    World AIDS Day (Part 2) with Positive East

    This week we're serving up a double-episode to commemorate World AIDS Day, with three interviews plus some on-the-street chats with people, in a Bottoming first.
    In part 2 we hear from Andre, Postive East's Counselling Coordinator who tells about their holistic approach to helping those needing their services. We then visit Victoria Park, the site of the annual Red Run, hosted by Positive East, to hear from runners and supporters about why they committed to raising money for such an important cause. There are clips from LGBTQ+ people, allies, first-time runners and seasoned pros, as well as staff from Mildmay Mission, a charity that has been at the forefront of specialist HIV care and service provision since 1988, The Outside Project, London’s LGBTIQ+ homeless shelter and community centre, African Equality Foundation and many more.
    If you're listening to this episode first, be sure to check out part 1, where we speak to Calum from the National AIDS Trust, who tells us about the recent piece of research he authored, HIV and Mental Health and activist José Mejía Asserias, who shares his experiences with mental health services in Columbia and the UK, both before and after his diagnosis with HIV.

    We also catch up on the last few weeks, discuss how we've been and have a bit of a rant about the state of LGBT+ progress and trans equality in the UK, before discussing our favourite thing of the week #NotAnAd.

    Out and About with Black Queer Travel Guide and Checking-In

    Get your passports ready, as this week we're talking travelling! We speak to Lorraine Pinto, from Black Queer Travel Guide to hear about why it was set up, considerations when travelling as a Black queer person and their hopes for the future of the BQTG community. We then chat with Liam Rezende, co-founder of LGBTQ+ hospitality network, Checking-In who tells us about how the over-representation of LGBTQ+ people in the sector has its ups and downs, while bringing an interesting viewpoint on travelling to countries typically seen as hostile to queer people.
    As usual, we catch up about how we've been the last couple of weeks, before discussing our experiences travelling and continue with the new addition of our favourite thing of the week.

    It's Not You, It's (Monoga)Me with Låpsley

    This week we speak to singer-songwriter and absolute angel, Låpsley! In a Bottoming first, we talk sex and relationships (!), her feelings and experience with social media alongside her creative journey, returning to university to study again, and so much more. There's also an extra-special appearance from the superstar that is Peanut, Låpsley's doggy companion.
    Before that though, we catch up on how we've been recently, after both experiencing a little dip in our mental health, we talk our favourite horror films (it is Spooky Szn after all!) and our new regular item - our positive highlights of the week.
