Britain is celebrating the anniversary of the 1967 act, but in fact anti-gay laws were enforced more aggressively by the state after it was passed. The 50th anniversary in July of the Sexual Offences Act 1967 will be marked by celebratory events, from Queer British Art at the Tate to the BBC’s Gay Britannia season. I feel ambivalent about the celebrations: 1967 was progress, but the criminalisation of homosexuality in the UK did not in fact end until 2013. The 1967 act was just a start. It was the first gay law reform since 1533, when anal sex was made a crime during Henry VIII’s reign; all other sexual acts between men were outlawed in the Victorian era, in 1885.feedback

Today it's like the Soviet era in Russia. Those who seek to hold a peaceful protest are being hunted by the police and the FSB security like we were some kind of criminals or terrorists. We are not. We are peaceful gay human rights campaigners.feedback
