SEASON 2 | EPISODE 14   
CHARLIE CRAGGS
WITH LONDON TRANS+ PRIDE 🅴




This June, Bottoming is bringing you weekly episodes for their Pride Month Series! For week 2, they chat to author, activist and soon-to-be presenter, founder of Nail Transphobia, Charlie Craggs. After fangirling for a moment, they chat to Charlie about her experiences with depression, loneliness and self-acceptance, in one of their most open and raw interviews to date. They also take the opportunity to discuss the state of play for trans rights in the UK and urge listeners to show solidarity for trans people under attack in our country and around the world today.

They then hear from Hannah at London Trans+ Pride, to hear a little bit more about this year's event on 26th June and how people can get involved and show their support.

The boys also talk more about working with Jo Malone London this Pride Month, guest-editing internal communications for their employees throughout the month, and consulting on charities for Jo Malone London to support; the second being Gendered Intelligence!

**Please note this interview contains conversations about suicide and Grenfell Tower.**

GI works to increase the understanding of gender diversity and improve the lives of trans people. They are a trans-led and trans-involving grass roots organisation with a focus on three main areas; professional and educational services, youth and communities services, and public engagement. They believe that it’s important to nurture and develop gendered intelligence in the individual, for the purpose of promoting freedom of expression and a world in which a broad spectrum of identities can co-exist.
