Voices Lost and Found: Marking 50 Years since the Decriminalisation of Homosexuality

Thursday 23 November, 6:30-9:00pm, London

Identity politics is arguably the defining cultural discourse of our time. It is also an essential part of conceptualising what it means to be human.  This year, as part of the Being Human Festival, Palgrave Macmillan is proud to host an event marking 50 years since the decriminalisation of homosexuality in the United Kingdom.  This varied debate, looking at the evolution of gay, lesbian and queer representation across history, literature and media, will delve into what it has meant to be a ‘lost’, marginalised and even criminalised voice, and examine to what degree historically marginalised voices have been ‘found’ since this momentous Act of Parliament was passed.
