I first worked with Yas on a campaign to bring sex education into the 21st century, and have continued to keep in touch and collaborate since. Yas is a strategic thinker, brilliant writer and full of creative ideas

Yas is an extremely brave artist, pushing boundaries about how we talk about and view queerness and gender. They are a tough campaigner, a gentle and thoughtful facilitator, a force to look out for. You can feel how deeply they care

Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, Executive director of Kaleidoscope Trust and UK Black Pride
