We want to hear from you!

On January 27, we'll be getting up close and personal with R1's Gemma Cairney with a BodyPositive takeover of The Surgery with Gemma and Dr Radha, so what is it you want to talk about?

Perhaps you've hidden something about yourself for years and are now ready to tell the world. Maybe you've got a secret even your friends and family don't know.

The chances are, you're not alone. We've all got stories and now it's time to share them.

We're looking for real life tales of how you've overcome something that embarrassed you, or maybe made you feel alone or awkward. It could be anything from a physical scar to a deep fear or a condition that perhaps you think people just don't understand.

We'll back your story up with expert advice and enable you to share your experience with a community of people who are just like you. And maybe you'll be the inspiration for someone else too.

Drop us a email with an idea of what you want to talk about along with your contact details. We'd love to hear from you.
