Emma Goswell - Projects Manager
If Gaydio was a drag house, I'd like to think I was the mother. I’m certainly old enough! I’ve been in the radio industry since 2002 and at Gaydio from 2006, presenting both the breakfast show and now drive. I also present on BBC Radio Manchester and host my own podcast. My background is in broadcast journalism and I started off reading news bulletins on commercial radio before moving to the BBC to work as a journalist and producer. I've been lucky enough to interview / interrogate celebrities ranging from David Cameron to Little Mix. I’m passionate about LGBT rights and am proud to be a mentor for the Albert Kennedy Trust. I’ve been out as a lesbian since 1989 and recently threw a big 'gay icons' fancy dress 30th Gayniversary party. I went as one of my favourites – George Michael!
