Prejudice And Pride: The People’s History Of LGBTQ Britain
Prejudice And Pride: The People’s History Of LGBTQ Britain is a two-part series that tells the stories of ordinary people from across the UK, who share the objects that have defined their lives since homosexuality was partially decriminalised in 1967. Presented by Stephen K Amos and Susan Calman and produced in partnership with the Open University.
The first episode explores the years between 1967 and 1987 and reveals the extraordinary stories behind these objects: from a rare collection of the first openly gay magazine (featuring a virtually unknown young singer, David Bowie) to letters from the parents of those who came out following the 1967 Sexual Offences Act.
It also features the fearless revolutionaries of the Gay Liberation Front, a woman who faced losing her children when she came out as a lesbian and looks at the effects of the AIDS crisis in the early 1980s on the LGBTQ community.
Prejudice And Pride: The People’s History Of LGBTQ Britain is produced in partnership with the Open University. The academic consultants from the OU are Professor Jacqui Gabb, Professor of Sociology & Intimacy and Professor Darren Langdridge, Professor of Psychology & Sexuality.
