A number of BBC stations on TV and radio are part of a major strand of lgb programming to mark the 50th anniversary of decriminalisation of homosexuality in England.
Over on BBC Radio 4, Front Row has been making its contribution to Queer Britain, and helpfully notes that the occasion is the 50th anniversary of the partial
decriminalisation of male homosexuality in 1967.
The contribution is a series of short interviews with LGBTQ guests champion queer artworks which are special to them.
Here are the nine that are available so far:
Christine and the Queens on Jean Genet: Christine champions the novel Our Lady of the Flowers
Tarell Alvin McCraney on Paris is Burning: Moonlight writer Tarell champions the drag queen doc
Will Young on Everyday Boy: Will chooses Joan Armatrading’s song Everyday Boy.
Alan Carr on My Father and Myself: Alan chooses J.R. Ackerley’s memoir.
Maggi Hambling on Some Like it Hot: Maggi picks Billy Wilder's 1959 film classic.
Antony Sher on Torch Song Trilogy: Sir Antony chooses the play and film by Harvey Fierstein.
Stephen Fry on Julian and Sandy: Stephen chooses the comedy duo from Round the Horne.
Val McDermid on Orlando: Val champions Virginia Woolf's novel
Peggy Reynolds on Sappho: Peggy chooses the ancient Greek poet
