Welcome to episode 15 of The Orlagh Claire Podcast!
In this most recent episode, I spoke with Adam Gracey from my hometown of Lurgan/Craigavon, discussing his experience of growing up as a gay man in Northern Ireland.
A sensitive yet important discussion to have as we are from a place where equality was only recently made available when it comes to same sex marriage.
What we discussed
Adam and I discussed the LGBTQIA+ community at great length as well as the areas around this from an outside point of view.
We talked about perception through TV shows and media, we discussed the need to ‘come out’ and talked about current situation in Northern Ireland and how Adam felt as he grew into a young man.
A highly emotive and deep conversation, but one of the reasons I’m glad that I made this podcast so that we can have these important discussions and make this available to others to listen to.
Where to listen
The podcast is available to stream right now on Anchor, Spotify, Apple Music and various other podcast streaming services.
