Women in Tune Festival

So this week, with all the fuss surrounding the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Andy did some digging to find out what it is and why it's still important even if it has been an internet hit!
The Women In Tune festival happened recently and we were lucky enough this week to report from it thanks to Sharon Harris who reports for us.
And Orange fans (yes I mean OITNB), Gaydio very kindly sent us their funny and hell interview with the wonderful Lea Delaria. 2015 fans, that's when series 3 will be out..

Bethany Black at Trans Pride

On this week's show, we catch up on Trans Pride which took place a few weeks ago. Our very own Cheryl was there to catch the atmosphere, as well as speaking to the one and Bethany Black. Plus a very special poem, to remind us of just why we have a need for a Trans Pride - courtesy of Alice Denny who not only wrote it, but very kindly read it for us too.

Plus those Short and Girlies are off on tour and, as our very own Mitch is one of them, we catch up with them back stage at the Arnolfini as well as talking to Mitch in the studio who gives us a lesson in improv comedy..

Matt Alber - LIVE

So to kick things off, the team were joined via live link up by our very own Matthew Tosh who was up at the Balloon Fiesta getting ready to fire the fireworks!
But how about it? Pretty much a WHOLE Matt Alber show! Yes, all the way from San Fransisco, Matt joined Andy and Emma and the team live in a the studio. They spoke about his start in music through to his recent trip to Russia of all places. And top it all off, Matt performed not one, not two but THREE songs live just for you. The best bit? Because he's unsigned he's given us very special permission to leave his music in the podcast. Why not return the favour and buy a track or two of his on iTunes...

And finally, while Andy maybe excited about the Matt Alber special next week, he's only gone and got engaged - congrats guys!

What's a Hate Crime?

This week the crew were talking all about the conversion of civil partnerships to marriages and the issues around it just being a "bit of paper", not an actual marriage certificate. While on air though, the story broke that the government have already listened to the outcry about this and are already reviewing the proposals. We'll keep you informed.

We also spoke about hate crime and the services available as part of SARI here in Bristol. Please, if you have any doubts or questions, talk to someone. We've included the link to the right, but you can also talk directly to the police or an LGBT police liaison officer if you concerned.

And Andy had a bit of a stark warning for those of you who use internet dating sites as he uncovers one of the latest scams to target the LGBT community.

Today on the show the whole thing went a bit...well...circus like! Yes, it's our build up to Pride so we kicked things off with a chat with Leatherwest at the Pride Film Festival.
Then, the team had a chat with Mike from Circomedia. Himself and a couple of friends will be entertaining you with some acrobats at the O2 just before the Freemasons perform live on stage.
And Steff recently spoke to a couple of the actors from "The Little Dog Laughed", a theatre production about the not so nice side of Broadway.
