Season 3 Episode 6: Sex, drugs, and vulnerability, in conversation with Knives

Join Alex in conversation with extra special guest Knives (@ghost.them), a London-based freelancer doing a mix of set design, modelling, and working in nightlife. In nightlife contexts, Knives works as a welfare officer for various club nights, including queer, kink, and private parties. Alex and Knives both work as welfare officers at Riposte, a queer techno night in London. Alex asks Knives about their journey into welfare work, about the functions of welfare officers in nightclubs, and the challenges that can arise when attempting to keep clubbers safe from sex/drug-related harms. Alex and Knives also reflect on the toll welfare work can take on the individuals who do it.
