The Story of Section 28

Submitted by Janine on 30 August 2014 at 21:20

This abridged version of an article published in Workers' Liberty, December 1997, was included in the Workers' Liberty pamphlet Radical Chains: Sexuality and Class Politics, published in 1999.

In 1987, the anti-gay law Section 28 made its first appearance in Parliament. It was to mark a turning point in the lesbian, gay and bisexual movement.
