In conversation with Russell T. Davies

We are delighted to announce a free, online Q&A event coinciding with the release of his new TV series ‘It’s A Sin.’

The much-loved writer of ‘Queer As Folk’, ‘Years and Years’, ‘Dr Who’, ‘Cucumber’ and many more, will be joined by HIV activist Paul Fairweather for the live Q&A event on 2nd February 2021.

Russell said: “I’m lucky, because I get the opportunity to write dramas about HIV and AIDS, but I’m fully aware that the real work is done by people like my mates at the George House Trust. It’s an honour to be their patron, and to have this Q&A with them - I’m sure I’ll learn a lot!”

The event will be an opportunity for people to hear about what inspired Russell to create ‘It’s A Sin’, his reasons for supporting George House Trust and for attendees to submit their own questions to Russell.

Darren Knight, George House Trust’s Chief Executive, said, “Russell’s unwavering and generous support for our work and him telling some of the hidden stories of HIV are two of the very many reasons why we’re glad he’s our patron. This event will give people the chance to ask Russell what they really think about the characters, his motivations behind the stories and why ‘It’s a Sin’ is needed right now. Our work tackling HIV stigma and providing specialist support is never more needed. The impact of this show is going to be massive and I’m so pleased that we’re working together on this exciting event.”

Places on the free event, which starts at 7pm on Tuesday, February 2nd 2021, can be booked via READ MORE below 

Any questions or if further information needed, please let me or our Chief Executive Darren Knight in copy know.
