This monologue sits at the core of my songs and stories. First delivered to an audience as a live reading at a Pride Centre, Performance Positive event in 1997, I have kept this story closest to me over the years.
I knew from sharing this story as a live reading that My Man and Me would work well for radio. Although quite an intimate story of a most personal experience, I believe it says important things to share.
My Man and Me was first broadcast to a Sydney radio audience on FBI Radio, All the Best, in May 2013 for Reconciliation Week. In February of 2014 the story was shared nationally on ABC Radio National, Sounds Like Radio.
The radio broadcast of My Man and Me proudly achieved being short listed as a finalist for an Australian Human Rights Awards in 2014 for outstanding contribution to the advancement of human rights in Australia.
