Matthew Sweet chairs an "International Review" edition of the programme, with critics from around the world coming together to discuss the latest global cultural events and arts issues. They'll be discussing an Afrikaaner drama Beauty by Oliver Hermanus about being secretly gay in Bloemfontein; an Egyptian novel Azazeel by Youssef Ziedan, set in a world populated by worshippers of both Jesus and Jupiter; and as the world's biggest ever Shakespeare festival kicks off later this month, we'll be asking how global Britain's greatest author really is.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
