‘The Ins and Outs of Consent’ a digital zine that delves deeper into the nuances and intersections of consent from multiple perspectives. Brought to you by gal-dem, The Face and BBC in response to and in praise of the ground-breaking series I May Destroy You, created by Bafta winner Michaela Coel. We worked with 6 expert contributors from our community to voice the grey areas left out of traditional and mainstream conversations around sex-education. The zine is split into 7 sections: Intro + A-Z of consent (glossary terms); Polyamory - Ruby Rare; Intoxication - Rukiat Ashawe; Kink - Aisha Mirza; Gender Identity - Sade Alexis as told to Fope Olaleye; Queerness -Tanya Compas; Resources - Oloni.

The whole zine is interlaced with video clips and pictures from the show, as well as expert voices from the contributors communities on each of the topics covered. The extra voices give a breadth and depth of perspectives, producing a really multilayered and multifaceted resource.

We won gold at The Campaign Media awards 2021 -
