The Evil Tyrant is gone and the world has let out a collective sigh of breath. What else can we let go of that’s not serving us? Nadine Reid looks at problematic faves, Shannon Patterson asks the people of the Republic to let go of the idea of the border and get behind Northern Activists, and the Black Women’s Liberation Playlist will encourage you to lose your inhibitions. Fanya O’Donoghue’s recipe might have you releasing a notch on the belt and while we’re chatting downstairs, Gillian Kenny discovers that we’re all sodomites. And after you’ve got through all that, close your eyes and let Taryn de Vere tell you a story.
