Queer Stories from the Home of Metal
with Andrew O’Neill

Heavy metal, spawned in the West Midlands half a century ago, has become one of the world’s most popular and distinctive forms of culture. Now it’s time to celebrate the queerness that’s always been part of metal – if sometimes hiding in plain sight – in a scene that’s endlessly theatrical in music and costume, blending escapism, fantasy and outsider culture.

For the last few months, Home of Metal and SHOUT have been talking to LGBTQ+ metal fans in the West Midlands to gather queer perspectives on metal culture – and metal fans’ views on queer culture.

Join award-winning comedian, rock musician, writer and ‘psychedelic non-binary whirlwind’ Andrew O’Neill, the team behind acclaimed podcast Hell Bent for Metal, and a diverse group of LGBTQ+ heavy metal fans to hear some of the best queer stories from the Home of Metal.
