Taboo talks

What did Dolly Doctor teach you as a teenager? Have you been googling your grey areas instead of talking to friends or loved ones? If we cannot speak about taboo topics, then how else will we learn?

Audiences are invited to submit questions anonymously, via a text message or handwritten note, for our taboo trained panel of representatives from Youth Pride Network (YPN), SHQ, Smut Club and Magenta.
