To say England has a complex relationship with homosexuality is to put it extremely mildly. This is the country that waited until 1967 to fully decriminalize gay sex acts, after all (though America’s no champion in that regard, either.)
Sherlock‘s Mark Gatiss will be taking on the queer history of Britain, one monologue at a time, in his new BBC Four series Queers. Starting in 1917 and ending in the present day, Queers promises to be a sweeping story of how queer culture survived even under the most trying circumstances.
‘It’s a marvelous opportunity to celebrate LGBT life and culture, to see how far we have come and how far we still have to go.’ Gatiss told Gay Star News.
