Welcome to LiberateYourself!

The aim of this website is to decrease ignorance, prejudice and stigma; we believe that the best way to do this is through education. If you’ve grown up being told one thing and are surrounded by quite similar individuals who all think in the same way it’s sometimes hard to understand others’ experiences. This website provides you with the space to explore a huge variety of lifestyles and people from the comfort and safety of your own computer: it is as interactive as possible and gives you the opportunity to engage and ask questions about issues that maybe you’d never thought about before or just dismissed as not being important or relevant to you.

Please feel free to potter about the website in your own time and space and engage with the various debates.

Some pages on this website may be triggering to you depending on your personal life experiences. We strive to put warnings on any page which contains triggering material. If we have missed anything, we would very much appreciate being contacted about it to make sure our website is accessible as possible for people who need trigger warnings.

I would like to offer my sincerest gratitude to all those who have been willing to share their stories, experiences and thoughts for the website; with special thanks going to Sophie Koonin who made the website a reality (and very pretty!) and Jennie O’Hara for coming to the rescue when I needed some help.
