NOT GUILTY: QUEER STORIES FROM A CENTURY OF DISCRIM INATION

Sue Elliott and Steve Humphries/Biteback

Not Guilty is a powerful new history of the long, often fraught, road to equality and is nothing short of essential reading for ever y gay and bi man in the UK today. Only 50 years ago, sex between men was a crime. The Sexual Offences Act 1967 partly changed that, but it was just the beginning of the long fight for equality in the eyes of the law, in society, and in millions of private lives. Personalising the political, this excellent new history book accompanies a Channel 4 documentary revealing that story through the lives of gay men who witnessed those battles first-hand and were affected ever y day. From a right-wing press crusade demonising “perverts” to police entrapment and lives lived in secrecy, fear and isolation, this vital record unearths the emotional and psychological impact of the discrimination and persecution of gay and bi men under British law. The freedoms we enjoy today have been hard-won by real people on the front lines of equality and this book eloquently weaves their stories together. This is our history and we should all know it.
