Description

In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.

"I remember all the people who died with HIV, they’re always in my heart and I want to be their voice". This week we welcome Adam Castillejo, The London Patient - the second person in the world to be cured of HIV. In a truly inspiring, life-affirming interview, Adam opens up about his extraordinary journey and his mission to be a voice of hope for millions - from being diagnosed with HIV at 23 years old, to his fight against both HIV and cancer & his battle to overcome both illnesses, which stunned the world. Trigger warning: Contains upsetting audio. The London Patient: A Cure For HIV? is a two-part series - funded by the Wellcome Trust and the British Podcast Awards Fund. What does the London Patient’s story tell us about a cure for HIV? Plus amongst a backdrop of Covid19, can the story of HIV and AIDS offer the world any hope?   The most recent estimate suggests that there are currently around 7,500 undiagnosed HIV+ people living in the U.K. If you are HIV+ and on effective treatment, you can’t pass it on.

We've heard about 'expendable' populations before, but last time they meant gay people. 32 million people have died of AIDS related illnesses since the 1980s and in 2018, 770,000 people died worldwide because of the virus. The London Patient: A Cure For HIV? is the first episode in a brand new two-part series - funded by the Wellcome Trust and the British Podcast Awards Fund. This week, we look at the start of the epidemic, chat to AIDS activist Sir Nick Partridge OBE and head to Oxford to meet Professor John Frater who explains the science behind HIV. Trigger warning: Contains upsetting audio. Incredible advances in medicine now mean that if you are HIV+ and on effective treatment, you can’t pass it on. Undetectable = Untransmittable. And in March 2019, it was revealed that a second person had been cured of HIV - The London Patient. What does the London Patient’s story tell us about a cure for HIV? Plus in the age of Covid19, can the story of HIV and AIDS offer the world any hope?

After being raped by a priest at the age 14, Colm O’Gormon tells us how he sued the pope, forcing the pontiff to tell the truth of what the catholic church knew about the rape and abuse of children by its priests.  --- We're on tour soon and we can't wait to see you, tell your friends, bring your own NonGay's!

So.many. (painfully loud, Radio 1 style) ads I unsubscribed. Couldn't deal with the constant interruptions. Shame, because the content itself is pretty good!
