LBGTQIA+ History Month 2022

Episode 5: Matt Hutchinson


In celebration of LGBTQIA+ History Month 2022 Emmanuel Vass, Subject Leader for Music & the Creative Arts at Morley’s North Kensington Centre speaks to members of Morley’s staff about their experiences as LGBTQIA+ individuals. Coming from all walks of life, and exploring the wide spectrum of experiences, rites of passages, and challenges that often come with growing up as an LGBTQIA+ person, join us to listen to the illuminating, personal, and lively stories of our guests.


Matt is Morley College’s Puppetry Tutor. In this episode, there are similarities with Craig Hanlon-Smith’s journey of going to drama school in episode 1, and also Matthew Cunningham’s LGBTQIA+ passion topic in episode 2. We explore this similar passion topic further, as try to pinpoint why this passion topic is a recurring theme throughout LGBTQIA+ life, history, and society. We also discuss Matt’s life growing up in what he describes as “quiet” southeast London.
