BBC Three have revealed details of a new documentary series exploring what it means to be queer in 2017 Britain.

Queer Britain, presented by YouTuber Riyadh Khalaf, 'aims to get under the skin of queer culture and shine a light on the challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community.'

On the news, Khalaf commented: "I’m incredibly excited for Queer Britain to be released. This was a real passion-project which has moved, inspired and educated me in more ways than I ever could have imagined. The series pulls no punches and goes straight to the heart of the issues facing LGBTQ+ people in the UK today. At times it’ll make you feel uncomfortable, shocked and maybe even upset, but overall I think you will see the beauty and diversity of this community in its full glory. This is a raw representation of modern Queer life – the highs, the lows and the high heels!"

The series will consist of six weekly episodes with the first showing on Sunday 7 May on BBC iPlayer and YouTube.

The documentary's Executive Producer, Max Gogarty said: "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."
