Daring to be different with Hannah Bardell MP SNP

Published: June 24, 2022, 7:39 a.m.

Daring to be different, I chat with Hannah Bardell, a Scottish politician who served as a Member of Parliament for Livingston since 2015. She is a member of the Scottish National Party and was the spokesperson for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. In addition to all of this Hannah is one of at least 45 out LGBT+ MPs in the House of Commons… identifying on Instagram as a Lesbian / Feminist.

We discuss playing football in the House of Commons, Surfing, Coming Out, Banning Conversion Therapy for LGBTQ people & Scottish Independence.

Welcome to the Sam Grierson interview series, chatting to change makers who have Dared to Be Different and stand up and speak out. We discuss social change that has occurred over the last 30 years, how language has evolved and is evolving and how we still have more work to do. I am interested to look at the role that the Arts play, to both inspire, provoke, educate and support social change.

Actors, Singers, Members of Parliament, Artists, Authors, Activists, and Entrepreneurs who all dare… Sam Grierson interviews… Daring to be different…
