In this final episode in the current season of your city or mine?, Julio meets Lord Michael Cashman, politician, writer and actor. First a child actor in the 1960s and 70s, Lord Cashman became famous (and stirred controversy) in the late 1980s in the UK when he played an openly gay man in the hugely popular soap EastEnders. He later co-founded Stonewall and became Britain’s first special envoy on LGBT issues. He became a MEP in 1999, a position he held for 15 years, and later left the Labour Party over his opposition to Brexit. He currently sits in the House of Lords – fiercely dedicated to equality – and has recently published a memoir, One of Them. Plus, Julio speaks to Michael Juliano, editor of Time Out Los Angeles, about the latest trends in the Californian city.
What does the future of our cities look like? What trends are going to shape the way we live, eat, work and unwind? What political and social issues are going to impact the way we make connections, build communities and do business? And what’s next for the cultural industries that bring our cities to life?
In your city or mine?, Julio Bruno – former Time Out Group CEO – chats to the world’s most influential trendsetters, thought-leaders and policymakers about the stuff that’s shaping our cities.
