Woman's Hour & Homotopia

in the studio

Next Wednesday in Liverpool the ravaj will be taking part in the Homotopia festival panel "You Gotta Have Faith". In advance of that event, the female panellists were invited to speak during Woman's Hour on BBC Radio 4 yesterday morning. Jenni Murray was moderating from the Salford studio. Nadia (in for Rose) was in Birmingham. Vicky Beeching and I were at Western House in London. You can hear our spot here.

I was a bit disappointed with Dame Jenni, or at least with those that wrote her script. She seemed more interested in our suffering and rejection by our faith groups rather than the work we are doing to foster change and develop understanding in our communities. However, it was a great introduction to the subject, which we will discuss further, and with Peter Tatchell, on the stage of the Unity Theatre next week. Feel free to stop by if you're in the neighbourhood.
