I am a reporter with BBC Northern Ireland’s current affairs television programme, Spotlight.
We intend to broadcast an edition in September which will assess the reality of being gay in Northern Ireland, any societal problems encountered by gay people, and the levels of tolerance and prejudice in existence.
It is our intention to interview a wide range of people, from gay activists to mainstream politicians, from parents of gay people to community groups, from religious leaders to gay Christians, and others.
If you are gay, Christian, and living in Northern Ireland, I would appreciate it if you would contact me to discuss, in the first instance, your possible contribution to the programme in question.
I’d like to chat informally to any members who might consider going on camera to reflect upon their faith and their sexuality. If interested, we could then discuss the actual process of filming for the programme.
All calls will be in confidence. My mobile number is 07779 329634. My producer, Elaine Forrester, is on 07968 904623.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Reporter, BBC Northern Ireland Television Current Affairs
