Being A Man Jude Kelly, the Southbank Centre 's Artistic Director, presents the second BAM - Being A Man festival, providing a platform for conversations on how men's roles are evolving in the 21st century. It's an opportunity for men to come together to share stories, discuss the pleasures and challenges of being men, and look at what kind of world they want for themselves and others. Once again a large number of men contribute ideas for the festival, with the line-up featuring comedian David Baddiel, discussing everything from his success to battling with depression; Kellie Maloney, formerly known as Frank Maloney, discussing her extraordinary journey; Letters to 007, examining why people are still obsessed with James Bond; and Poems That Make Grown Men Cry. Further speakers include winner of World Press Photo 2015 Mads Nissen, comedian Jeremy Hardy, Radio 1 DJ Gemma Cairney, broadcaster, TV presenter and journalist Rick Edwards, and Britain's first out Muslim Drag Queen Asif Quraishi.
