Life Matters is a ground-breaking new podcast where people with real experiences talk candidly about how suicide has affected them, where we get the very latest on innovative suicide prevention initiatives being developed around the world, investigate special projects - and hear from people who are creating some fun ways to help people to open up.
In this third programme, guest presented by actor and star of Welsh soap Pobol Y Cwm Dyfan Rees, 'Life Matters' looks at the impact of suicide on LGBTQI+ people. Dyfan chats to Ian Howley from the charity LGBTHero and examines how gay men in particular have been affected during the Covid-19 pandemic, Ashley Byrne reports on new research being carried out around lesbian and bisexual women in America, Freddy Chick talks to Talen Wright about micro-aggression faced by trans people and bisexual journalist Nichi Hodgson tells her personal story.
