We Can Be Heroes celebrates people who have pushed through boundaries
PRESS RELEASE · London England, UK ·
From being a misfit in society to a hero for a community, We Can Be Heroes is a brand new podcast that celebrates people who have pushed through boundaries to achieve an inspirational level of success.
Hosted by LGBTQ+ icon, Sink the Pink founder and King of the UK’s club scene Glyn Fussell, this is a podcast for anyone a bit different.
Launching today, Glyn will each week be interviewing inspirational guests who have harnessed the power of being different and turned it into the reason they’ve achieved the success they have. They’ll be bearing it all, talking about their hardships and struggles, but focussing on the triumphs and successes to prove that it’s by being ourselves and accepting our individuality that we flourish. Glyn says, “Over lockdown, like many others I found myself feeling really disillusioned and flat. I think we are all missing that human connection right now and to feel inspired by people doing extraordinary things.”
In episode one, Glyn interviews musician Skin. Focusing on her journey of self-discovery, she discusses breaking free from an abusive boyfriend and discovering her sexuality, despite it being a taboo subject in her church upbringing. In episode 2, Glyn sits down with RuPaul’s Drag Race UK alumni Bimini Bon Boulash who talks about the meaning of gender and the conversations that are happening to better understand the issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community. Reflecting on how the lack of understanding around gender and sexuality affected their upbringing, Bimini talks about their working class upbringing, the huge influence their mum had on their work, and how society’s needs for the binary has resulted in them facing harassment.
Working his entire life to inspire and be a leader within the LGBTQ+ community, Glyn Fussell has a deep respect for people who work to uplift others, and that’s why he believes every one of his guests deserves to be called a hero.
Coming up on the series, he chats to curve model Felicity Hayward, comedian Rosie Jones, cricketer Ebony Rainford Brent, co-founder of Help Refugees Josie Naughton, trans presenter/author/campaigner Paris Lees, Defected Records & Glitterbox founder Simon Dunmore, adventurer Squash Falconer with more to be announced soon!
Throughout this 12 part series, Glyn will be bringing these extraordinary people down to a human level for an intimate chat, working out how they’ve managed to fight through the struggles. He tracks their journey from finding themselves, to accepting themselves, to embracing themselves and finally becoming a hero and making their differences a superpower.
When you’re different, finding a hero to look up to can be hard. Now these role models are in one place for an inspiring series that celebrates the unique!
