We are launching a brand new piece of groundbreaking research on today's hidden subjects. Join us on 2nd October at The Conduit London and join the conversation.

We will be launching our new report on 2nd October 6-7.15 at The Conduit, where Kathering Jennings (Director of Talking Taboos), Hannah Marcus (Trustee of Talking Taboos) and Sema Gornall (CEO of The Vavengers) will be in conversation unveiling the most stigmatised subjects of 2023

There will be a chance to carry on the conversations and network over drinks afterwards. Follow this link to sign up for a free ticket. Our mission at Talking Taboos is simple; to shine a light on topics which are ignored or hidden from public view, whose unspoken nature prevents people from seeking, or finding, they help they need.

We want to give voice and space to the taboo experiences people are bravely raising on social media, and highlight how their taboo nature is stopping these topics from receiving the coverage and attention they deserve.

In collaboration with, we curated a dataset of UK based online and social data in 2022 across Twitter, news, media, blogs and forums, and used AI tools to analyse this data, looking for emerging themes which are creating resonant conversations or outside impacts. Social and online media is a rich space for exploring taboo subjects since the combination of anonymity and community makes people willing to share experiences they might not in other contexts.
