The Canberra Times Review: Documentary Hating Peter Tatchell profiles the gay rights activist

Peter who? Just in case you aren't sure you have the right person in mind, the lively montage that opens this documentary is a powerful reminder of the lifetime of protest that Peter Tatchell represents. Storming pulpits, attempting citizen arrests of dubious foreign leaders visiting London, travelling alone to former Communist countries to protest the persecution of gays.

The list of LGBTQ campaigns that he has been supporting during 53 years of activism is astounding, and as a result this doco is bursting at the seams. Even so, it doesn't seem possible that all the protests this Australian expat human rights activist is known for, and loathed for by some, could possibly be included. Read the full review.
