Conleth Kane: Bombs, Bummers and Beautiful Things

Welcome to the latest episode of In the Key of Q, a podcast that shines a light on the LGBTQ+ community and their stories.

In this episode, Conleth Kane talks to Dan Hall about his journey growing up gay in working-class Northern Ireland during the Troubles. He shares his personal struggles with violence and bombings in his hometown and the challenges he faced when seeking acceptance within the anti-gay right-wing Democratic Unionist Party.

Conleth also discusses a mysterious cancellation on a BBC programme that was to feature an MP from the Democratic Unionist Party, shedding light on the ongoing segregation between Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland.

Conleth opens up about the trauma of his mother’s illness clashing with an important album launch and tells us about his famous London night spot at the Above the Stag Theatre in Vauxhall.
