At the height of Pride month, join the team at the Bylines Network podcast, as we discuss the history and state of LGBTQ+ rights in the UK and across the world. Hosts Chris Davis from Brighton and our very own Connor Lamb from Newcastle share their own experiences.
The podcast also includes a fascinating and interesting interview with Lloyd Russell-Moyle, MP for Brighton Kemptown.
The podcast takes a look at what Pride has become in 2021, its commercialisation and “pride-washing”. This is something that many companies do. They make statements supportive of LGBTQ+ rights while acting against queer interests around the world.
Connor, Chris and Russell discuss what Pride means to them and Russell talks about the government’s plan for reforming the Gender Recognition Act.
