London-based Irish youtuber Riyadh Khalaf has a brand new series Queer Britain for BBC Three.
The series consists of 6 episodes and is available on BBC Three iPlayer and YouTube channel.
Riyadh will be talking to numerous people across the community, to discover some of the problems the LGBTQ+community deal with in everyday life.
Riyadh uses his own personal experiences to investigate issues affecting many 16-35 year old LGBTQ+ people across the UK. Throughout the series he will meet those sleeping rough due to their sexuality, people who avoid the community and he will also be going behind the scenes with performers from the highly successful club night “Sink The Pink.”
Executive Producer for BBC Three, Max Gogarty says: "This is an exciting series that offers a distinctive, contemporary and colourful look at what it means to be young and queer in Britain today. Launching a formidable new talent in Riyadh, a diverse and young team behind the camera, plus brilliant short-form for social around each episode, I'm sure it will have real impact with audiences and the wider community."
