189: Ryan O'Connell | Part 1

Season 6, Ep. 189

When Ryan O’Connell came on the podcast last time we had a blast, and I knew we had so much more to talk about. So here he is. Not satisfied with creating Netflix smash hit ‘Special’, starring in (and writing) the new ‘Queer As Folk’, he’s gone and written a brilliant novel. This episode is full of Ryan’s trademark honesty and wit, as we cover why I’m clearly lying about something all gay men do, what your slutty years can do for you, and we find out what did Ryan learn he is too famous to do in public? Click play for all this and more, plus you can buy Ryan’s hilarious book ‘Just By Looking At Him’ here

198: Black and Gay, Back In The Day with Marc Thompson | Part 1

Season 1, Ep. 198
Today we are chatting to certified national treasure of the queer community, Marc Thompson. Marc has set up @blackandgaybackintheday, a digital archive and podcast which celebrates black queer life and its history. Today we are delving deep into the archive, discussing what it was like growing up as a black queer man in Brixton in the 1980’s, why the Pet Shop Boys are the ultimate trailblazers of house music and why it’s important we find out who exactly was sniffing poppers at the back of Heaven nightclub in 1986.  You can listen to Marc’s playlist “It’s A Sin – The Black Album” here. - ‘These are the songs that Black queer people loved, listened to and danced to in the days of the HIV epidemic and they all left their mark on the Black queer scene at the time.’You can listen to the Black and Gay, Back in the Day podcast here and visit the instagram page here.Adam Serwer essay "The Cruelty is the Point" (https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2018/10/the-cruelty-is-the-point/572104/). Survey of British social attitudes (https://www.theguardian.com/society/2022/sep/22/majority-of-uk-public-agree-with-liberal-views-on-race-and-sexual-identity-annual-poll) revealed that the UK population largely has liberal views and those taking "anti-woke" positions on "culture wars" issues are firmly in the minority.📍 Homo Sapiens Spotify Playlist📍H O M O S A P I E N S P O D C A S T📍NEW EPISODE Every Thursday📍Come play with us on socials Facebook & Instagram @Homosapiens📍Email us: Hello@homosapienspodcast.com📍Podcast Host: Acast
