Calum McSwiggan – YouTube and campaign talks writing memoir

This week we’re chatting to YouTuber, radio presenter, film maker and now writer, Calum McSwiggan. His debut is a memoir, ‘Eat, Gay, Love’, which tells the story of his journey around the world, meeting different members of the LGBTQ+ community.

He hosted a popular radio show for FUBAR Radio and has also created several short films, including the award-winning Love Happens Here, which was named ‘Best LGBT+ Short Film’ at the Buffer Festival in Toronto. In 2019 he started a book club to encourage young people to read more LGBT+ literature.

We talk about how you distill a life of experiences into a 300-odd page book, how you make sure you’re giving the reader the authentic story, and the decision to write memoir in the first place.
