OVERVIEW


Narrated by film actor and fellow human rights campaigner Sir Ian McKellen. This is a behind the scenes look at the life of world renowned human rights activist Peter Tatchell.

Filmmaker Chris Amos seeks out to find out why the UK's leading human right activist Peter Tatchell was for decades a public hate figure and is still today targeted with hate campaigns and smears by the far right and far left.


Over the past decade, Peter has gone from being one of the most despised public figures in Britain to one of the most loved. Despite this, there are still those who oppose him.

Hating Peter Tatchell charts his 50 years of human rights activism and the immense personal price he has paid: hate mail, death threats and violent assaults - the latter resulting in brain and eye damage.

This film documents his triumphs and tribulations, which have impacted British politics and the politics of other countries including Russia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. It includes challenges to, and encounters with Robert Mugabe, Mike Tyson, the African National Congress leadership and successive Archbishops of Canterbury.

This is a true story of overcoming adversity and of incredible personal achievement: how one man can bring marginal human rights issues into the mainstream to create change.

Peter has given his agreement for this film and will serve as a consultant. It is hoped openly gay actor Sir Ian McKellen will come on board as narrator, given his links to the Peter Tatchell Foundation as a patron.
