Good As You: 30 years of gay Britain

Thursday, 7 February, 2019 - 18:30 to 20:00

Good As You is an important book that celebrates the seismic shift that turned gay men in Britain from enemies to friends of the state. It’s a story of how the power of pop culture can place real pressure on the government and the media, to make tangible steps towards change. From ‘Smalltown Boy’ to same sex marriage, Paul interviews the figures integral to his own personal journey and to so many young gay men who found their voices were finally being heard in the 1980s.

This is the story of public outrage and personal loss, the (not always legal) highs and the desperate lows, and the final collective victory as gay people were finally recognised, as Good As You.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
