One Year On

On 29th October 2017, we launched Alphabet Soup. By this point, countless hours (and multiple degree projects) had gone into making the site. Of course, the work didn’t stop there.

In the last year, we have been so proud to see the site go from strength to strength. We have met with some incredible people and organisations. We have created a collection of stories we are proud to showcase. We have started conversations and changed minds. Not a day goes by where Alphabet Soup does not feature in our lives, and we couldn’t be happier. We thought we would take this opportunity, one year on, to explore some of our favourite events and articles from the last year of Alphabet Soup’s life.

In February, we featured poet Jack Tinmouth to celebrate LGBT History Month. He wrote Touch, Hangover, and the multi-part Notes as Boy.

We met Stuart Milk, nephew of activist and politician Harvey Milk. How he made us feel was indescribable, but we tried anyway in this article about it.

Jom produced one of our favourite pieces of content when they submitted their audio essay to us.

As our co-founder Nathan’s last hurrah at Bath Spa University, the place where this all began, they hosted the workshop Gender Talks. This was a conversation-led event, and we are hoping to run similar ones in the future. Join our mailing list to stay informed.

In June, WeTransfer got in contact asking to feature us on their Pride Month article on WePresent. We are thrilled with the piece they wrote about us and delighted to see our name with four other fantastic projects.

We are endlessly thankful to those who have followed along with us so far. Thank you to contributing your articles, to engaging on social media, and above all for being our champions.

Here’s to the next year. We’d love to have you along for the journey. Contribute, donate, and keep exploring.

The Alphabet Soup team
