This work examines the history of homosexuality in the 20th century. The book begins with Oscar Wilde being accused of the unspeakable crime and continues through the emergence of the Gay Liberation Front and Gay Pride marches in the 1990s. It includes the real-life experiences of gay and lesbian people. These experiences range from people in the Forces to those who openly parade their sexuality as drag queens, and from working class through to aristocracy struggles for acceptance in society. All these accounts are set against the social history of the era placing each experience into its historical context.
