In 2017 we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Act of Parliament which partially decriminalised homosexuality between men. Lesbians (never having been illegal) were not officially part of that story – but their rather different struggles and triumphs also deserve to be remembered. This presentation uncovers lesbian life in the 1960s.
