RADIO | Queer Icons, BBC Radio 424th April 2017
BBC Radio Four presents: Queer Icons
Broadcast date: TBC
Front Row is marking the 50th anniversary of the decriminalisation with a landmark project, Queer Icons. 50 leading figures will choose an LGBTQ artwork that is special to them.
From the ancient Greek poetry of Sappho to the Oscar-winning film Moonlight, from the music of George Michael to the plays of Oscar Wilde, they will explore the works of art throughout history that have expressed what it is to be gay or queer.
These short pieces will be broadcast on Front Row and on other Radio 4 programmes in July, and will be collected together online.
