My 1st Guardian byline!

Well, it’s happened! I’m really grateful that my first article for a national newspaper is about IT: Chapter Two. I’ve argued why it was right for the film to show the homophobic attack and murder of Adrian Mellon at the start, and why the update to Richie’s character is appropriate. This isn’t just because of the story, but because of the way censorship law works in the UK and the US and the reasoning behind it. It’s what I teach about at university and I’m determined folks should know. Pretending violence doesn’t happen does not stop it happening. I am living proof of that. Read it here.
