“You can't talk about living boldly with HIV on stage, and then not say it in the barber’s chair”

Nathaniel Hall is an actor, writer, performer and HIV positive activist.  He starred in Russell T Davies’ amazing Channel 4 series, “It’s A Sin”.  

Nathaniel’s own award-winning solo show, “The First Time”, tells the story of how he contracted HIV, after his first time.  He was only 16.  

In this episode, Nathaniel talks about coming to terms with that diagnosis at such a young age; about how to find peace after trauma and how it’s through refusing to be ashamed, that he helps other people.

Your host, Lisa Morton, started PR company Roland Dransfield in 1996, one month after the fateful IRA bomb that tore apart the city centre.  From that point, the business, and its team members, have been involved in helping to support the creation of Modern Manchester – across regeneration, business, charity, leisure and hospitality, sport and culture.


To celebrate the 25 years that Roland Dransfield has spent creating these bonds, Lisa is gathering together some of her Greater Mancunian ‘family’ and will be exploring how they have created their own purposeful relationships with the best place in the world.
