    1000 Days

    1000 Days

    It's 1000 days since the U.K government promised to ban conversion therapy but still hasn't. James and Dan reflect on their BBC Radio 1 documentary 'Tell It: From Gay to NonGay' and chat to the co-director of CURED, a BFI Flare Festival documentary about the activists who brought about a 1973 victory in the movement for LGBTQ equality: the American Psychiatric Association’s decision to remove homosexuality from its manual of mental illnesses. Bennett Singer's movie perfectly explains that to 'cure' LGBQ+ people, we only need to be accepted.


    So why do Church and religion play a huge role in perpetuating stigma, discrimination and physical harm towards people because of their sexuality?


    We witnessed this trauma when we interviewed former Christian singer Vicky Beeching during our series about gay conversion therapy, 'Tell It: From Gay to NonGay?' and thanks to BBC Sounds, you can hear an incredibly moving preview from our series in today's episode.


    It's not an overly triggering episode, but we will issue a low-key trigger warning here just to be safe.


    Email us about 'conversion therapy' at any time, we're here to help - us@gaynongay.com

    Juno Dawson

    We're celebrating #InternationalWomensDay with esteemed author Juno Dawson.

    Her new book 'What’s The T' is an exploration of what it means to be a young transgender and/or non-binary person in the 21st Century, a go-to handbook for the young trans and/or non-binary queer community and their allies.

Worked for me

As a mom of two gays and a nongay, with early indoctrination as conservative Christian, and subsequently being raised by the 12 step program, Dan and James and all their ups and downs and all over the places, along with their exceptional guests, have helped me laugh, gain perspective and make sense of it all. THANKS.

Inclusive

I appreciate listening to this podcast. It is great how they enjoy talking with each other. And they don’t take themselves too seriously.
