BBC to celebrate Gay Britannia | Pride Life Magazine
For the past two weeks, the BBC has been marking 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexual acts, with the Gay Britannia season , across television, radio and online. From where we stand today, in what many of us think of as a tolerant society, it seems barely imaginable that just over 50 years ago, you could be imprisoned simply for having a consenting sexual experience with another adult of the same sex. The law may have changed but there are still many gay and transgender people who don't feel safe in the UK. And for good reason. It's a raw, visceral film in which a number of people recount their experience of homophobic hate crimes, many of which have occurred in just the past few years. It feels urgent and necessary viewing given reports of an increase in homophobic attacks across the country. The programme is powerful and heart-breaking and I admire the bravery of all those who took part in the film and spoke out about their experiences.
