Episode 10: These are our best bits (series finale)
Queer Liverpool is a podcast all about Liverpool's queer culture scene. This week co-hosts Emilia Bona and Josh Parry look back on an exciting first series and discuss future plans for our second series.
Episode 9: That time we banned gay conversion therapy (LGBT Action Plan Special)
We’re here, and we’re still queer. Today The Government announced a 75-point LGBT action plan, and amongst other things pledged to ban gay conversion ‘therapy’ in the UK. In this episode we look at what that means for us, and the part we played in shedding light on this 'abhorrent practice’.
Episode 8: I met my husband on Grindr
We said we wanted a Grindr wedding - and we got one! This week Josh is joined by Dr Adrian Harrop who downloaded the app for a hook-up, but ended up getting wed. Adrian also speaks out about why he turned down Channel 4’s opportunity to debate trans rights.
Episode 7: Gay Women in Politics with special guest Angela Eagle
Coming out is often a scary prospect - but it's a lot harder when you need to let the Prime Minister know before you do it... This week Emilia Bona is joined my MP for Wallasey Angela Eagle - the second ever out gay woman in Parliament. Angela talks about coming out to the nation, what it's like being a gay woman in Parliament and what LGBT issues she wants to see a future Labour government championing. Don't forget to rate, review and subscribe to the show wherever it is you're listening.
Episode 6: Pride
It's episode six and we've got the lads behind Pride on to talk all about this year's party. Host Emilia Bona is joined by co-founders John Bird and Andi Herring to chat about why Pride was founded, how it's evolved over the years and where it's going next - including an exciting hint about who's headlining this year's programme.
Episode five: Queer and disabled
We like to think of the queer scene as inclusive and accepting - but is everyone truly made to feel welcome? This week we're joined by Tammy Reynolds, a producer who also performs drag in her spare time. Tammy has a form of dwarfism and often finds queer venues hard to access - sometimes even impossible. Hosts Josh Parry and Emilia Bona host a discussion about what it's like to be queer and disabled in Liverpool. Klub Kids were contacted for comment, but at the time the podcast was...
