The Sleepover Club: Is Vulnerability A Trap?

Are you scared of vulnerability? Of truly exposing yourself and being seen by others? Or do you see it as a positive thing? A state of being that allows us to have meaningful human experiences?

We're unpacking whether vulnerability is really all it's cracked up to be or if vulnerability causes more harm than good, especially for marginalised people.
