Next Episode of Prejudice and Pride: The People's History of LGBTQ Britain is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Presented by Stephen K Amos and Susan Calman, this series features LGBTQ people from across the UK as they share the objects that helped define their lives during the transformative 50 years since the 1967 Sexual Offences Act partially decriminalised homosexuality, offering lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people the opportunity to start living openly for the first time.
The first episode explores the years between 1967 and 1987 and reveals the extraordinary stories behind these objects: from a rare collection of the first openly gay magazine (featuring a virtually unknown young singer, David Bowie) to letters from the parents of those who came out following the 1967 Sexual Offences Act.
It also features the fearless revolutionaries of the Gay Liberation Front, a woman who faced losing her children when she came out as a lesbian and looks at the effects of the AIDS crisis in the early 1980s on the LGBTQ community.
This second episode looks specifically at the last 30 years, when many public figures took it upon themselves to stand up for LGBTQ rights, and features the freedom-fighting Sisters Of Perpetual Indulgence; the writer behind TV's steamiest lesbian kiss and a Muslim man who set up an LGBT support group for South East Asians.
Prejudice and Pride: The People's History Of LGBTQ Britain is produced in partnership with the Open University. The academic consultants from the OU are Professor Jacqui Gabb, Professor of Sociology & Intimacy and Professor Darren Langdridge, Professor of Psychology & Sexuality.
