Out of the Shadows: Extracts for an Anniversary 1967-2017
By Fiona Pickles
& Jay Lewis Taylor
It is 50 years since the Sexual Offences Act 1967 decriminalised private homosexual acts between men over 21 in England and Wales - a partial victory, but also a deeply significant one. This free anthology of extracts from Manifold Press titles illustrates in a modest way the changes experienced by gay men over the centuries in Britain, and how these may have affected individuals.
