A Podcast Series Celebrating The Diverse Voices of LGBTQI+ Communities ANTHEMS PRIDE Launches For Pride Month

20 May 2020

Pride Month is not only a celebration of LGBTQI+ individuals, their lives and identities but it is also an important time to commemorate the history of the LGBTQI+ movement. The Anthems Pride podcast series, produced by Broccoli Content serves to highlight the diverse voices of individuals who are making history and whose lives inspire others to live fully; to be who they really are.

Pride Month in June 2020 takes place during a time in the world when introspection and self-expression are becoming intertwined. This dynamic podcast collection of declarations, stories and proclamations, highlights why Pride is longer than a month. It cannot be confined to a timeframe in a sense as beyond this month there is still work to be done and there are still legacies to be made.

Anthems Pride is a profound and poignant series which speaks to our need for community and unity with an array of diverse voices including; singer-songwriter and YouTuber dodie, the BBC’s first LGBT correspondent Ben Hunte Content creator and columnist Raven Smith, Multi-award-winning singer-songwriter Grace Savage, British-Iraqi drag performer, writer and filmmaker Amrou Al-Kadhi, Actor & Writer Isabel Adomakoh Young and Multimedia journalist Freddy McConnell.

"We need community now, more than ever - words that bind us, not divide us. I saw how much of an impact Anthems Women and Anthems Home had on people, how much comfort and courage listeners were finding in the words of others and really wanted to bring that to Pride, especially as Pride celebration events have been cancelled. We have an exceptional selection of voices from exclusively LGBTQI+ communities contributing to this series, their words are raw, honest, inspiring, moving, motivating- there truly is something for everyone and it's a real privilege to be able to bring them to our listeners and celebrate the words and experiences of some truly brilliant people.  It was really important it was for us to represent all of these communities and I hope it inspires others to be proud of who they are" – Hana Walker-Brown.

Anthems Pride was created, executive produced and sound designed by Hana Walker-Brown with Producer Bea Duncan for Broccoli Content.
