Jones v Trinidad & Tobago, with Jason Jones

Summary

This week, to celebrate Black LGBT History Month, Kieran and Ainsley are joined by Jason Jones, a ‘Tringlish’ LGBT activist and human rights defender born in Tinidad & Tobago but living in England. We spend an hour discussing his activism work, spending his twenties in London, challenging anti-LGBT intimacy laws in Trinidad. This episode was truly an education for both of us, and a real call to arms to get involved in our community.

It’s A Sin

Summary

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, you’ll have heard about It’s a Sin- the groundbreaking five-part drama by Russell T. Davies set in 1980s London during the height of the AIDs epidemic. Kieran and Ainsley take the time to discuss the show in-depth including a breakdown of all the major plot-points, we voice our misgivings about some of the characters and reflect on the impact AIDs and HIV has our lives as queer people today and fourty years ago. 

We also have a two for one spotlight in this episode. The first is Black and Gay Back in The Day, a digital community archive honouring & remembering Black queer life in Britain, as it was.⁣ Follow their instagram page here:  https://www.instagram.com/blackandgaybackintheday

The next feature is the late legendary DJ, musician and producer SOPHIE who tragically died last weekend. She was a true music pioneer and she will be sorely missed.
