Radio AvA is back with a shockingly Christmas-free show. Featuring:

A live interview with Chryssy, a member of the Bent Bars Collective who organise the Bent Bars project- a solidarity and mutual support letter-writing project for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, gender-variant, intersex, and queer prisoners in Britain, informed by prisoner experience, involvement and the belief that prisons are not effective in holding people to account for their actions, healing harms or preventing violence. http://www.bentbarsproject.org
