Fifty Years Legal – Film Screening @ Hounslow Civic Centre ( With Q&A from Simon Napier-Bell) @ Council Chamber
Feb 18 @ 6:30 pm

This powerful and engaging film was created to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality, showing an engaging but informative journey through LGBT history in the UK since 1967 and how changes in politics and social attitudes, for better or worse, have evolved over the subsequent decades.

It charts both the story of the 50-year battle for equal rights and deeply personal accounts from high profile politicians, comedians, actors and others in the public arena. Leading activists and commentators explore the changes that have taken place since homosexuality was decriminalised in the UK in 1967 and the influence of gay culture on society.

Simon Napier-Bell established a name for himself in the ‘60s as manager of groups such as The Yardbirds, before going on to manage T Rex, Wham! and George Michael, Boney M, Sinitta and Ultravox, among others.

This screening features a Q&A session after the film with Simon Napier-Bell
