Hello you. Ready for another hour of the finest lez/bi radio on the air in the UK? We thought you might be.
This week, Rosie Wilby has invited her pals from Shelf comedy to come into the studio to chat about taking their queer, comedy collective, The LOL Word, up to Edinburgh Fringe.
Featuring funny Women finalists, Soho Theatre Young Company members, The LOL Word, are a mixed bill of stand-up stars, rising through the comedy ranks faster than you can say Ellen DeGeneres.
🌈 We’re here, we’re queer, we’re very poor please help— The LOL Word (@lolwordcomedy) July 11, 2018
🌈 4-25th August
🌈 Three Broomsticks, South Bridge
🌈 FREE @TheFreeFringe
🌈 Fresh lineup of LGBTQ+ women & nb comedians every night
🌈 Hosted by your faves @shelfcomedy @JodieMitchell_ @_ChloeGreen_ #EdFringe
Alongside the Shelf lovelies, there'll also be live music from up-and-coming musician, Bryony Williams.
Following the success of her debut EP Wanderlust, alt-pop singer Bryony Williams returned last month with her brand new second EP, Conscious.
Hotly tipped as "one to watch", Bryony has also released an art-house music video, Narrative Form, to accompany the EP.
“It’s a song that self-analyses the combination of love and loneliness and the emotional turmoil you go through to try to understand the grey areas in life," says Bryony.
"While the psychoanalytical narrative runs deeper through the track, it becomes harder for me to even explain.” (Whoah...)
A fan of Wolf Alice, Marika Hackman and Kathleen Hanna? We'll think you'll dig Bryony too.
On top of all of that, the organisers of Brighton's first Queer Prom will be live in the studio, Rachel Shelley will be back with a report from the Pride In London Pop Up, and our most fabulous lesbro, Jonathan Phang, will have all the latest LGBT+ news from OutNews Global.
Make sure you tune in this Tuesday!
