This week on Radio DIVA: singer-songwriter Toya Delazy

Plus the LGBT Poet Laureate, author Sylvia Brownrigg and Rachel Shelley’s roving report.



It’s another jam-packed show this week on Radio DIVA.


Our wonderful, witty hosts Rosie Wilby and Jen Brister will be joined by singer-songwriter Toya Delazy. We were so blown away by her song Diamonds In The Rough when it was last week's Track Of The Week, we invited her onto the show. She'll be serenading Rosie and Jen and chatting about her life and work.


Toya told us:


“I'm super excited to be on the show to talk about my journey from Cape Town to East London and to share my new music with people I'm inspired by.”


Also in the studio, is the UK’s first LGBT Poet Laureate Trudy Howson. The exciting post of LGBT Poet Laureate was created by Camden LGBT Forum with the aim of raising the profile of LGBT poetry in the UK.


Trudy isn't the only writer on this week's show. We've coming over all literary and invited Sylvia Borwnrigg to join in the fun. Her book Pages For Her is an absolute must-read. We can't wait to hear more from her.


Plus there’ll be all the usual favourites - Rachel Shelley’s roving report, lesbro Jonathan Phang’s LGBT headlines and another up and coming artist in DIVA Discovers.


Listen live to Radio DIVA at 6.30pm every Tuesday (on Resonance 104.4FM and DAB in London and online at or catch up anytime at
