BBC3 has announced a new series, presented by YouTuber and journalist Riyadh Khalaf.

The six-part weekly series, Queer Britain, aims to get under the skin of queer culture and shine a light on the challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community.

Riyadh — who has a Middle Eastern and Irish heritage — uses his personal experiences to explore issues affecting many 16-to-35 year-old LGBTQ+ people across the UK.

Each episode will explore a different topic, such as the search for the perfect body, homelessness and racism.

“This is an exciting series that offers a distinctive, contemporary and colorful look at what it means to be young and queer in Britain today. Launching a formidable new talent in Riyadh, a diverse and young team behind the camera, plus brilliant short-form for social around each episode, I’m sure it will have real impact with audiences and the wider community,” said Max Gogarty, executive producer for BBC3, in a statement.

Queer Britain starts Sunday 7 May, airing on BBC Three’s iPlayer and YouTube channels.
