Do you 'act straight' to stay safe on public transport too?

Do you 'act straight' to stay safe on public transport too? This week on #QueerAF we explore just how safe public transport is for LGBT+ people. Reporter Cassie Galpin hears three intersecting stories from Will, Nikki and Martyn, who have faced prejudice while traveling, but turned those hate crimes into three inspiring actions. 

Today’s show was produced by @CassieGalpin, executive production on this episode came from @Jamie_Wareham. Thanks to Martyn, Nikki and Will for sharing their inspiring stories today.

The hate crime reporting form we mentioned in the show is here:

Do you have a story to tell? This podcast pays LGBT+ producers, students and graduates to tell their most #QueerAF story.
