Our 'It Gets Better' Podcast series was launched as part of LGBT History Month in February 2019. Through the podcasts we hope to demonstrate to everyone that whilst coming out might not always be joyous and full of rainbows, IT DOES GET BETTER. By listening to the podcasts you'll hear from gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans members of staff; you'll also hear from people whose intersectionalities have made their coming out that bit more challenging.
You can listen to the launch event using this link.
