Who are you?


Regardless of the communities we may belong to, it's clear that identity plays a very big part in our lives -- whether that's the identity given to us by our place among family, or the identity we have in official records, or the one which comes from within and which we broadcast to others in the way we present ourselves.

The Wellcome Collection in London is running a nine month season of activity on these themes entitled "The Identity Project", examining the subject through the lens of scientists, artists, actors and other individuals who have, in some way, defined or challenged the boundaries.

I've agreed to lead a tour of the exhibition in February 2010 during LGBT History Month. Prior to that this episode takes a private tour of some of the exhibits with Jane Holmes, one of the Project Managers.

    Dear Skamp, and anyone else who has asked over the last six months or so… I really do plan to come back with some more episodes before too long. In fact I’m thinking about the pitch to a special guest who might be perfect to launch a third season of shows. In the meantime I hope the existing 68 shows, plus the videos, will provide newcomers with plenty of listening pleasure.

    Best wishes
