What's the talk about?

For decades, science has been fascinated by the LGBTQ+ community. What makes gay people gay? How does sexuality affect one's behaviour, appearance, or ability to raise children? In this talk scientist and PhD student Cerys Bradley, a part time comedian and full time bisexual, explains the extent and impact of scientific research on the LGBTQ+ community in a bid to understand the more important question: just because science can ask a question, does that mean it should?
