Episode 1 - Sir Ian McKellen

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales, Attitude magazine interviews 12 of its all-time heroes for a landmark series of podcasts.

In episode 1, Editor-in-Chief Matt Cain chats to actor Ian McKellen in a world exclusive at his home in East London. The star of X-Men and The Lord of the Rings talks about growing up gay before legalisation, his sexual awakening in the theatre and how his political awakening led him to become a co-founder of LGBT+ rights organisation Stonewall and a global activist. This is Ian’s most intimate and revealing interview ever!

Attitude Heroes is sponsored by the GREAT Britain campaign, welcoming the world to visit, do business, invest and study in the UK.
