Description
It's LGBT+ History Month in February and we are joined by actor, campaigner and politician Lord Cashman on the podcast. He talks about his life and journey to the Lords, fighting for equality and founding Stonewall with colleagues including Sir Ian McKellen, and how he works to make a difference as a member of the House of Lords. We also hear his thoughts on the new Channel 4 drama It's a Sin, written by Russell T Davies. We are also joined in this episode by Lord Patel, Chair of the Lords Science and Technology Committee. He talks to us about why the UK is missing its targets for health ageing and what more needs to be done to ensure we all live longer, healthier lives. Plus Amy and Matt explore what has been happening in the House of Lords since we last met, including the recall of both Houses on 30 December to pass a new law in a single day.
