How we helped topless climate campaigner, Laura Amherst, raise thousands to save the planet
By protesting topless to raise awareness of the climate emergency, Laura Amherst is promoting several very important messages.
When we heard about Laura and her work with Extinction Rebellion, we were very keen to help her get her message out there. What makes Laura different from most people, is her dedication, to not only the planet but all those living on it. She is first and foremost known as a climate protester but she also supports animal rights, advocates veganism and is passionate about body confidence and ending the body-shaming of women. We reached out to Laura and saw on her social media that she had been contemplating starting an OnlyFans account, something we know a lot about.
Unfortunately, Laura had been turned off of the idea of selling photos and videos online due to some of the negative connotations surrounding the industry. Being a public figure, and someone who attracts a lot of trolls, it was natural to be wary of attracting negative attention from those who are happy to criticise someone online, even when they are trying to help people. However, after we were able to talk with Laura about different ways of selling content, a variety of strategies on how to operate and showing Laura just how much she could earn for the worthy causes she is passionate about, she decided to give it a try.
Laura used our free survey tool to find the best sites to sell on based on the content she wanted to make and how she wanted to have people support her. We then helped and advised her on getting her OnlyFans account approved.

We asked Laura if she would spare some time to help others understand her message, why she protests in the way she does and how it’s important to raise awareness and funds to help people understand the importance of saving our planet. She kindly agreed to share her time with us and we sent her our burning questions so we could share her responses here.
Hi Laura, thanks for taking the time to answer our questions.
First of all, can you please tell us what motivates you to give up your free time to protest?
What was it that made you decide to protest topless?
I was meant to go to an event in Brighton called “free the nipple” where a group of ladies get together and go topless. This is to promote body positivity and less stigma around the female breast. I thought it would be a good idea to incorporate that into the climate protests, to get more attention and raise awareness. It has worked brilliantly, as I have had great media opportunities and a chance to put my heartfelt and well researched message out there.
Thanks for sharing you exerance and thank you for working so hard to educate people about the dangers of the climate emergancy!

UPDATE: Since we wrote this article, Laura has earned so much on OnlyFans that she has decided to now focus her time on her protest work and setting up her own charity so will be closing her account soon. We have removed links to her OnlyFans, but left the links to her Instagram so readers can see her latest updates and will add links to her charity when it launches.
