BEHIND SHAG.

A CREATIVE platform for

EVERYONE

Founded in 2017, SHAG is an independent movement of young creatives who want to change the way we speak about sex, gender, our bodies and health.

We are a creative platform where young adults express,

engage and educate one another in sexual health,

relationships and sexual politics.

Niamh Elain

Head of Socials

Originally from Wales, Niamh has been living in London since graduating uni. She is passionate about creating spaces where people can talk openly about sex and sexuality in a supportive, safe environment. When she is not pursuing that, she can be found posting on her poetry Instagram account, and hopes to eventually turn her poetic alter ego into a platform for wider conversation around PTSD. Otherwise, her interests include music, art and having baths.
