CARA Delevingne had to fight back tears whilst filming scenes at a lesbian festival for her new BBC documentary.
Planet Sex scenes will show Delevingne attend Dinah Shore Weekend, which according to its organisers, is the world’s largest lesbian and queer festival.
Cara is just one of 15,000 mulheres, trans and non-binary people out in the Palm Springs desert for a giant pool party.
Taking in the atmosphere, the LGBTQ+ activist said she’d “never been to anything like this” and started to get emotional.

“There’s nothing hotter than people living their best life and being here with this gorgeous, colourful smorgasbord of people has been intense,” she said in a voiceover that will soon air.
The scenes made Cara reflect on her own life as she revealed she lacked the feeling of community when coming out.
“I’m out and I’m proud, you know to a certain extent,” ela disse. “But in my own life I didn’t really find the community and I didn’t really speak, like experience these sort of things.
“I sort of did it in the public eye which, novamente, allowed myself to be you know, pointed fingers at or feel more of the hate than I guess the love I suppose.”
While the footage will show half naked bodies dancing and having a good time, Cara said it felt ‘so much more than that’ para ela.
“It’s just so much love in there you know,” she told the camera. “Oh god, this is the journey, this is the discovery of… Não sei, sim.
“Like I’m feeling things.. I don’t usually do that!”
Previously teasing Planet Sex, the Beeb said the show would explore and address key questions related to gender, sexual orientation, relacionamentos, the popularity of porn and more.
It’s a joint production between streaming platform Hulu and BBC Three.
