Emergency contraception will now be made available at festivals
How is this not a thing already? This summer, travelling pharmacy The Medicine Man will be on hand to give out a range of emergency contraception, including the morning-after pill, without a prescription at festivals across the UK, including Bestival, Rize and Leeds Festival. About time, tbh.

Cynthia Nixon attacks Governor Cuomo’s questionable at best political track record on abortion
This week Governor Cuomo released a series of digital ads taking aim at Republican lawmakers who have failed to adequately protect abortion rights or push through the Reproductive Health Act, a bill that would protect abortion rights through state law. But it’s too little too late, according to favourite-SATC member turned renegade politician Cynthia Nixon. “He had two terms to get this legislation through and he never made it a priority”, a spokesperson for the Nixon campaign told Broadly. “Now in an election year when this is a hot topic, he’s trying to present himself as a champion of women’s rights.” Go off, sis.
Pussy Riot have been sentenced to 15 days administrative arrest for their World Cup invasion
The heady excitement and positivity and the football’s coming home chants have all turned into something much more sinister now the World Cup is over, as the four protestors, part of the Pussy Riot collective, who staged a pitch invasion during the Croatia France final this weekend have been sentenced to 15 days in jail.

They’ve also been banned from attending sports events for three years.
Fans will be invited to create designs for Lil Peep’s posthumous clothing line
He may have tragically passed away in November 2017, but Lil Peep’s legacy continues to live on through his fan and his clothing line, No Smok!ing. The line, which was originally due to launch in early 2018, was pushed back after Peep’s death, but will now go to production next month to honour his life. Along with selling exclusive merch, the No Smok!ing line will also accept submissions of fan-made apparel to honour his legacy, with fans able to submit their ideas and designs at The Hyv.com from 1 -- 8 August, and receiving a percentage of the profits from their pieces.
