BBC launches a new show to represent the diversity of LGBT community


LGBT is not just an abbreviation – these are people of different ages, professions, races, religions and lifestyles – these are millions of stories to be told, and the new show Queer Britain will try to cover at least a part of them. The show, presented by journalist and YouTube star Riyadh Khalaf, will start on 7th May and particularly it is for youth and about youth – the main characters are queers from 16 to 35. Khalaf, who has more than 280,000 subscribers on YouTube, said he was “incredibly excited for Queer Britain to be released. “This was a real passion-project which has moved, inspired and educated me in more ways than I ever could have imagined,” he added, “The series pulls no punches and goes straight to the heart of the issues facing LGBTQ+ people in the UK today. At times it’ll make you feel uncomfortable, shocked and maybe even upset, but overall I think you will see the beauty and diversity of this community in its full glory. This is a raw representation of modern Queer life – the highs, the lows and the high heels!” The executive producer of BBC3 completely divided such an excitement saying: “Launching a formidable new talent in Riyadh, a diverse and young team behind the camera, plus brilliant short-form for social around each episode, I’m sure it will have real impact with audiences and the wider community”
