 Queerama  directed by Daisy Asquith  is a film created from  the treasures at the BFI National Archive. The documentary studies the steady progress of LGBTQ rights in Britain and  how it has changed the lives of all those effected. The film goes on a journey over the past century  delving into gay experiences, encompassing persecution and prosecution, injustice, love and desire, identity, secrets, forbidden encounters, sexual liberation and pride.  

The film begins with  the first ever gay relationship  captured  on film, originally released in 1919,  Different From the Others and then continues to  work its way through the decades, right up until today. It uses newsreel and amateur film from the 20s and 30s,  studies  the sexual liberation of the 00s, looks at queer and transgender scene on top of the chemsex, gay parenting and the gay marriage campaign of recent years.

The soundtrack  features the music of John Grant and Hercules ; Love Affair with the images, and guides us intimately into the relationships, desires, fears and expressions of gay men and women in the 20th century a century of incredible change.

Special features include a fully illustrated booklet with new writing on the film.
