Stream Stephen Fry - Out There on BBC Select

Traveling around the globe, Stephen Fry is on a mission to find out what it means to be gay in different corners of the world. In doing so, he considers how much has changed for him over the years and, sadly, how in some places change has been far more slow. While the UK and America have become more accepting, in certain countries being openly gay can mean imprisonment or even death.
