The renowned awards, which are now in their 27th year, celebrate pioneers across the field of sexuality and sexual wellness.
Further to Little Leaf’s own nomination, their client, menopause and self-love advocate, Lou Featherstone has also been nominated. Lou, aka LuInLuland, who is a finalist in the “Activist of the Year” category, is making strides in the self-love space where she offers accessible sex education across all her social media platforms, and via her successful USA ‘Self Love Revolution Tour’ which is coming to the UK soon.
Kathryn Byberg, CEO and Founder of Little Leaf Agency, said: “We are honoured that Little Leaf has been selected as a finalist for the Publicist of the Year award. The team and I love working with ethical and sustainable sexual wellness brands and have helped many well-established and also start-up brands get the recognition they deserve. We have the privilege of working with leaders like industry pioneers FUN FACTORY and newcomer Bloomi who is dominating in mainstream channels like Target and Saks, to start-ups like sustainable British sex toy brand Love Not War and vulvovaginal care brand Momotaro Apotheca.”
“The nomination alone is a huge compliment to the agency, which has been running for just under two years, and to be recognised amongst some truly amazing, trailblazer publicists, like the previous winner, renowned sex educator, and writer, Gigi Engle, is such a testament to the work my team does and I’m so proud of them all. We can’t wait to attend the awards and celebrate with other like-minded people and businesses who share in our passion for pushing the sexual wellness industry into the mainstream.”
Little Leaf Agency, which started in 2020, has since grown and developed to a place where it now houses an established roster of seven clients and counting, some of which have been at the agency since its inception.
The 27th Annual Sexual Freedom Awards will be hosted at Bush Hall, Shepherds Bush, London, on Thursday 4th May with any proceeds of the night going to the Outsiders Trust – a charity that supports disabled people in their sexual freedom and expression.
Returning to host the evening will be podcast presenter and Hot Octopuss’ Creative Director, Disability and Inclusion Lead Kelly Gordon.
