About this Event

A HISTORY OF GAY MEN IN THE 1950s AND 1960s

ODD MEN OUT traces the transformation of gay men from 'odd' to 'normal' over a decade-and-a-half of social, legal and cultural change - from the circumstances leading to the appointment of the Wolfenden Committee in 1954 to the emergence of the Gay Liberation Front in 1970.

Drawing on letters, diaries, novels, newspapers, films, plays, radio and television, John-Pierre Joyce explores contemporary attitudes to homosexual men and the development of a recognisably 'gay' identity - while giving voice to a generation of gay men and other witnesses to a neglected part of British history.

John-Pierre Joyce is a writer, journalist and teacher.
