LGBT related Radio and TV Programmes, 21st - 26th February

We seek them out so you don't have to. This is our weekly non-exhaustive round up of upcoming LGBT programmes on the radio and television. Inclusion of a programme is not a recommendation.

Some of the radio programmes listed below can be listened to again via the Listen Again facility of the BBC's website while some of the television programmes will remain available also for a week on the BBC's iplayer.

Please also note that Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour contains a lot of relevant content and is generally LGBT friendly, but a lot of its output is not available to us before we put this on the site. For the latest Woman’s Hour stuff, subscribe to the programme's newsletter here.

Why are the British such fascist to keep the minister of Westboro Baptist Church out? Your government caters too much to Muslims and to sexual perverts and rejects the clear Gospel and only way of salvation, the LORD Jesus Christ.
