1967 and All That

In 1957 the Wolfenden Report recommended that homosexual behaviour between consenting adults in private should no longer be a criminal offence and in 1967 the revised Sexual Offences Act received the Royal Assent and became law in England and Wales, heralding the partial decriminalisation of male homosexuality.

1967 and All That is a touring exhibition based on the archival assets held by both the Lesbian and Gay Newsmedia Archive and the Hall-Carpenter Archives at the London School of Economics.

An online version of the exhibition will become available when the exhibition is launched.

Places and dates to see the exhibition:

* 24 June: Drill Hall, London
* 27-29 June: 'Wolfenden 50' conference, Kings College, London
* 30 June: Pride Rally in Trafalgar Square, London
* July: Barons Court Library, London
