Faith, Sex & Me
An award-winning collaboration with Hits Radio Pride
Faith, Sex & Me tells the stories of 20 LGBTQ+ people and their relationship with faith, in their own words. For many in the LGBTQ+ community, religion can be uplifting and inspirational, but it can also be painful and excluding.
This series asks big questions about sex, God, identity, and equality. Never “preachy”, it creates a space for powerful and surprising human stories, humour and heartbreak. Airing on Hits Radio Pride (the UK’s first commercial LGBTQ+ radio station from a major broadcaster) and supported by the Audio Content Fund, each three minute episode hears the story of one person who shares their personal relationship with faith and sexuality.
These engaging shortform stories represent the diverse faiths that are to be found in modern UK society: Christians, Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus, Jews, Buddhists, and even Pagans.
