This compilation of archive footage illustrates the history of LGBT lives, cultures and communities in Britain. With films spanning from 1909 to 1994, it documents a period in which homosexuality went from being a criminal offence to annual Pride celebrations, capturing the decades-long campaign for political change, and the shifting attitudes to LGBT people across the country through an engaging, often humorous collection of documentary material and short film. This is a moving and important programme, encompassing both the public fight for basic human rights and more personal, deeply moving stories, culminating in the right to proudly proclaim who you are.
Mild sex references, discriminatory language. Please note the film contains a sequence of flashing lights which might affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
