Out of the Blocks Takes us to the Future

A new sports history timeline, Out of the Blocks, takes us on a tour of LGBT history in sport – from 14 AD to 2018 (yes – that’s 6 years in the future!)

Thanks to Tony Bilton, we can now see how LGBT participation has always been a part of sport. The timeline includes some of the excesses of the ancients, which would be illegal and unacceptable now, as well as travesties of justice like Michael Sundin, whose death went almost unannounced because he was a Blue Peter presenter.
