Iago: Part Two

Season 1, Ep. 3

Adam chats with Iago in our third episode.  Please note, Iago's episode has been divided into two parts. This is part two. Please make sure to listen to part one first to hear his full story. 


Iago was born in Iraq and spent his adolescent years in Saudi Arabia. Despite intense pressure to conform, Iago has strived to express himself, his true self, his whole life. He has faced obstacles that would have pushed others over the edge. Instead, he has turned to the arts, and his extraordinary resourcefulness, to create a different life. 


Note that Iago's story deals with some heavy topics and contains course language. If you or anyone you know needs help or this episode brings up something for you, you can contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 or a range of other services outlined at
