Watch Love, Simon on All 4, before it’s removed later this week! It’s coming-of-age, coming-out comedy starring Nick Robinson as a teenager whose well-kept secret about his sexuality is threatened by a classmate who starts blackmailing him.
It’s one of my all time favourite LGBT+ films!
Just heard the news that All 4 and 4HD is being removed from Freesat, by Channel 4! Not happy at all!! Who the hell watches stuff in SD nowadays? Next will stop showing things in colour!
Make sure you go on Facebook, Twitter etc and tell them this is not on!!
50 Shades of Gay, tonight (Monday 3rd July 2017) on Channel 4 at 10pm should be a great watch
In this personal documentary, Rupert Everett explores the changes in gay life in the 50 years since the decriminalisation of male homosexuality in England and Wales in 1967. He meets LGBT people from all walks of life, including former royal butler Paul Burrell, black gay rapper Jai’Rouge, actors from Hollyoaks, and Southend carpenter Steve, and visits the ‘lesbian capital of Britain’, Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire. So much has been gained in the long journey towards mainstream acceptance, but has something of the rebellious, outsider spirit of gay culture also been lost? Is Britain finally able to accept the full 50 shades of gay?
Britain’s Great Gay Buildings this Saturday (Saturday 24th June 2017), on Channel 4 should be a good watch!
In Britain’s Great Gay Buildings, presented by Stephen Fry, seven famous gay faces champion the buildings that have helped define Britain’s gay history, revealing the groundbreaking events that happened there and the extraordinary people who lived and worked at these key historical sites. The Reverend Richard Cole revisits Heaven Nightclub, to reveal its hedonistic past. Mary Portas visits Shibden Hall, in Yorkshire, to discover the secret diaries of a Yorkshire heiress. Craig Revel Horwood explores Britain’s drag scene at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern. Simon Callow tells the story of Oscar Wilde’s downfall at the Old Bailey. Rikki Beadle Blair visits the Theatre Royal Haymarket, to discover how the British public showed their support for Sir John Gielgud after his arrest for cottaging. Liz Carr travels to Bletchley Park, which fostered one of Britain’s greatest scientists, Alan Turing. And Baron Waheed Alli tells the story of the Houses of Parliament’s recent battle for gay rights.

If you live in the UK. Please all watch this documentary on Channel 4 called “Hunted” it’s on between 10:00pm and 11:00pm this Wednesday (5th February 2014).
On the eve of the Sochi Winter Olympics, Russia is officially welcoming gay athletes and spectators. But in a country where it’s thought only 1% of gay people dare to live completely openly, it appears to be a hollow gesture. This Dispatches film – directed by Ben Steele and presented Liz MacKean – has gained unique access to the vigilante gangs that target gay men and women. This extraordinary film depicts a country troubled by disturbing violence and distressing intimidation. Six months after the Russian parliament unanimously passed a law to protect children from ‘non-traditional’ relationships, this film explores the terror that gay people in Russia are calling ‘hunting season’.
I would like to say a big thanks to Channel 4 for showing “Queer as Pop: From the Gay Scene to the Mainstream”. Just hope that some of my straight mates also watched it.
It’s the first of three programmes tonight on Channel 4 (Friday 27th December 2013) around the theme of the importance of the gay scene and its musical icons in pop culture. This documentary charts the men, music and moments that have brought pop music out of the closet and changed the world along the way. Queer as Pop details how the gay clubs and scene have inspired and affected the music mainstream over the last 40 years. This fascinating documentary shows how music has been influenced by the political and social liberation of gay men, charting key events from the repealing of laws banning homosexuality, through to the emergence of the disco era and the David Bowie-inspired New Romantics. Chic’s Nile Rodgers, DJ Paul Oakenfold, Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters and Erasure’s Andy Bell discuss the evolutionary music scene spanning disco, New Romantics and house, through to Lady Gaga and beyond.
