for almost two years now. We’ve all heard the stories, and many of us have told our own too.

In this overly connected age, discourse around consent has sparked powerful conversations worldwide.But what’s next? How do we drive this discourse forward?My stage show socially [un]acceptable leads the way in shifting the discussion by analysing social ’norms’ which allow sexual assault to occur. By sharing personal stories and self evaluations, I challenge audience members to consider their past actions, motives and justifications.It’s time to not only acknowledge some of the terrible assaults that have gone unnoticed or unannounced in everyday instances and move our culture forward into a new age of sex positive, empathetic conversation around consent and sex.

I will be performing socially [un]acceptable as part of the Greater Manchester Fringe at The Kings Arms in Salford at 6:00pm from the 24th of July to the 26th of July.

I am honoured to have an opportunity to perform in a city which has such a rich history of supporting and fostering strong women, and I am excited to share my stories with other survivors and allies."
