From a mixed-race household with Middle Eastern and Irish heritage, Riyadh – with his unusual name and fair complexion – knows first-hand how judgemental the gay community online can be.

Queer Britain is a six-part series, and new episodes will be released each Sunday morning.
cw: blatant racism, sexual objectification, explicit genitalia & sex talk… mind your triggers.
there was one part of this where i had to pause the video (multiple times) and silently scream streams of expletives. guess when that was. come on, i dare you.
suffice it to say that by the time the episode finally moved on from focusing on the gay scene, i was legit relieved.
even so, residual silent screaming.
