“You can expect plenty of snogging, real connections, drama, sassiness but most importantly some real, hard hitting stories”

Kailum's family moved to Brighton from Yorkshire when he was 11. He is very close with his mum and his two sisters. Kailum says that Brighton was the best place to be growing up gay. He came out when he was 14 by posting a video on YouTube using written messages on cards. He’s really grateful that he received amazing support from school and from family at the time.

Kailum is a big fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race - so much so that Kailum has been planning his own drag character! He hasn’t had the courage to perform on stage just yet but he is eager to start soon. Kailum absolutely loves going to music festivals and is also an avid gamer who loves his PlayStation.

Kailum has been single for six years now and it’s taken him quite a while to fully get over previous relationships and now he feels ready to get back on the dating scene. Kailum uses the dating apps but finds it difficult to find people who are looking for something more than just a one night stand. Kailum is really romantic and tactile. He describes himself as a ‘furry cuddly bear’.


I Kissed A Boy launches on BBC iPlayer on Saturday 13 May at 6am and Sunday 14 May at 9pm on BBC Three.
