Gary Younge is an award-winning author, broadcaster and academic based in London. Formerly a columnist at The Guardian, he has recently been appointed Professor of Sociology at Manchester University. He is the author of five books, and has made several radio and television documentaries on subjects ranging from gay marriage to Brexit.
