25 years ago on Friday, April 30th, 1999, Jonathan Cash found himself standing in the Admiral Duncan pub in Soho waiting to meet friends after work. What followed was the deadliest far-right attack on minority groups on UK soil, as a nail bomb exploded in the pub, killing three and injuring many more.

In this moving and heartwarming interview, recorded to coincide with LGBT+ History Month, Jonathan shares his memories of what it was like to grow up as a young gay man in the north, his experience on that tragic evening and its impact on his life, how it ultimately led to career success, and why humour and love of life were key in helping him to move forward.
