Daytime TV
In 1972, the law was altered so that television companies could broadcast during the day and the first Gay Pride march took place in the UK.

Many young women were inspired and beguiled by daytime TV presenters, so becoming aware of their LGBT+ identity for the first time.

Daytime TV
tells the true-life story of one teenager's realisation of her lesbian identity while watching the UK's first daytime TV shows. At the same time, the artwork satirises the ludicrous view, prevalent in the early 1970s, that people could 'catch' or 'be turned' LGBT+.

Daytime TV
is one of a series of artworks created by public artist
Martin Firrell
(he/him) to mark the 50th anniversary of the first Gay Pride march in the UK.
