Laura Skedgell from London Lesbian & Gay Switchboard said: "We're delighted to present this Q&A event hosted by our Patron, Mark Gatiss. It promises to be an unmissable afternoon of entertainment for fans of Mark and his cult shows, which will help us to continue to support the LGBT community on issues from coming out to going out and everything in between."
