This week on Yeah Nah Pasaran! we talk to Simon Hunt (Facebook /// Twitter /// YouTube). Sometimes AKA ‘Pauline Pantsdown’, Simon has a long history as an activist, artist and raconteur. We spoke to him about Posie Parker’s recent tour, anti-trans and homophobic sentiment, art and activism, and how humour can be utilised in order to subvert social prejudice, then and now.
