STEPHEN FRY: OUT THERE

Stephen Fry

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.

STACEY DOOLEY: HATE AND PRIDE IN ORLANDO

Stacey Dooley travels to Orlando in the aftermath of the 2016 Pulse Bar homophobic attack where 49 people were killed. Attending vigils, marches and funerals she tries to understand how America is responding to this atrocity and if this could be the one to finally make a difference. Was the shooter himself gay and did a conflict between religion and sexuality have a bearing on the crime?

TEENAGE AND GAY

Young gay people in the UK are increasingly discovering the confidence to come out while still at school. In recent years there has been a revolution in social acceptance, but coming out while still a teen is always fraught with difficulties and dangers. This documentary follows five teenagers as they come out, capturing intimate first-hand experiences as they seek acceptance for their sexuality.

GRAYSON PERRY: ALL MAN

Grayson Perry stands between two men

As a dress-wearing, ‘lifelong cissy’ artist, Grayson Perry is no stranger to the question of what a real man is – he’s spent his whole life messing with machismo. Now, from mixed martial-arts fighters to police, criminals and stockbrokers, Perry explores our ultra-masculine worlds, intent on proving his belief that men are a stranger and more interesting bunch than they let on.
