Erasure's Andy Bell talks bullying, bathhouses, and gay '80s superstardom

In episode five, editor-in-chief Matt Cain chats to musician and Erasure frontman Andy Bell at his home in London. Andy talks about growing up as an effeminate boy on a council estate in Peterborough, his earliest sexual experiences, and the pressures of being one of very few openly gay celebrities in the 80s.

He also discusses the death of his long-term partner and the reality of being a gay man living with HIV.

Andy’s interview is insightful and sometimes startlingly frank. You won’t want to miss it!
