Steven Dryden, curator at the British Library, will talk about the Gay UK: Love, Law, and Liberty exhibition that took place last summer (2017) and which marked 50 years since the Sexual Offences Act partially decriminalised homosexuality in the UK. How have perceptions of homosexuality changed and what impact have they had in creating distinctive and dynamic gay identities in the UK?
