Is London losing its cultural diversity to a rising tide of built-for-Instagram aesthetics?

Culture, Design, Featured, Lifestyle, photography, Society
Whether it’s an art exhibition, a new restaurant, or an inner-city festival, it appears that London’s cultural institutions must now cater to the like-seeking social media space first and foremost.

Genesis 1:28 In the first part of Childfree and Proud,  Kirsty, Rebi and Jena described their experiences when dealing with parents who do understand their desire to never have children and the complicated relationship the community has with traditional media. But this is only scraping the surface.   Kirsty, Jena and Rebi strongly believe that a big part of the social conditioning that pushes women towards motherhood has a lot to do with religion. “All of them”, Kirsty adds.    In Jena’s words: “religion is just a book full of rules on how to live your
