Glad to be Gay: the struggle for legal equality

Hosted by the LSE Library

LSE Library Gallery

The Sexual Offences Act 1967 decriminalised homosexuality in private. Over the last fifty years, Parliament has introduced significant further legislation intended to prevent discrimination on the grounds of sexuality.

This exhibition uses the Hall-Carpenter Archives and The Women’s Library collection to consider the difficult legal struggle faced by gay people to achieve equality.

This exhibition runs from 9 January to 7 April.

Just economics and politics? Think again.  While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition, the LSE Literary Festival and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the LSE Arts website.
