This was a subject that hit close to home: Amal is the niece of Justin Fashanu, the first and so far only professional British footballer to come out. He later committed suicide, and the documentary included a tense conversation between Amal and her father John about why he publicly rejected his brother for his homosexuality.
What other TV has she done?
Amal presented a documentary called The Batman Shootings, speaking to survivors of the attack in Aurora, Colorado, in which a gunman killed 12 people during a cinema screening of The Dark Knight Rises.
Earlier this year she presented Find A Home For My Brother, again on BBC3. Her half-brother has brain condition LKS, which limits his communication and can make him violent. In the documentary, she explored what kind of care is available for young people with learning disabilities, both in the UK and Ghana.
