It's the Law

I have heard a lot this year about celebrating 50 years since the decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK.

I learnt a lot, maybe you will too.   I know that a whole hour is quite a long to time to listen, but it is most rewarding, eye opening, and illuminating as to why so many gay men of a certain age can still be pretty cross.
