CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: #93 Will Young

Will Young is a singer, actor and host of the podcast HOMO SAPIENS.

I’m so excited to bring you this episode with Will Young. Obviously I know Will from this Pop Idol success back in the noughties, but I was a fan then and I am now too, but for a different reason: his new podcast with his friend Chris Sweeney called HOMO SAPIENS. They describe it as “two gay guys talking to people we think are interesting” and were heavily inspired by BBC’s Woman’s Hour.

Episode 1 was released to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the start of decriminalisation of homosexuality. Each weekly episode tackles a diverse mix of LGBTQ+ subjects.

Right now Will is continuing Summer Jazz Sessions with performances at music festivals and BBC’s I Feel Love concert. He is doing a series of talks about mental health at Latitude, Wilderness and Soul Circus and has an upcoming UK tour of the musical ‘Cabaret’. He’s been nominated for an Olivier Award and was also nominated for the Guardian Pride Power List 2017.
