DJ and writer Stewart Who? guest hosts while Rosie is away.

Le Strange and Callum Mac of comedy troupe The Sex Shells pop into the studio.They chat about the challenges and joys of queer live comedy and their forthcoming shows at The Glory and Latitude Festival. James Waygood reviews Odd Shaped Balls, a play about the issues around ‘coming out’ while representing the country in a national sport – in this case rugby. The critically acclaimed production is at the Old Red Lion Theatre until 25 June.
Rosie hears from poet and theatre-maker Nick Field ahead of his performance alongside Keith Jarrett and Ali Brumfitt at Queer’Say at Hackney Attic – now rescheduled for 30 September. Sarah Humphreys, chair of East London Out Project, tells us about their forthcoming Pride events and reviews clips of Jack Rooke and Sophia Walker recorded at a special mini-Queer’Say event they supported at Idea Store Whitechapel. Writer John Fitzpatrick discusses his play This Much (or Act of Violence Towards the Institution of Marriage) which was a hit at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe and runs at Soho Theatre until 2 July. LGBTQ Arts editor Amie Taylor joins them in conversation about this piece which examines how we define ourselves through relationships.
Highlights of Queer’Say recorded at Tate Modern on 22 May. Rosie introduced live spoken word sets from Richard Scott, Rachel Mars and Dean Atta before interviewing them onstage. This event was supported by Southwark LGBT network and Arts Council England and presented in partnership with Apples and Snakes.
Rosie speaks to playwright Leigh Douglas about her contemporary coming-of-age fairytale Waking Beauty, which takes a fresh look through a feminist, queer lens at some traditional stories. Film maker Aaron Brooker discusses his film Uncle Howard ahead of a screening at the East End Film Festival and poet Helen Oakleigh performs live.
