In this week’s podcast episode we’re celebrating the LGBTQ+ community in Wales and abroad. We speak to Gareth Smith, PhD student at Cardiff University and contributor to the Wales Arts Review, about the newest season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. We discuss how the UK Drag Race highlights the intersection of class, gender and sexual identity, how the season has improved its representation of the UK and the Welsh Queen we are rooting for.
In the second segment, we chat about the latest drama from Channel 4, It’s a Sin, and we take a look back at the life and works of artist Cedric Morris.
Finally, we’ll be letting you know about events across Wales that you’ll definitely want to check out our What’s on, Wales? Segment.
