Episode 9 – On sexual health

For the 9th episode of Tales from the Tea Room, Jason and I had two special guests, Lewis Clarke and Chase Ledin, Edinburgh-based researchers who led a conversation on gay men and sexual health. Talking from the perspectives of public health, queer theory, and of course, from personal experience, this episode was insightful and thought-provoking.

  1. Fantastic episode. Recorded in Leith due to the seagulls?? Haha.

    I’m Jamie Stewart, living with far too many letters after my name. I’m not as professional in the way these 2 interviewees are but have lots to say about gayness and Christianity/faith, gayness and queerness, HIV and ageing, BPD, living in the 80s and 90s, coming out, and generations within gayworld.
    I am articulate and have lots of lived experience: HIV, homelessness, mental illness, chem sex, being a church of England vicar and chaplain!

    1. Hi Jamie,

      That’s a good ear for the details; we were on the Royal Mile and there were many seagulls flying around there, we like to keep them as a background sound. Sometimes we have bagpipes too!

      Thanks for your comment, it sounds you have a very rich lived experience with many interesting subjects we could talk about! Let’s organise something!



      1. I actually LIVE on the Royal Mile haha.

        Listened to Ali and Chris in your latest podcast too. Volunteered with them.

        I’m basically a person who has dipped his toe into many experiences, mostly driven by gay shame, as explored in Velvet Rage and StraightJacket.
