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.

April Ashley

On the show today, Emma and Andy broke the news that if you are in a civil partnership, from 10th December, you will be able to convert it to a marriage should you choose to do so. This also means that trans people will no longer have to divorce in order to obtain their gender recognition certificate. At last!!
And talking of trans issues, Cheryl Morgan visited the April Ashley Exhibition in Liverpool and reported back for us.
And Andy lost his boyfriend!! Well, actually he went away to Ireland with Sing Out Bristol to take part in the world's biggest gathering of LGBT choirs, the 4 yearly Various Voices.

For some life's a Drag!

This week we "drag" things up quite a lot.. Aled and James, aka Miss Beaver and Cherry Poppin joined the team live in the studio to talk about all things drag. From how they got into it to how huge the drag scene is in Bristol (plus of course the mention of them on the cabaret stage at Pride!), the conversation could have gone on a lot longer..
