Podcast #059: Do You Have Pride In Your Country?

A small march plods away from the camera; lots of people wearing capes and flags in various different Pride designs and colours.

Welcome to Episode 059 of my “Travel Tales From Beyond The Brochure” podcast.

This episode is a little delayed but that’s because I needed to do a lot of research. There’s quite a lot of statistics and information in it, but I hope it doesn’t bore you too much.

Last month was Pride Month in most of the world, and I thought I’d take the opportunity to look at how LGBTQIA+ culture and people are affected in various countries. I chose to look specifically at four, either because I had a connection with them through social media, or because I felt they had important stories to tell. I also wanted to show how life was for LGBTQIA+ people in places that may not often get billing on the news in many international places.

The four countries I looked at were:

  • Ghana
  • India
  • El Salvador
  • Australia

While I’ve taken steps to ensure all my research and reporting is accurate, being from none of them means I may sometimes get some nuances slightly wrong, but I’ve always aimed to get the overriding sentiment.

You can listen via the feed above, or via Spotify, or on your podcast app of choice. Let me know if it isn’t, by the way, and I’ll see what I can do. In addition, a PDF transcript of this episode is available.

As always, if you have anything to say about the topic, or indeed about my podcasting in general, leave a comment or let me know. I now have a newsletter you can subscribe to, containing extra content, and it’s where I’ll be mentioning future podcast episodes if you want to make your own contribution.

I also now have a Patreon! If you like what you hear, and want to access exclusive content (or just to show your appreciation), then head on over to my page and donate to me!
