BBC Documentaries Teenage and Gay

BBC Documentaries Teenage and Gay

Young gay people in the UK are increasingly discovering the self-awareness and confidence to come out while still in school. In recent years there has been a revolution in social acceptance, but coming out while still a teen is always fraught with difficulties and potential danger. This documentary follows five British teenagers as they come out, capturing intimate first-hand experiences, empathizing with them as they seek acceptance for their sexuality. From the 14-year-old footballer who describes herself as a 'butch lesbian' to the transgender boy forced out of home and school, the programme features a cross-section of characters. Intimate, confessional and raw, Teenage and Gay celebrates their bravery and exposes the ostracism and bullying they can suffer.
