Moral panics, misconceptions and public outrage have a history of dominating news coverage when it comes to LGBT+ issues. This talk looks some of the ‘dangers’ and taboos addressed by Leeds newspapers from the 1960s to the 1990s, and draws on new oral history recordings to explore how LGBT+ people might have had more to fear from the mainstream itself.
A talk to tie in with Abbey House Museum’s 2019 exhibition, Danger Zone, with Dr Ross Horsley (West Yorkshire Queer Stories).
Please book your place in advance (pay on the day). Talk is £5.50 including admission to the rest of the museum. A hot beverage is included.
