GoLoud Presents Around The World in 80 Gays
It is with Pride that GoLoud announced on Friday 24th June 2022 the launch of Around The World in 80 Gays with Brian Kennedy and Katherine Lynch. A heart-warming, funny and thought-provoking podcast that celebrates gay culture, inspirations and icons.
In this weekly series, the hosting duo are joined by a range of entertaining and insightful guests to
hear unique, personal and funny reflections on life as a LGBTQIIA+ person and how rights and freedoms (or the lack of them) have shaped and shifted their lives.
Each delightful episode features; laugh out loud observations, personal and affecting “coming-out” stories and shameless name dropping to beat the band. That’s all to be expected when you pair Brian and Katherine and let them loose on Anna Nolan, Martin Ward, Bill Hughes and a host of other fantastic guests from Ireland and… Around The World.
Meet the hosts:
Our Brian is not only a gay man, he’s also a multi-platinum recording artist who’s played the biggest stages from Carnegie Hall to Glastonbury. Brian has also performed in Riverdance on Broadway (baby) and delighted Irish audiences as a judge on The Voice of Ireland. He’s very shy when it comes to talking about having toured and collaborated with everyone from Joni Mitchell to Boy George or his experiences growing up on the Falls Road in Belfast. Brian will announce his new podcast on stage at Glastonbury later today.
Our Katherine is Ireland’s campest straight woman. Since winning Alternative Miss Ireland in 1998 she’s made a name for herself as an Irish TV favourite, starring in; Wagons Den, Working Girls and Wonder-Woman. She’s appeared on Dancing With The Stars and is an accomplished actress and singer as well as being the former housemate of Brian Kennedy. You can catch Katherine on Ireland AM’s Pride coverage tomorrow on Virgin Media Television, where she’s assured us she’ll be plugging the pod.
Around The World in 80 Gays was created and hosted by Katherine Lynch and Brian Kennedy. The series is produced and edited by Esther O’Moore Donohoe (EO'MD Podcast Productions). Episodes are recorded at Go Loud Studios and the show is executive produced for GoLoud by Dee Reddy.
