On her weekend outing this week, Emma will be chatting to an actual Olympian! Chelsea Wolfe made history as the first ever trans person to be selected for Team US, and is about to head out to Tokyo to be an alternate for the BMX team. Plus Emma meets Amir and Aamir, hearing how they suffered family rejection but went on to fall in love and become the first same sex South Asian couple to get married in Bradford!

And finally, she'll also hear from Tony Openshaw;a gay man who's spent the last 40 years fighting for the rights of LGBT people, asylum seekers and those with HIV. In the 80s, he knocked tennis balls filled with condoms into the grounds of Strangeways Prison!
