"The Making of Me"

For all of our PFLAG supporters in Great Britain . . .

On Thursday, July 24, BBC 1 will premiere John Barrowman: The Making of Me, a new documentary from director Harvey Lilley featuring out British actor John Barrowman (pictured) of Torchwood, Doctor Who and Central Park West fame.

The show, which follows Barrowman as he explores all of the theories, beliefs and myths about sexual orientation and families with LGBT kids, will also feature PFLAG executive director Jody Huckaby and three of his siblings, who discuss growing up in a family with multiple gay children. The Huckabys will be appearing together for the second time, following their appearance, in 2007, on Oprah, where they shared their story with millions of viewers across the globe.

We're still waiting on word about a U.S. broadcast date, and will have more details here at the PFLAG blog as those become available. And, we hope to have preview video snippets of John and the Huckabys soon, too.

But in the meantime, if you're in the U.K., be sure to tune in on July 24th on BBC 1. And come back here, in the coming weeks, for more information on The Making of Me.
