This week on Radio DIVA: trans activist Charlie Craggs chats to Heather Peace and Rosie Wilby
Plus The L Word’s Rachel Shelley reports from the British LGBT Awards 🏆🌈
It’s that time of the week again! Your favourite presenters, Heather Peace and Rosie Wilby, are back for another fun-filled hour of Radio DIVA.
They have a brilliant show lined up for you. Joining them live in the studio is fabulous trans activist and DIVA Awards Rising Star nominee Charlie Craggs. Charlie's caught the attention of the national press with her groundbreaking #NailTransphobia campaign. Since 2013, she’s been travelling around the UK with her pop-up nail salon, offering members of the public free manicures and the chance to sit down and meet a trans person face-to-face. She’s won a Marie Claire Future Shaper award, published her first book - To My Trans Sisters - and made nails all over the country look terrific.
Charlie will be speaking to Heather and Rosie ahead of presenting an exciting new collaboration at Dalston’s awesome Femmetopia festival. We can’t wait to have her on Radio DIVA!
