About Lost Spaces

So, by now you’ve probably heard that LGBTQIA+ venues are closing at a rapid rate as gentrification reshapes cities and bar-culture is replaced with app-culture. …and, so what? Why is it important? Do we even need queer bars anymore? Lost Spaces is a conversation based podcast where every week host K Anderson speaks to a different person about a lost queer space from their past, what they got up to there, and how it helped to shape the person they’ve become.  (Ok, ok. Sometimes they also talk about who they snogged there) From small-town bars to big city superclubs, the 80s up until now (well, now-ish), every episode visits a different venue and examines why these places were important, how they helped shape us, and what we lose when we lose them.  

Episodes are released every Wednesday.

Meet Your Host

London based singer-songwriter K Anderson has made a name for himself through his self-deprecating, and deeply personal, songwriting. Best known for his 2014 single ’14 Year Old Me’, a song in which he apologises to his younger self for being ‘weak willed, and a little bit slutty’, Anderson has never been afraid to open up about, and poke fun at, his own experiences. 

It’s this same candidness that he brings to the conversations he has with guests on the show, laughing at the peculiarities of queer life.

“You can feel the affection and trust between K and anyone talking – the conversations are more about queer life than spaces – and reflect what it’s like to be queer in different ways and different spaces – hearing people you know talking about life before you knew them (or outside of your relationship with them)
I’m so loving hearing our queer stories told so well!”
