In this podcast Scott talks about coming out in the 1980s and being one of the creators of the Hero parade - which at its peak in the late 1990s had audiences of hundreds-of-thousands.
Note: Scott references Keith Hay a number of times in this recording. We think he is probably referring to his son David Hay, the then Deputy Mayor of Auckland.
