Queer Britain with YouTuber Riyadh Khalaf to be broadcast on BBC One

BBC

Following great success online, Queer Britain will broadcast on BBC One from 3 August.

The channel’s new series is fronted by YouTube star Riyadh Khalaf and takes a look at queer culture in the UK, as well as the challenges the LGBT+ community still face.

Riyadh confirmed the news on Twitter, writing: “Queer Britain is confirmed for broadcast on from August 3rd! More details to come. YAY!!”

“I’m incredibly excited for Queer Britain to be released,” Riyadh said as the show prepared to air earlier this year. “This was a real passion project which has moved, inspired and educated me in more ways than I ever could have imagined.

“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!”

Queer Britain consists of six episodes and has been available on BBC Three’s iPlayer and YouTube channels weekly.

Issues explored include LGBT+ youth homelessness, people who are shunned by the LGBT+ community, as well as going behind the scenes of London’s popular queer club night Sink The Pink.
