Your Manchester Stories podcast series

22 Oct 2019

Each week we’ve been delving into the lives of our graduates, talking about everything from why they chose Manchester to what they’ve being doing since graduating.

Your Manchester Stories

Monday’s episode featured Tag Warner, CEO of global media brand and publisher Gay Times and founder of Amplifund – working to support LGBTQ activism in the media by helping increase the acceptance of these communities around the world. Tag shares his experience growing up and coming out in Jersey, becoming a young CEO at age 25 and rebranding himself during his time at Manchester.

You can catch up on Tag’s story on Spotify, Apple Podcasts or wherever you usually listen to podcasts. Each Monday for the next few weeks we’ll be talking to a number of alumni with a range of inspiring stories to tell:

  • Jim Hancock, former political editor for BBC NorthWest who’s interviewed every British Prime Minister since Harold Wilson
  • Gail Bradbook, co-founder of Extinction Rebellion
  • Christine Burns, pioneering trans rights campaigner
  • Trishna Bharadia, award-winning chronic illness and disability advocate and Outstanding Alumni Award winner
  • Bev Craig, city councillor and LGBT lead for Manchester
