In The South

Seeking Brightonians for new BBC documentary

Gary Hart September 26, 2016

Brighton-based TV company Factory Films are producing a documentary to be shown on BBC South East in 2017 about Brighton’s role in the fight for LGBT+ equality.

web-600Broadcaster, comedian and gay rights activist, Simon Fanshawe, will reveal the extraordinary story of the fight for equality over the last 50 years, through the colourful history of his home town and its community.

The producers are looking for people to help with their research and/or to take part in the programme, especially same-sex couples with children, or couples due to marry in the next couple of years. Although if neither of these applies to you but you have some interesting or evocative stories you’d like to share, or photos, footage, memories, diary entries etc, they would also very much love to hear from you!

Filming takes place mid October so they need to hear from you soon! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
