We're Back! Welcome to S2 of Qmmunity

Apr 25, 2020, 06:00 AM
We're back! Did you miss us? THANK YOU to everyone who dropped us messages on the socials (@qmmunitypod) asking when series 2 of Qmmunity was coming - it's finally here! We were in the process of polishing up all of our great interviews, and then...COVID-19 hit. So we pivoted, and here we are bringing you a socially-distanced version of Qmmunity for you to get involved with during isolation.

Join us this week as we catch up on life in lockdown, introduce our new "Swap It Like It's Hot" feature - a media club for you to join in with, and hear a wonderfully honest, raw and moving interview with intersex campaigner Anick. Please note, Anick's interview is very personal, at times challenging and contains details of medical procedures and suicide, though comes with an uplifting message. If you are affected by any of the issues discussed in this episode, you can call or instant message with the LGBT Switchboard on 0300 330 0630 (UK), or text START to 85258 for mental health support from mental health charity Shout.
