BBC AMERICA'S "QUEERS" TO PREMIERE WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 11, ON NATIONAL COMING OUT DAY

EIGHT-PART SHORT FILM SERIES, CURATED AND DIRECTED BY MARK GATISS, STARS ALAN CUMMING, BEN WHISHAW, AMONG OTHER AWARD WINNING ACTORS

· BBC AMERICA's Queers sees eight established writers respond to the 50th anniversary of The Sexual Offences Act which partially decriminalized homosexual acts between men in the UK, will air throughout the day on October 11. All eight films will be available on October 12 on VOD, at BBCAmerica.com and on the BBC AMERICA App.

· Curated and directed by Mark Gatiss (Sherlock), the films star award winners Alan Cumming (Battle of the Sexes), Ben Whishaw (London Spy), Rebecca Front (Humans), Russell Tovey (Quantico), Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones), Ian Gelder (Game of Thrones), Kadiff Kirwan (Black Mirror) and Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk).

· The films are written by Matthew Baldwin, Jon Bradfield, Michael Dennis, Keith Jarrett, and Gareth McLean, who are writing for television for the first time, alongside established screenwriters Jackie Clune, Brian Fillis and Gatiss himself.

· Taking in 1957's Wolfenden Report, the HIV crisis and the 1967 Sexual Offence Act itself, the eight monologues will explore some of the most poignant, funny, tragic and riotous moments of British gay history and the very personal rites-of-passage of British gay men through the last one hundred years.

· The series is produced by BBC Studios Pacific Quay Productions and is a co-production of BBC and BBC AMERICA.
