PODCAST: Grandma’s Story

A new podcast drama produced by Xtra Features for Leicester Digital Pride 2020.

How would you feel if your grandchild came out as gay? Would you accept them and love them no matter what, or would you find it difficult to accept their sexuality as it goes against everything you believe in? This is Grandma’s story.

Grandma’s Story has been produced by Xtra Features for Leicester Digital Pride and was streamed live as part of the Pride festivities on September 5th 2020.

Leicester Digital Pride is a collaboration between Leicester LGBT Centre and Trade Sexual Health in order to give the LGBT community of Leicester a pride event to celebrate after the physical event scheduled for Summer 2020 was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
