Ivan Jackson is a gay broadcaster and head of production at BCFM radio and played a big part in ShoutOut, an LGBTQ+ show that has been running for 7 years and is syndicated on 12 stations – from the local to the international.

In this episode of Bristol Unpacked, presenter Neil Maggs interviews Ivan Jackson on coming out during the AIDs crisis, how Peter Tatchell fought for equality legislation and was hated for it, how to tackle countries where being LGBTQ+ is still punishable by death, the additions of trans and queer to LGBTQ, and transphobia and Twitter. Plus being left off the Bristol Live’s Pink List!
