Hazell Dean, the queen of Hi-NRG, talks about her top 10 hits and what it was like to perform her first big solo gig at Heaven. 

Lisa Power, the cofounder of Stonewall and a historical consultant on It’s A Sin, explains how it felt to take phone calls from terrified gay men for Switchboard and why she loves a “stroppy dyke”.
