The best of the world's arts, film, music and literature brought to you every day. Presented by Anna McNamee.

Male Nudes in Vienna
The female nude body has long been celebrated and exhibited, but The Leopold Museum in Vienna is currently staging the first major exhibition devoted to the male nude. And it's stirring up controversy.

Keep The Lights On
We talk to American director Ira Sach about his new film, a haunting and melancholic gay post mortem of a relationship that no matter how loving is defined by dysfunction.

Uganda Pride
British photographer Rachel Adams travelled to Uganda earlier this year to document the country's first Gay Pride event, despite the fact that same-sex relationships are illegal there. Her photographs are on display at the Homotopia festival in Liverpool, UK.
