058 JEFFREY WEEKS 40 years of Coming Out

As a leading gay activist and campaigner, Jeffrey Weeks was on the frontline of the fight for equality for several decades.But his greatest contribution was writing Coming Out, a comprehensive account of the history of gay life in Britain, covering the period from the late 1800s until the book was first published in 1977. Now, in advance of next year’s 50th anniversary of the decriminalisation of gay sex in England and Wales, Coming Out has been revised and republished – and it makes just as compelling a read.

Now aged 70 and retired as a full-time academic, Weeks lives with his long-term partner and dog in London’s Docklands, where Winq went to meet him.

I loved reading about some of the pioneers you write about at the start of the book, men who argued against anti-gay discrimination when few others dared.

About Winq

The new October/November issue of Winq is stuffed with gay goodness. We’ve got an exclusive interview and cover with disco-pop queen Sophie Ellis-Bextor and a second cover featuring Ricky Martin. Sophie Ellis-Bextor is back and better than ever on new album Familia, while Puerto-Rican heartthrob Ricky Martin reminds us why he’s still the king of Latin pop (and as smouldering as ever). Elsewhere we meet the UK’s only out jockey, chat with actor Mark Gatiss, celebrate 50 years of Coming Out with author Jeffrey Weeks, and get to grips with Anohni’s politically-charged new album. Plus a bumper wedding section and Karl Lagerfeld in our business section. The wait is over - Winq is the luxury lifestyle magazine for gay men.
