new bbc website on gay history



check out this new bbc website charting the gay rights movement through a series of archive programmes:

www.bbc.co.uk/archive/gay_rights/

NB I don't know if this will work if you are outside the UK.

here's what they say about it:



In 1967, homosexuality was partially decriminalised in England and Wales. Since then, terms like 'clause 28', 'the age of consent' and 'civil partnerships' have become part of the political language in the fight for gay rights.

 

In this collection, we chart the story so far for gay and lesbian equality in the UK. Many of the programmes reflect the language common at the time when they were first broadcast and illustrate the changing attitudes towards homosexuality in the last 50 years.


Please let me know what you think if you check it out.
