50 years of Pride

On the day of London Pride's 50th anniversary we bring you this Pride Month interview in which Joseph Healy took part in recently with Tori West, a young queer woman, covering a range of issues including transphobia, queer history, AIDS and the trade unions.


Tori West is a journalist, content creator and founder/editor of the independent, Queer led, intersectional feminist publication, BRICKS MAGAZINE.

Joseph Healy is charity worker and has been for the last 13 and a half years. He is also a trade union activist, a shop steward and is a part of the London and Eastern Regional LGBT committee of UNITE.

In this interview, both Tori and Joseph opened about their experiences being from the LGBTQ+ community. Tori talked about some of the hardships she had in the workplace which led her to creating her own publication and Joseph gave us a personal insight into his life, his battle with AIDS and overcoming it – as well as sharing their hopes for the future.
