gay britannia

Continuing the BBC’s celebration of Gay Britannia, Queer as Art takes a look back at how the art world was influenced by the gay movement.

With interviews from a range of influential names including Stephen Fry, Val MacDermid, Nick Grimshaw, Sandi Toksvig, Alan Cumming, Will Young, Anthony Sher, Jeanette Winterson and Russell T Davies, this documentary reflects on the contribution of lesbian and gay people to British cultural life since the partial decriminalisation of male homosexuality 50 years ago.
