Curated and directed by Mark Gatiss, Queers will feature eight 15-minute monologues, written in response to the 50th anniversary of The Sexual Offences Act, which partially decriminalised homosexual acts between men. The series is going to be broadcast as part of the BBC’s Gay Britannia season this summer. Each of the monologues will explore some of the most poignant, funny, tragic and riotous moments of British gay history ans well as the very personal rites-of-passage of British gay men through the last one hundred years.

Here’s what we know about them so far:

The Man On The Platform: Ben Whishaw returns home from the First World War
