BBC America is set to air the hit British gay drama miniseries Queers later this year. The show was curated by Sherlock’s Mark Gatiss and consists of eight monologues delivered by different renowned actors.
The show originally aired in the United Kingdom as one part of the larger “Gay Britannia” series, which was created in celebration of the Sexual Offences Act that decriminalized homosexual behavior in the region fifty years ago.
Each monologue is up to fifteen minutes in length, delivered by some of our faves: Alan Cumming, Russell Tovey (Looking), Ben Whishaw (Spectre), Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones), and Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk), to name a few.
“I’m thrilled and delighted to have been asked to curate this exciting series from both established LGBT writers and a whole host of new talent fresh to the screen,” Gatiss explained in Variety’s report. “At this challenging and fluid time, 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.”
