"Crashpad needed" | Episode 1

"Crashpad needed" | Episode 1

By Tash Walker, Adam Zmith and Shivani Dave

The Log Books

Monday, 4 November

Runaways and rough sleepers, communes and flatshares, crashpads and catastrophes... Stories about home feature heavily in Switchboard’s log books. Tash and Adam listen to LGBT+ people who searched for somewhere to live in the 1970s, and hear about the persistent problem of homelessness in 2019.

Content warning: stories of suicide and racism, and historic terms.

The Log Books — stories from Britain’s LGBT+ history and conversations about being queer today. Produced by Shivani Dave, Adam Smith and Tash Walker, in partnership with Switchboard - the LGBT+ helpline.
