Library Manager Stefan Dickers offers an insight into the Lesbian and Gay Newsmedia Archive (LAGNA), a national archive of press cuttings, campaigning material and other resources relating to LGBT communities.

Culture reporter Laura Macdougall reviews the film ‘Concussion’ by Stacie Passon. It tells the story of a lesbian, whose unfulfilled relationship to her wife led her to become a prostitute for other women.

On the phone from Berlin, Brendan Nash tells us about the altered David Bowie exhibition ‘Bowie is…’ from the V&A, which is currently in Berlin. It has now an extended Berlin section due to Bowie’s strong relationship to that city.


10th June

Rosie chats to performer Matt Tedford, whose drag comedy musical ‘Margaret Thatcher – Queen of Soho’ presents the former prime minister as a cabaret superstar in 1980s Soho. The show is part of the Edinburgh Fringe and runs from 31st July to 24th August.

Rosie welcomes Robyn Exton, founder of lesbian dating app Dattch, which was produced in 2012 in the UK and has recently been launched in the US. Different to other apps it is based on the Pinterest model and ensures a safe environment for its users.

Author Clare Lydon presents her novel ‘London Calling’. Set in modern-day London, it follows the story of 32-year-old Jess Sharp, whose life is in pieces when she meets her true love.

Ruth Calkin gives an insight into the new musical puppetry show ‘Moominsummer Madness’, in which she plays Moominmama. The piece coincides with the 100th anniversary of Moomin-creator Tove Jansson and runs at the Polka Theatre from 11th June to 16th August.


24th June

Rosie talks to Elizabeth Wilson about her book ‘Love Game’, which looks at the history of tennis from Victorian times until today and reveals its subversiveness.

Musician Janette Mason tells us about her album ‘D’Ranged’. It is released at the beginning of August and was featured on the show, when it was still in the making.

Choreographer Phil Aiden presents the musical comedy ‘Bathhouse – The Musical’, which runs at the Above the Stag Theatre from 18th June to 20th July.

We hear from Laura MacDougall, who speaks to Andrew Solomon, author of ‘Far from the Tree’. The book won last year’s Green Carnation Prize and portrays how parents deal with their children who have a different identity to their own.


1st July

In an hour-long special Out In South London broadcasts the highlights of the first evening of ‘Queer’Say’, a showcase for queer spoken word hosted by Rosie Wilby, which was part of the Wandsworth Arts Festival. Joelle Taylor, Sophia Blackwell and Keith Jarrett shared the stage at the Bedford Pub on 8th May.


From 8th July until September we are on a summer break.
