Veganism is so much more than what we eat. It’s about striving to live an ethical life in a profoundly unethical world.

What does veganism have to do with wider struggles for social justice - feminism, LGBTQ+ politics, anti-racism, environmentalism? Is being vegan difficult or is it now easier than ever? What are the dangers and irresistible pleasures of living a vegan life.

C. Lou Hamilton dives deep into the heart of these questions at a special coffee morning launch of their book Veganism, Sex and Politics : Tales of Danger & Pleasure! Join us for a lively discussion of the book, an informal chat, a cuppa & some vegan snacks.

“This provocative and imaginative book challenges us to re-examine our usual responses to questions of consumption, ethics, and representation. After all, veganism is not something we can arrive at; it is an ongoing process.” Rasmus R. Simonsen, editor of Critical Perspectives on Veganism.

C. Lou Hamilton is a writer and independent scholar. She has published academic articles and books on feminism, the history of sexuality, oral history, revolutionary movements, sex work and human-animal relations. As an activist she has been involved for many years in feminist and queer collectives, the sex worker rights movement and environmentalism. She lives in London.
