She discusses the importance of representation and the recording of diverse narratives on the WYQS project, reflects on what’s changed since Section 28 and what still needs to be challenged, and the importance of queer DIY spaces – both political and fun.

Stories featured: Lesbian and gay tea dances in Leeds and Saltaire (contributed by Ian Baxter); The importance of seeing yourself represented (Tristan); and Teaching under section 28 (Char March).
