Dialect Radio interview

On air. As it were.

So I went to the BCFM (Bristol community radio) studio and did an interview with John Peters-Coleman of Dialect Radio. We talked about attitudes to transsexual people, media portrayal, Tribunals, and "Becoming Drusilla."

The Dialect Radio show goes out on BCFM on Saturday and Sunday evenings.

The programme can be heard here

  1. Interesting interview, Dru. Came across really well, too.

    Who was the person being interviewed at the store?


  2. Liked it, Dru. You handled your interviewer's earnest confusion graciously. Good idea to play the strong Toni interview excerpt first, too.

  3. Thank you, Larry!
    Chrissie, that was Toni, who organises the Bristol LGB Forum website. She's really nice, and, as you can tell from the interview, very articulate.
