Anniversaries part 1

Not my anniversaries but a quick look at way the debate and discourse  around LGBTQ+ identities in the UK is so stilted 

In 1988, yes 1988, the Thatcher Government passed the Local government act 1988, the relevant part here being Section 28 of that act.

It took until November 2003 for S28 to be repealed. 

2003  ...

more to come on this topic ...
