It is Pride Week in Bristol. I’m going to be busy.
Tomorrow evening we have the fabulous Roz Kaveney at Hydra Books from 6:00pm. Roz will primarily be talking about Tiny Pieces of Skull, but I’m sure that she can be persuaded to read poetry and/or talk about the Rhapsody of Blood series as well.
On Wednesday I will be hosting a Women’s Outlook Pride Special. Roz will guest on the show. We’ll also have a lot of information about other Pride events. And we’ll have some special guests talking about exciting things due to happen in Bristol next year.
And on Saturday we have Pride Day itself. Shout Out will be broadcasting live from Castle Park all day, and I’ll be helping out. For at least part of the day the show will be carried on Ujima and will feature Ujima presenters. The current plan is for me to co-host the show from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. Will I play Amanda Lear? You bet! Will I get to interview Cheryl Baker (why yes, we do have most of Bucks Fizz playing live on the day)? I have no idea. Actually I’d love to chat to Marnie from Ladytron who will also be performing. And we’ve got Heather Small, formerly of M People. It’s gonna be busy, that’s all I can say.
