“This month is LGBT History Month, and the History of LGBTQ+ people so often goes unwritten or unseen, but as a gay man living with HIV for nearly 18 years, it has been an honour to be involved in such a landmark production that has stamped a painful but important part of our community’s story loudly and proudly into the history books.”
says Nathaniel Hall
Icon Actor and Theatre Producer Nathaniel Hall is currently gracing our screens in Russell T Davies’ and Red Productions’ hugely successful ‘It’s A Sin’ in the role of Donald Bassett, focusing on the HIV/AIDS Pandemic of the 80’s.
