The UK’s First LGBT TV Channel

Gay TV is coming to the UK and will be available on Freeview channel 7 and Virgin Media 159 in the Greater Brighton area as well as globally online.

Transgender presenter Sophie Cook had this to say: “I’m thrilled to be leading one of the most exciting developments in British television for decades. This represents a real opportunity to change people’s lives. We want to entertain, educate and inspire our viewers.”

Sophie Cook will have a weekly show and create documentaries for the channel.

Latest TV’s chief executive Bill Smith said: “With support from Coast to Capital, Latest TV has launched LGBT+ TV.  However we receive no ongoing public funding, so we’ve turned to crowdfunding to finance our service.”

The channel will screen LGBT films from around the world and give a platform to queer filmmakers.
