About me


I’m Ruth: a postgraduate researcher based at the University of Warwick, writer, activist, promoter and DJ. This blog is an experiment in bringing that all together in one place. I regularly post links to events I’m involved with and articles I’ve written.

My PhD project entails qualitative research into UK-centred discourses of trans health on the Internet. I am based in the Sociology department.

Freelance DJ

Rock music is my speciality, but I’m perfectly happy to tackle other genres! I’ve been hired to DJ at LGBT nights, feminist discos, weddings, parties and fundraisers. Notable events have included Reclaim The Night (London, Manchester) Women’s Aid National Conference (Coventry), NUS Women’s Conference (Coventry, Oxford, York, Bradford), Love Music Hate Homophobia (Birmingham, Coventry, Sheffield).


I perform on bass and/or vocals in a number of punk, rock and metal bands.
