The Cosmo on QueerID

09Jun09

The following post was originally published on the LGBT Community Forum, QueerID. The original post (and any replies) can be read by clicking here.

Hey all, Scott here!

So, I’m starting this event topic as (hopefully) a semi-permanent, regularly-updated post, letting you guys (and gals!) know about what’s to be expected on the radio show every week. After listening to the opinions and suggestions of some QueerIDers, I’m hoping to start interviewing people over the next few weeks about their experiences of being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered. If anyone is interested in coming onto the show and talking to me on air about their experiences, please get in touch with me by e-mailing thecosmo@rte.ie (FYI: While the majority of the show is live, the interviews are most likely to be pre-recorded, so there’s no pressure in trying to talk on live radio!)

In the meantime, I hope to be taking The Cosmo in a new direction. This week’s interview is with Samuel Marr, a young gay man from Crossgar in Co. Down, who has recently finished making a documentary on Iris Robinson’s homophobic comments last year. Samuel’s hometown is part of Robinson’s constituency, so when she made her opinions known in Stormont, this had a direct effect on him as a gay man.

On this week’s show, I’ll be talking to Samuel about his documentary, entitled “Mise an tUafás” (I am the Horror) which is hoped to be broadcast on TG4 later this year. Also, I’ll be talking to him about his own personal experiences as growing up as a gay man in Northern Ireland.
