Our Unique Tales

At the age of 31, radio presenter Ed Roche came out to his family and close friends as a gay man.

Years of living in the closet finally came to an end for Ed after years of shame, embarrassment and fear.

Now 33, Ed is set to present a brand-new radio documentary series Ed Roche - Our Unique Tales.

"The reason I chose the name Our Unique Tales is because everyone's story is so unique," says Ed.

There is no one way of coming out. I also like the word our - it’s very inclusive - just like this series. Also, the first letter of every word spells the words OUT. I thought it was a subtle way of including a word that means so much to me and many other LGBTQIA+ people."

"Our Unique Tales is a series about LGBTQIA+ people in this country," reveals Ed.

"It’s a story on their lives, from the difficulties they faced growing up in this country, to where they are today. A lot of tears were shed when making this series, I just really hope it connects with people no matter what your sexuality is."
