Kavanagh Substack

Welcome to my blog. I write about law, society and LGBT politics (for some reason). I try to do it in an engaging way which dissects the unreality of modern debate.

I’m also a legal commentator and I also do occasional comment pieces in various publications or on TV. I trained as a barrister in 2003 and practiced in criminal law for 15 years before taking on other projects.

My main interest is the restoration of nuanced, accurate and civilised discussion regarding the present moment, particularly the question of how we dismantle the loud engines of unreason powering post-fact societies.

LGB politics, law and culture


Legal commentator and general "wrong type of gay". Writes about LGB matters, society, law, moral and social questions. Garrulous and wordy, guilty of the odd metaphor.
