190: Glyn Fussell | Part 2

Season 6, Ep. 190

This week I am joined by none other than Glyn Fussell and boy did we hit it off. Glyn is the founder of two absolute bedrocks of queer culture: the club night Sink The Pink and the festival Mighty Hoopla and I don’t know where we’d all be without him. I hear about what happens when you unite so many queer icons under one roof for the biggest LGBTQ+ music festival in Europe, which noughties icon was breaking in to fellow popstars dressing rooms, and why George Michael had to stop going on night’s out with Bananarama. You can buy Glyn’s book Sink The Pinks Manifesto For Misfits, Be Different, Be Free, Be You 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
