BBC RADIO LEEDS – INTERVIEW WITH LIZ GREEN
Topic: Discussion with Liz Green on Gentleman Jack – Is It Easier To Come Out Now Vs The 1800s?
Gentleman Jack is a new period drama due to air on the BBC in May 2019.
“The BBC1 series from Sally Wainwright focuses on Anne Lister, a woman often labelled “the first modern lesbian.”
The new series will explore the remarkable real-life woman who charmed her way into high society and planned – much to the horror of her neighbours – to marry a woman.”
I chatted with Liz today about my thoughts on coming out now vs back in the 1800s. I talk about my experiences with coming out (when I was 21 and an incident today in a hotel), the influence of celebrities and the role that media has to play in normalising being LGBT+.
