COMING OUT STORIES: A brand new podcast about one of the most important conversations of your life

PRESS RELEASE — September 19, 2018

Manchester, UK—What Goes on Media, a creative audio agency based in the North West, are proud to release a brand-new podcast series Coming Out Stories.

Each episode lets one person tell their own story in their own words and share their experience of coming out. Sometimes heartbreaking, often hilarious, always emotional.

Hosted by Emma Goswell, an award-winning broadcast journalist with 16 years’ experience of presenting in commercial and BBC radio, Emma currently presents the drivetime show on Gaydio – the world’s biggest LGBT radio station.

Emma says: “I’m beyond excited about Coming Out Stories. Over the last few months, I’ve been privileged to hear some incredible stories that have sent me on a rollercoaster of emotions and I just can’t wait for other people to hear them. It might seem ridiculous that in 2018 people have to come ‘out’, but while young people are still being bullied or even thrown out of their homes for being LGBT+, it’s still a conversation that will fill many people with dread. My real desire is that in sharing these stories it will give LGBT+ people, who have yet to come out, some hope and those who don’t know they have LGBT+ people in their family or workplace some understanding. Gay or straight, young or old, I want everyone to enjoy Coming Out Stories. And who knows, it may even encourage people to have those important conversations in their own lives”.

The podcast is produced by award-winning agency What Goes On Media. Managing Director and broadcaster Sam Walker, Executive Producer of the series, said “Coming Out Stories will take you to one the most important moments in many people’s lives. It will perch you on sofas in suburban sitting rooms, stand you in front of officials’ desks, put you at the centre of a crowd in a noisy classroom, everywhere where these conversations have happened. It doesn’t even matter if you haven’t had a conversation like this yourself, or indeed ever plan to. Everyone can recognise the innate human desire to love and be loved, and that’s what these stories are about”.

Coming Out Stories launches with four stories on September 24 2018 and will then release a new episode weekly.
