    How can you be single, queer and happy?

    How can you be single, queer and happy?

    How can you be single, queer and happy?


    Growing up in the 90’s things seemed pretty simple. 
     
    You get to your mid-twenties, find someone you are attracted to who lives in close proximity, get married and live a happy life. But Martin could never relate to any of this because he is gay.
     
    Cut to now, aged 32 and a little jaded by love – he has no desire for marriage or a partner. But can he still be happy?
     
    On today's episode of #QueerAF, he goes on a journey to find happiness and comfort in being single...

    Access All Rainbows: Being LGBT+ and Disabled – Live Episode

    Access All Rainbows: Being LGBT+ and Disabled – Live Episode

    Recorded live as part of National Student Pride, at the University of Westminster in collaboration with the university's Creative Enterprise Centre: We present Access All Rainbows.


    Join our conversation about being LGBT+ and disabled, considering; Hidden disabilities, access, perceptions on ability and, support in relationships.


    The Speakers:


    Jamie Wareham – University of Westminster Alumni Jamie Wareham is the Head of Digital Production at Attitude Magazine and host of National Student Pride's podcast #QueerAF. Jamie recently spoke at the inaugural WINC festival about coming to terms with his hidden disability, and how that has become part of his wider queer intersectional identity.


    Callum Dziedzic –Callum is a script editor working in TV drama. He is an alumnus of the University of York’s Film and Television Production degree and Channel 4’s Production Training Scheme. Since graduating he has assistant script edited Ackley Bridge at The Forge, and Giri/Haji, a contemporary bi-lingual thriller produced by Sister Pictures for BBC Two and Netflix. More recently, Callum has developed an international nuclear armament thriller with Pulse Films and Netflix and has returned to Sister Pictures to script edit an upcoming comedy drama for BBC Two.
    Callum was born with Tetraplegic Cerebral Palsy and uses a manual wheelchair for mobility. To him, the act of storytelling in film and television is intrinsically inclusive and universal. Ultimately, a great story can come from or captivate anyone, and it should not just be regarded as a means of self-expression but also as a way of levelling the playing field for all.


    Char Bailey - Char is a celebrity life coach, acclaimed writer and speaker. Black, lesbian and autistic woman, she is the co-host of the Qmmunity podcast and well-being ambassador for UK Black Pride

    Did you get a haircut to work out how to be queer too?

    Does Rosa need to get a queer haircut to feel part of the community? 


    That’s what she explores in her university town of Bristol this week on #QueerAF. 


    Meeting the towns local queer hairdresser who has been helping trans, non-binary and LGBT+ people feel more at home with the identity they want to show to the world. 


    And despite Rosa’s love for her femme, long hair. She wonders after seeing so many people get empowered by having the chop – whether she wants to or should have a queer haircut too.

    Young, vulnerable and new to a big city: I became the target of an online predator

    Young, vulnerable and new to a big city: I became the target of an online predator

    Young, vulnerable and new to a big city: I became the target of an online predator


    Five years ago, Rory was drugged and sexually assaulted by two men, who I met while using Grindr. 


    Young, vulnerable and new to a big city – growing up without any LGBTQ inclusive sex education in school – I became the target for an online predator.


    It’s been difficult coming to terms with this attack, but five years on later Rory is telling his story on his own terms on the #QueerAF podcast, in the hope it might inspire others to be empowered by it.


    With thanks to Rory Boyle, Survivors UK, Stay Brave and David Stuart for support for this episode.
