Ssshhh! Top Secret!

Well, if you ever wanted to know just how much we can pack into a show, this week really has to be that example as we turn over almost the complete show to spying!
"The Imitation Game" has recently started screening in cinemas across the UK. So with that in mind, we decided to re-run our special from 2012 on Alan Turing. Out Shout, our new feature giving you the best events for the week, talked about the film as most of the team have been to so it (and very well worth seeing if you haven't done so already). Then, to top it all off, Ivan managed to speak to a gay employee at GCHQ to find out what it's like being gay in the intelligence services today.....(Don't worry, they let Ivan back out)!

Outstories - Local LGBT History

Firstly, please excuse our show this week. Having lost studio 1 due to a major technical fault, the team had to broadcast from studio 2 which isn't as familiar territory to them.
This week we mark Transgender Day Of Remembrance with a report from Cheryl who attended the events of the day as Bristol has it's first flag raising in its honour.
Andy and Chris from Out Stories joined the team live in the studio to talk about what they have been up to, including their latest project to add an LGBT layer to Bristol City Council's history mapping website. See the links for more details.
And talk about camp! Well, campanology that is... Matthew revealed his other hobby as he introduced the team to bell ringing..

Cycle Out

This week it was Mitch's turn to muck up the beginning of the show. Oh well people, we do try we promise!
Still, it was a packed show with James from the Palace joining Steff for this week's Out Shout, then Kevin from Cycle Out joined the team live in the studio to talk about their events.
Then, ShoutOut became BakeOut as Glenn Cosby from last year's Great British Bake Off turned up with cake!!

Black , Gay and Confident

Well that was NOT how you start a show now was it Andy! Sorry all, he fluffed his lines, but still the show got going and this week it was all toilets! Well, actually it was an art show in a former toilet. Yes, weird we know, but actually quite interesting!
And ShoutOut's very own young Jon joined the team in the the studio. As a young, gay, BME (black minority ethnic) guy, he talked about Black History month as well as his own experiences so far being in two minority communities.
Then to round it off, after joining us live on air last week, Tim reported back on the Leather West events that took place over the weekend.
Don't forget one and all, the clocks go BACK this weekend!!

We Celebrate World Mental Health Day

This week sees the global Mental Health Awareness Day take place on Friday. So this week the team spoke to several people on the subject. Julia and Sue joined Andy and Natalie to talk about "Rethink Mental Illness". You may have spotted them at Pride where they were handing out a rather interesting "quick self test" card. On the show to help raise awareness of mental health services available to the LGBT community, the team chatted to them about the various services on offer, as well as their future plans and ideas. If you'd like to know more, follow the links in the links section on the show page of our website, or give them a call: 0117 9031805 or email bristolservices@rethink.org
Then the team had a very nice catch up with Michelle from The Emotional Wellness Program. Regular listeners will remember us talking to Michelle over 4 years ago when she was just starting the program. Now, it's not only doing very well, but it's growing too!
And finally, anyone remember what on Earth that heartbeat is all about??
