2017 marks 50 years since a homosexual act was decriminalised in England and Wales. Scotland would follow much later in 1980 and Northern Ireland in 1982. Recent governments have made huge changes in their treatment of LGBT people with progressive legislation and the general public attitude/opinion has shifted dramatically.
Which leads us to ask – Have we really achieved equality? What was life like before 1967? Is our community more segregated then united?
QQT is back for a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans History Month UK special. A chance to celebrate our achievments and debate where the next battles lay.

Clare Barlow (Tate Britain)
