Gay and Under Attack

Episode 1 of 3

Reggie discovers that, for young black and Asian gays and transsexuals, their harshest critics and persecutors often come from their own communities, or even their own families.

Being a British guy in 2015 is not easy, and in this series Reggie Yates travels to the extreme edge of modern British masculinity, to discover that 21st-century pressures are changing the way we live, the way we love, and even the way we look.

In the first film, Reggie is shocked to discover that, for young black and Asian gays and transsexuals, their harshest critics - and persecutors - often come from their own communities, or even their own families. Whether it's young Muslims threatened with exorcism, or West African Christian parents ostracising their own gay kids, religion plays a part in the story. But Reggie also wants to find out why so few gay men of colour are visible at events like Gay Pride, given the special cultural problems they already face.
