CGiii Comment

Do not be misled into thinking this is anything about art...it's not!

Composed - almost - entirely of archive footage...in other words, cheap TV. This is just a litany of 'celebrity' talking heads...going on and on and on about [their] sexuality. Yawn!

Maggi Hambling - says it most succinctly about now: Queer is boring!

Keep on smoking in the faces of those who oppress us, Maggi! What a woman, she speaketh the truth!



The(ir) Blurb...

Hour-long documentary celebrating the LGBTQ contribution to the arts in Britain in the 50 years since decriminalisation. This film is part of the Gay Britannia season of BBC programming to mark the 50th anniversary celebrations.

The film features interviews with leading figures from right across the arts in Britain, including Stephen Fry, David Hockney, Sir Antony Sher, Alan Cumming, Sandi Toksvig, Jeanette Winterson, Will Young and Alan Hollinghurst, and it explores the distinctive perspectives and voices that LGBT artists have brought to British cultural life.
