Daring to be Different: In celebration of Lesbian Visibility week, I chat with LGBT Poet Laureate, Trudy Howson. We discuss lesbian visibility, poetry, the 23rd Anniversary of the homophobic hate bombing at The Admiral Duncan in Soho, coming out and Trudy reads some of her fantastic poems. Happy Lesbian Visibility Week.

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…
