This Week on Radio DIVA: Rain Dove, Chardine Taylor Stone and girl band Muna
Plus: Radio DIVA Presenters Heather Peace and Rosie Wilby reveal their highlights from the inaugural DIVA Literary Festival
Ladies, what a weekend. The Radio DIVA team are back in the studio after a wonderful couple of days at the inaugural DIVA Literary Festival in Birmingham! On the show tomorrow, presenters Heather Peace and Rosie Wilby will reveal their favourite moments from the festival this weekend, where both performed as part of the festival's amazing Saturday Night Salon!
We are also very excited to have Instagram superstar Rain Dove joining us. Rain gave us a sneak preview of what's in store:
"The DIVA Literary Festival shocked me in a way that felt like lightning. To find out why listen to Radio DIVA tonight. 😉"
On top of that, in the studio we're joined by award winning cultural producer, writer and feminist activist Chardine Taylor Stone. Chardine won the Outstanding Contribution to LGBT Life Award at the British LGBT Awards earlier this year and will be talking to us about her current project, Missing Words: Black Women in British Youth Subcultures as well as her own appearance at #DIVALitFest.
We also interview LA-based, "dark pop" girl band Muna, known for blending the brooding sensuality of R&B, rhythms of funk, and audacity of synthpop with raw, unbridled lyricism.
And of course, roving reporter and The L Word favourite Rachel Shelley brings us her weekly report, this week, on the film Thelma. And not forgetting our fabulous resident lesbro Jonathan Phang with the very latest in LGBT headlines from OutNews Global.
Make sure you tune in!
