Meet Savannah Knoop, the real JT LeRoy played by Kristen Stewart

Genderfluid artist Savannah Knoop became the centre of one of America’s greatest hoaxes when her sister-in-law wrote a book, J. T. LeRoy, about an abused teenage boy and asked Knoop to pretend to be him to the media.

A candidate for Nigel Farage’s new Brexit Party, Alka Sehgal Cuthbert, is a critic of LGBT+ inclusive education programmes.
