BBC’s ‘Queers’ Series Comes to America

BBC America will air Queers series a look back at 100 years of LGBT British life through eight 15-minute monologue shorts. The series is from queer Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss and features a host of LGBT stars including Ben Winshaw (Spy), Russel Tovey (Looking), Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones), and Alan Cumming (The Good Wife). Established and upcoming LGBT writers wrote each short and will feature queer life in a specified time period like the 40s, 80s, and today.

Queers aired earlier this year on BBC Four as a part of the “Gay Britania” season that celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Sexual Offences Act, the law that decriminalized homosexuality in the United Kingdom. The series will premiere in America in October.
