SEASON 2 | EPISODE 13  
BLACK AND GAY, BACK IN THE DAY
WITH UK BLACK PRIDE 🅴




This Pride Month, Bottoming is bringing you weekly episodes for their Pride Month Series! First up, they chat to the minds behind Instagram community archive, Black & Gay, Back In The Day, writer Jason Okundaye and activist Marc Thompson. They discuss the positive response to the account since launching earlier this year, how it is creating a space to remember Black queer life in Britain, and the importance of intergenerational relationships in sharing experiences.

They then speak to Moud Goba, Chair of the Board of Trustees of UK Black Pride, and National Manager of Micro Rainbow about this year's UK Black Pride event and its theme, Love and Rage.

The boys also share the exciting news that they've been working with Jo Malone London for Pride Month, guest-editing internal communications for their employees throughout the month, and consulting on charities for Jo Malone London to support; the first of which is Micro Rainbow!
