Jonathan Harvey

For more than 20 years, the work of Jonathan Harvey has shaped the British public's understanding of gay men. You could argue he's done more to improve the representation of gay men in popular culture than any other writer. And that's something he's continued to do throughout 2016, making him a worthy winner of the Winq Culture Award

After enjoying his huge success with the play and film Beautiful Thing and the sitcoms Gimme Gimme Gimme and Beautiful People, you could be forgiven for thinking that Liverpool-born writer Jonathan Harvey had done his bit for gay-themed culture. But rather than sit back and rest on his laurels, he hasn't stopped; this year he's written The History of Us, his fifth novel and one that once again features a leading gay character, and his 230th episode of Coronation Street, a soap which has led the way in exploring LGBT+ issues and storylines on British television. He's also written the third series of What Does the K Stand For?, a Radio 4 comedy series starring comedian Stephen K Amos about growing up gay and Nigerian in South London in the 1980s. On top of all that, he's found time to fulfil a personal ambition, contributing several characters to Tracey Ullman's Show, the BBC's all-new sketch show starring his childhood idol.
