A four-minute-long BBC video has tugged at heartstrings and shown the world what homophobia still feels like in 2018, challenging the idea held by some that LGBT+ people aren’t discriminated against in the modern day or in cities. ?
Time For Love is a poem that explores homophobia in modern society, and also the concept of normality. Do the pressures of convention turn us against one another? Is love the price?
Normality is a crowd-sourced fantasy,
the poet says.
The video has since gone viral after it was shared on Facebook by the main BBC One account, which has nearly three million subscribers.
